Link 51 is proud to have been awarded a place on the Crown Commercial Service Furniture Framework RM1501 to supply High Density Steel Storage under Lot 3 of the Agreement.
The framework is for the ‘Supply and installation of Furniture and Associated Services’ and the Framework reference number is: RM1501/3.
RM1501 went live in December 2012 and replaces the previous RM440 agreement.
Who is the Crown Commercial Service?
As an executive agency of the Cabinet Office, the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) provides procurement savings for the UK public sector as a whole and is specifically tasked to deliver centralised procurement for central government departments.
Wider public sectors organisations can, and are encouraged to, procure their requirements through frameworks arranged by the CCS.
What does being an approved supplier mean?
Being awarded preferred supplier status means that Link 51’s range of static and mobile shelving products has been benchmarked against other companies and found to conform to the CCS’s requirements for product quality and value for money.
Listed under group parent Whittan Industrial Ltd., Link 51’s products have been benchmarked against other bidding companies to confirm their product quality and value for money. Having already been through this rigorous OJEU tendering process, as a public sector organisation you can bypass OJEU when you wish to purchase goods over the current threshold value either in one transaction or over a period of time.
Why should you use the framework?
The Framework Agreement benefits you as a central Government and wider public sector clients by allowing you to deal directly with RM1501 framework holders when procurement opportunities arise without having to go through the OJEU process. This should help to save you time and money by avoiding the competitive tendering process that you would need to go through without the Framework; the CCS has already done this for you.
Why use Link 51?
With over 60 years’ experience in the design, manufacture and installation of shelving systems, Link 51 is ideally placed to serve public sector clients and can demonstrate a long history of successful projects within Central and Local Government, the NHS, education, museums and archives, providing records and collection management as well as a wide range of high density storage solutions for office and general stores management.
