Pennine enters public sector procurement ring

Pennine has been selected in Scotland as a supplier across all three lots of the framework under the Telephony Services category of the Government's Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for Traditional Telephony, IP Telephony and Enterprise Bundled Services.

The DPS is designed to offer Scottish public sector bodies with easy access to a full range of telephony services through an electronic procurement process.

Pennine can now bid for contracts awarded by central and local government, universities and colleges, health service providers, third sector organisations and other state bodies.

The value of the Telephony Services DPS is estimated at £10m during its 12 month lifespan. The Scottish Government also has an option to extend the DPS for a further year.

Meanwhile the The Scottish Government and Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has placed the Bury-headquartered company on the new G-Cloud 10 procurement framework which was launched on July 2nd, securing placings across the three available lots of Cloud Hosting, Cloud Software and Cloud Support.

G-Cloud was first established in 2012 and since then contracts worth nearly £3bn have been awarded through the framework.
