  • 'Anything as a service' - what does it mean?
    The world of technology and all of its many acronyms can be a confusing place for us all, especially with the pace that technology is evolving and the list of abbreviations that is ever expanding. One of the latest is ‘XaaS’ which stands for ‘Anything as a Service’, but what does it actually mean?

  • Updating school technology: Leasing vs Purchasing
    When you are thinking of updating your school’s technology, finance is one of the key things you need to consider. Typically, you have a couple of options – buying outright or leasing, but which should you choose?

  • Upgrading school ICT equipment through leasing
    It can be tough for schools to keep up with emerging technologies and the demand for up-to-date ICT equipment against restricted budgets, which is why many schools are looking at alternative, cost-effective ways of funding devices, including the option of leasing.

  • XaaS: why everything is now a service
    As organisations look towards digitisation to improve their own business processes and their efficiency, services are becoming an increasingly popular way to cost-effectively use and implement IT.

  • Are you getting the benefits of working with SMEs?
    As a nation we are dependent on technology more than ever, but have you thought about how small or medium sized businesses can help with sourcing this through procurement?

This framework agreement has been established to allow customers to purchase goods, works or services via further competition. Benefits of using the framework agreement include:

This framework is compliant with UK/EU procurement legislation - we've done the work, so there's no need for you to run a full EU procurement process, reducing risk and timescales for customers

Assured supplier standards - Suppliers listed on the framework were assessed during the procurement process for their financial stability, compliance to legislation, experience and technical and professional ability to give customers confidence of a quality service

Supplier choice – With 30 providers available on the framework across 8 lots, offering excellent choice between SME’s, resellers and specialist organisations

Pre-defined terms and conditions – Terms and conditions of the contract have already been established and signed and accepted by the Supplier. On awarding contracts customers have the option to use YPO’s standard framework agreement terms and conditions as established, or use their own if preferred

Aggregation of spend - customers will receive the benefits of the aggregated spend volume and increased leverage in the market

Easy to use - Customers need only to identify their requirements, present these to the market and award a contract. This can be done either via YPO or directly with the awarded suppliers

Full support service – YPO can assist you with your procurement and managing the call off-process, from the building of documents, running the further competition, through to evaluation. YPO can conduct this on your behalf (at no cost to you) taking care of all key areas making the process totally hassle free and compliant with as little or much involvement as you require

Available to use by all UK public sector bodies
