National eCommerce Framework Agreement Secured

May 18, 2012

@UK PLC is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a four year national eCommerce framework agreement for all UK public bodies. @UK is the only organisation that has been named in all three lots of the framework, being Catalogue Solution, Spend Analysis and P2P Transaction Exchange and is therefore the only organisation that can provide a complete solution under the framework.

The framework covers all UK public bodies, comprising the NHS, local authorities, educational establishments, police and emergency services, central Government departments and their agencies, registered charities, housing authorities and social lanlords.

Chairman of @UK, Ronald Duncan said: - "The framework has been led by the NHS in response to the National Audit Office report which used @UK's unique technololgy to identify £500 million of savings in NHS consumables through the use of eCommerce. We are the only company to have been successful in each of the three lots of the national framework agreement and believe the scale of this framework, and our unique position, means that it could be a significant driver of new business for @UK. We look forward to working with all public sector bodies to identify and deliver their savings through use of our Spend Analysis and eCommerce Marketplace."
