Gamma Accredited for new purchasing frameworks
Unify Issue 5
The importance of purchasing frameworks to the public sector cannot be over-estimated. Through short-lists of pre-qualified suppliers, and standardised and simplified procurement processes, they reduce the costs and risks faced by organisations such as local and central government, charities, healthcare, schools, councils and housing associations that are buying voice and data services.
The screening process for suppliers is rigorous, so companies that make it onto a framework short-list have every reason to be proud of the accreditation, while buyers can be confident that the companies are compliant with prescribed technical competency and business practices.
Gamma is among the most widely accredited unified communications suppliers, already short-listed on a large range of frameworks and framework equivalents. But 2018 has seen that number of accreditations grow, with additions in a number of key areas.
“Undoubtedly the most significant of those is our listing for RM3825 – the HSCN Dynamic Purchasing System which makes us an approved partner for organisations that want to connect electronically into core NHS applications,” observes Gamma’s head of public sector Sam Winterbottom.
