Procurement Routes

Procurement professionals in the UK public sector, including Health, Local Government, Devolved Administrations, Education and Not for Profit organisations can make substantial savings by using Crown Commercial Service (CCS) contracts as their procurement route.

CDS is on several pan-Government frameworks:

CDS streamlined our print services, helping us to work much more efficiently in this field, which has resulted in significant cost savings to the council every year. We have also been able to share these services with our public sector partners, which means we can contribute to a much wider goal – advancing cost-effective production methods across Local Government in general.
