A host of resellers have won a bagged a spot on a £500m framework that will provide "end-to-end" IT to the NHS.
The Digital Workplace Solutions framework is managed by NHS Shared Business Services (SBS) and replaces the predecessor "Link: IT Solutions".
Suppliers on the new iteration include Computacenter, Softcat and Total - while Dell is included as a direct supplier. A full list of suppliers can be found below.
Total Computers sales director Kieran O'Connor said: "We're already working with NHS Shared Business Services through ‘The Edge4Health', so are thrilled to be a ‘Digital Workplace Solutions' supplier and see it as further endorsement of our ability to provide the public sector with competitive pricing, technical excellence and great service."
The framework went live yesterday (10 August) and will run for an initial two-year period, with an option to run for a further two years after. Since publication, NHS SBS has told CRNthat the framework is worth an estimated £500m.
It covers everything from servers, storage and networking, to client devices.
Phil Davies, director of procurement at NHS SBS, said: "NHS Shared Business Services manages an extensive portfolio of framework agreements, which provide public sector organisations with an easy to access and compliant route to competitive pricing, to help drive savings and improve efficiency."
