Technology Products & Associated Services 3

Introduction

The Technology Products 3 (TP3) commercial agreement will be for the supply of commodity technology goods and/or closely-related services. It is intended for use by the whole of the UK public sector and their associated bodies and agencies, the voluntary sector, charities, and/or other private organisations acting as managing agents or procuring on behalf of the public sector delivering services of a public nature.

It is the successor to Technology Products 2 (RM3733) which has recently been extended to October 2019. The scope & lot structure of Technology Products 2 can be found here.

TP3 will use the new public sector contract developed together with the Government Digital Service (GDS) and the Government Legal Department (GLD). The template contracts can be found here.

In addition a technology specific schedule will be used and a template contract can also be found below.

 

Scope

The framework will enable the continued provision of commodity technology goods and closely-related services, further details will be provided when the final lotting structure is confirmed.

Please note that TP3 will not have an online catalogue (Current TP2 L6) included within the agreement. A Technology Products catalogue will be subject to a separate procurement activity and the Crown Commercial Service's (CCS) Pipeline should be monitored for further updates.

 

Market & customer engagement

A Prior Information Notice (PIN) was published in July 2018.

CCS' Category team engaged and consulted with suppliers that operate in this market to gain a greater understanding of the marketplace. The team also engaged with customers to seek their views on current and future requirements.

The aim of both engagements was to identify where we can learn from past experiences to improve upon current arrangements and maximise commercial benefits through robust specification of requirements with the ability to keep up with new, innovative products and solutions.

Links to the files covering customer and supplier engagement to date are attached at the foot of this page.
