Chubb Community Care, one of the UK’s leading providers of social alarm and telecare services, has been awarded a telecare, telehealth and telecoaching framework agreement by Buying Solutions, the national procurement partner for UK public services.
Replacing the NHS Purchasing and Supply Agency (PASA) telecare framework agreement, the new Buying Solutions framework agreement is divided into six Lots; telecare products; telecare services; telehealth products; telehealth services; telecoaching products and services and managed services. Chubb Community Care is just one of six companies selected for all Lots within the framework agreement which will span two years, with the option for two further one year extensions.
“The framework agreement will streamline the buying process across a broad range of services and products for UK Public Sector contracting authorities, in line with European legislative requirements,” says Liz Millward, Marketing Manager, Chubb Systems. “The simplified procurement process, with its UK-wide agreed pricing structure and standard terms and conditions, will negate the need for separate tender or procurement processes, to save customers valuable time and resources.
“We are delighted to have been awarded the framework agreement in recognition of the innovative products and services we provide to promote independence and enhance quality of life for older, vulnerable and disabled people across the UK.”
Buying Solutions is the national procurement partner for all UK public services and is part of the Efficiency and Reform Group within the Cabinet Office.
