The Scottish Government has agreed on a new a single-supplier framework contract for mobile client devices with HPC.

It has valued the deal, with no length stated on the contract award notice, at up to £125 million. HP was also supplier for the expiring version of the framework that has run from 2015.

The framework for public sector buyers covers laptops, mobile workstations and accessories and is due to go into operation on 16 August.

A Public Procurement blogpost has emphasised HP’s commitment to pay a real living wage to its employees and provide a range of community benefits including targeted recruitment, training and apprenticeships.

“The framework will provide public sector bodies with access to best-in-class technology, which meets or exceeds the latest energy management and environmental standards at significant savings compared to market prices,” the blog says.
