II.3)Information on framework agreement
II.4)Short description of nature and quantity or value of supplies or services:
The Information Content Management (ICM) Category within Crown Commercial Service (CCS) is in the process of developing its Category Strategy to ensure the category is pro-actively aligning with market advancements and developing the best ‘integrated’ commercial solutions to initiate providing CCS customers with a full hybrid Information Management solution, which incorporates a combination of (Managed) Print, Post, Courier, Records Storage and Office Supplies category services.
The ICM Document Storage and Devices (DS&D) category recently undertook an extensive stakeholder review looking at customers print and records storage requirements, resulting in the production of the DS&D ‘go-to market’ category strategy.
This engagement confirmed that customers are ready for a step change, recognising that a reduction in public sector print volumes and increased digitisation has also seen the accelerated move of the Multifunctional Devices (MFDs) supply base into the digital arm of Records Management (RM).
By combining the current RM1599 Multifunctional Devices and Services, Managed Print Services and Print Audit Services and RM1689 Document Storage Frameworks, this new approach will reflect the changing and maturing needs of current customers, as well as capture the needs of future potential customers who are increasingly demanding such solutions and whose custom is dependent upon keeping up with both market and customer change in the management of its information.
The ICM Category and DS&D sub-category continues to work with both the Government Digital Service (GDS) and The National Archives (TNA) to introduce first generation service lines enabling customers to be TNA compliant and will continue to work closely and strengthen our strategic relationship with YPO and ESPO (Public Buying Organisation's) in a collaborative approach to the market.
The Category's current position, in line with stakeholder engagement, is for a proposed Lot structure that is broken down into 7 individual Lots reflecting both our existing customers' expectations and providing further opportunities for additional customer on-boarding.
The proposed lot structure is as follows:
Lot 1: Print Equipment and Entry Level Print Management Software.
— Scope of services: Limited range of pre specified Multifunctional Devices. Basic print management software. On-line, supplier managed web portal for catalogue ordering.
Lot 2: Multifunctional Devices and Print Management Services.
— Scope of services: Extension of Lot 1 catalogue offering full range of MFDs to large Print Room equipment and extended Print Management software services.
Lot 3: Managed Print and Content Management Services.
— Scope of services: Outsourced service tailored to provide Managed Print Services centred around print infrastructure strategies or Content Management solutions involving elements such as Hybrid Mail, EDRMS and workflow automation / optimisation.
Lot 4: Records Information Management Service.
— Scope of services:
— Off Site Records Management services (full end-to-end services including Intake, Retrieval, Return, Storage and Shredding);
— Off Site storage of Inactive records;
— Off and/or On Site Scanning services;
— Off and/or On Site Shredding, Destruction and Disposal Services;
— Off and On Site Combined Records Information Management Services;
— Off and/or On Site Specialist Services: Cataloguing, Indexing, Repair, Appraisal and Selection services.
(NB. Suppliers will be expected to provide all of the above as a single end to end service or as individual service lines relative to individual customer requirements).
Lot 5: Scanning services.
— Scope of services: One-off Scanning projects.
Lot 6: On and/or Off Site Sensitivity Review services.
— Scope of services: Identify material that should be retained within the department as the record is too sensitive for publishing or transferred to The National Archives for release in the public domain.
Lot 7: Audit and Consultancy.
— Scope of services: Independent audit and consultancy services, covering both Print and Records Management to support organisational strategy development, design and implementation/delivery of Information/Content Management solutions.
This arrangement may have a term of up to 48 months.
Multifunctional Devices, Managed Print and Content Services and Records and Information Management will be available for all public sector customers.
The purpose of the PIN is to:
1. Give advance notice that Crown Commercial Service (CCS) as the Contracting Authority, is to consider undertaking a tendering exercise to set up a new contracting vehicle to service Central Government and Wider Public Sector Organisations for their Multifunctional Devices, Managed Print and Content Services and Records and Information Management and additional services requirements.
In setting out the proposed Lot structure as detailed above CCS will consider a variety of contracting vehicles (e.g. framework(s), direct contracts and/or dynamic purchasing models for all or part of the requirement) in order to demonstrate a leaner sourcing approach and deliver greater value for money.
2. Gauge the market interest in this procurement.
3. Identify suppliers who would like to participate in an Industry Boot Camp. This will explain the business requirements and current procurement strategy in more detail and the intended outcome. It will provide an opportunity for suppliers to engage, ask questions and seek feedback.
