Leading public sector framework specialists SBL have been re-awarded the position of single supplier of software licensing services to APUC (Advanced Procurement for Universities & Colleges).
APUC Ltd is Scotland’s procurement centre of expertise for universities and colleges. SBL are delighted that their 3 year partnership with APUC has been renewed for a further 4 years (including an optional 1 year extension). SBL’s Sales and Marketing Director Claire Gannon said “we are very much looking forward to continuing to support APUC in their vision to maximise the contribution that advanced procurement makes to Scotland's investment in teaching, research and knowledge transfer”.
SBL fought off strong competition from 3 other suppliers to be successfully re-awarded the £3.5M Framework Agreement. SBL supplies multiple Public Sector Frameworks including Government Procurement Service’s G-Cloud and Commoditised IT Hardware and Software (CITHS) Frameworks, Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S), Eduserv, Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO) and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO).
