How to Buy Our Services on KCS Managed ICT Services

Under the framework, there are currently two procurement tendering options available to obtain our services: a direct award or via a further competition (mini-tender).

Direct Award

To avoid the time-consuming process of a mini-tender, you can issue a direct award under this framework when a service fully meets your requirements.

You can also direct award our services via this framework. You must be able to select Cantium as the most appropriate supplier based on one of the following criteria:

  • Ability to supply the required quantity
  • Product or service required is unique/exclusive to one supplier
  • Continuity of existing services or goods
  • Current architecture

View the KCS Managed ICT Services User Guide for more information and terms on how to use direct award to purchase our services.

Further Competition (Mini-Tender)

A further competition with all the awarded suppliers on the agreement to determine the most appropriate supplier for a defined period or project. A mini-tender template is available on the KCS Professional Services website.

We partner with you to ensure that our Managed ICT Solutions work for you and your back-office.
Contact our dedicated team today to talk through your requirements, and we can guide you through the process.
