Crown Commercial Service
As an executive agency of the Cabinet Office, the Crown Commercial Service (formerly Government Procurement Service) works on behalf of public sector organisations to deliver significant and sustainable savings, service improvements and innovations in buying.
They achieve this by creating high quality commercial agreements for their customers across common areas of spend. These are aligned with government policy and are fully compliant with appropriate European Union and national legislation, saving customers time as well as money.
They work with over 14,500 organisations across the public sector, including nearly 4,000 education establishments. In the last year alone they managed over £11.4bn of customer spend, and delivered £1.2bn of savings to the public sector.http://ccs.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/
