Procurement - web based and proprietary devices framework: buyer's guide

Buyer's guide for the procurement web based and proprietary devices framework.

Framework overview

Scottish Procurement developed a national approach for the procurement of Web Based and Proprietary Devices which resulted in the award of a single supplier Framework Agreement to XMA Limited (XMA).

The Framework commenced on 1 March 2024 and will end on 28 February 2027. There is a 12-month extension option, giving a maximum contract duration of four years.

Buyers are reminded of the obligations contained within the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014 in relation to the award of contracts valued equal to or greater than £50,000 including those awarded as a result of a framework call-off. In particular, Buyers should note that in accordance with Section 23(2) the award to contracts must be publicised on the Public Contracts Scotland website and in accordance with Section 35 contracts must be registered in the Framework Public Body’s “contracts register”.

For all ICT Products Frameworks, a Supplier Catalogue can be accessed via the “Scottish Procurement: Procurement Information Network” group on the secure Knowledge Hub site.

If you do not have access to the Scottish Procurement: Procurement Information Network site, please ensure you are registered on Knowledge Hub and complete the membership request form.
