Already a major success in the higher education sector and in our neighbouring arts, sciences and cultural sectors, the National Desktop and Notebook Agreement (NDNA), led by LUPC working with Universities and Colleges Information Systems Association (UCISA) has seen a marked increase in business, statistics show.
The past year saw a 15% increase in national spend through the agreement, from £72m in 2010/11 to £83m in 2011/12, demonstrating the excellent value the agreement continues to offer users compared with other framework deals.
LUPC Director Andy Davies said: “This is another major boost in our efforts to meet the Diamond Report target – to channel 30% of non-pay spend through effective, collaborative procurement arrangements – by 2016. Take-up of this agreement by the sector is now very, very high, reflecting all the hard work put in by IT and procurement professionals across higher education.”
Tenders for the next iteration of this strategically-important supply agreement are due by 13 February.”
