IT Peripherals update - interim solutions
Misco UK (National IT Peripherals framework supplier) has gone into administration and no further orders can or should be placed under this framework. The re-let of the new replacement framework had already commenced and is now being accelerated and expected to be in place January 2018.
We recognise the inconvenience this is causing you and very much appreciate your ongoing support and understanding at this time.
Until this new framework is in place, interim arrangements (detailed below) have been made to bridge the gap.
Core IT peripheral items
Core IT peripheral items (printers, keyboards, cables and so on) will be available from existing ICT Product frameworks as follows:
Hewlett Packard Inc. (Desktop and Mobile Client Device frameworks)
Any peripherals relating to Desktop and Mobile Devices including third party items (that is, non HP products) can be purchased through these frameworks in the normal manner, which includes the HP portal.
If you are not yet registered please speak to your HP Account Manager they will also be happy to discuss any other requirements.
XMA (Web Based and Proprietary Devices, Workstation and Tablet frameworks) have expanded the range of general accessories available on their frameworks, these can be found by logging into the XMA Shop directly or via your eProcurement system (if appropriate).
Please talk to your XMA Account Manager about registration if you have not already done so. Once registered, you will have access to all of the Scottish Government framework pricing, and XMA can work with you to tailor the offering as required.
For any general enquiries, or if you are unable to find a product that you are looking for, please contact the XMA Scotland team by email email@example.com or phone 0115 8464100 and your enquiry will be directed to your dedicated XMA account manager.
Any peripherals relating to Thin Client Devices including third party items (that is, non Dell products) can be purchased through these frameworks in the normal manner. In the first instance buyers should approach their Dell Account Manager for these items.
Office Equipment framework (MFDs, desktop printers, photocopiers, specialist printers and so on)
A complete range of printers and accessories (excluding toner) is available via the Office Equipment suppliers, you should contact the suppliers directly with your requirement and a quote will be raised. You can call-off directly from the framework to meet low value, low volume requirements but for larger value orders consideration should be given to full mini-competition.
Other requirements, for example, networking and audio visual equipment can be satisfied via other sector specific arrangements such as the Technology Products 2 Crown Commercial Services framework that will enable buyers to undertake a mini-competition via Lot 1 or direct buy via Lot 6 (online catalogue) for these items.
Some of the items that you request may not be standard stock items for these suppliers so delivery timescales may be longer than normal. The delivery lead times should be clarified for each order submitted.
If you have any questions regarding this information please contact Bryan Dodds at firstname.lastname@example.org or Karen Pow at email@example.com in the Scottish Procurement ICT Products Team.
