A new deal developed by the DfE and Crown Commercial Services (CCS) could help schools save thousands on new tablets, laptops or desktop devices.
To qualify, schools need to submit their requirements for new devices and send it to CCS at firstname.lastname@example.org by 10 February 2017. A webinar explains the process in more detail.
CCS will then work with suppliers to get the best price and notify schools after the contract is awarded on 28 March 2017. Schools can then place their orders and arrange payment at the agreed price.
This is the first in an ongoing programme of CCS deals. Future procurements are scheduled for late April to early May (to allow for summer delivery of devices), Autumn 2017 and Spring 2018.
More procurement dates will be announced later.
