A host of resellers have won a spot on a £500m software framework.
Software Products and Associated Services 2, run by KCS, covers products from a range of vendors including Microsoft, Adobe and Citrix.
The 10 suppliers to win a place on the framework are: Bytes, Capita, CDW, Civica, Insight, Phoenix Software, Softcat, SBL, SoftwareONE and Trustmarque.
The line-up is similar to its predecessor, which went live in 2016.
KCS runs the framework on behalf of the Central Buying Consortium, which is made up of 18 local authorities.
The contract notice states: "The framework agreement covers the provision of a full range of software (including open source software), essential hardware and associated services and support and maintenance for cloud based, on premise and hybrid software solutions."
The products available include accountancy software, CRM, human resources solutions, cybersecurity and virtualisation.
The framework will run for four years.
