CCSS are proud to announce that we have been ranked FIRST in the recently awarded FIRE ALARM, DETECTION & SUPPRESSION EQUIPMENT FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT from Crescent Purchasing Consortium.

CPC are a purchasing consortium, owned and run by the FE sector. We provide our members with specialist advice on best spending practices and how to obtain best value for money.

Our main purpose is to produce EU-tendered purchasing frameworks. CPC frameworks cover a wide variety of products and services, and our aim is to continue to develop this portfolio in line with our members’ needs.

We harness the collective spending power of our members to drive down costs from our suppliers, meaning that we can deliver savings that couldn’t be obtained through tenders done by individual institutions.

The CPC team is made up of experienced and dedicated procurement experts who are able to offer support and guidance to any member who requests it. General advice can be sought from our Helpdesk, and our Contracting team can assist with more technical queries. We can also offer onsite support through our in-field representatives in certain areas.

So if you are involved in any education sector this framework is available to you, Creche, Nursery, Infants, Juniors, Seniors, College or University CCSS can offer you competitive rates that have been proven to be competitive.
