Access

Before using this agreement you must have internal approval. If you are in central government and spending over £100,000, you must also seek approval from the Professional Assurance Group. Refer to the Government Communication Service website, or email communications.controls[at]cabinetoffice.gov[dot]uk if you have any questions about the approval process.  

 

Charge for central government

Central government buyers using this framework are required to pay a charge of 1% of the total contract value.

The charge is a set contribution from all government communications expenditure through the frameworks and funds the Government Communication Service (GCS). It has been in existence since 2013/14 and approved by the Civil Service Board, Ministerial Board and with the agreement of all Directors of Communications.

The 1% management charge is collected by suppliers on behalf of GCS and is added to the total net value of each invoice. This charge is not payable by any buyers other than central government.

 

Further competition

Before appointing an agency you will need to run a further competition, see the guidance notes for further information. You can use CCS’s eSourcing tool to do this, or your own process.

You can also email CCS with questions: info[at]crowncommercial.gov[dot]uk.

Background

Campaign Solutions has been developed using the knowledge and expertise of the CCS communications category team and Government Communication Service (GCS), in tandem with the feedback received from many industry partners, customers and departments.

The framework has been designed to facilitate collaborative working to solve problems and offer flexibility in respect of fully integrated, end-to-end campaign requirements, whilst enabling the agencies to tap into innovative solutions and offer the opportunity to build collaborative relationships. In addition, the resulting single lot agreement identifies specialisms rather than being split into lots to address feedback received during our engagement with customers and agencies.

This agreement will work in conjunction with the Communication Services agreement, which will be available shortly, and is designed to meet more niche or tactical requirements that your chosen agency may not be able to provide in-house.
