Framework Agreements Will Be Accessible to the NHS and Public Sector at the Touch of a Button
NHS and other public sector organisations will soon be able to access suppliers on NHS SBS framework agreements more quickly and easily than ever before, thanks to a new Framework Agreement Portal.
Bringing to life the company's vision of revolutionising back office services through technology, the simple-to-use online portal means that users will be able to find and sign up to use NHS SBS's portfolio of 70+ framework agreements more quickly and easily.
Users can interrogate the comprehensive portfolio of both corporate and clinical framework agreements, which generally allow for a direct award option.
Beth Loudon, head of sourcing and procurement at NHS SBS, said:
"Implementing new products and services that support efficient and improved delivery of patient care is a key part of the NHS Long Term Plan. The NHS SBS framework agreement portal will help that by allowing a wide range of users to navigate and sign up to our continuously evolving portfolio of framework agreements. We're also very proud that our frameworks have provided savings and other benefits to wider public sector organisations, and we're confident that the Portal will result in more local authorities and educational institutions using our framework agreements to compliantly buy the goods and services they need."
The NHS SBS Framework Agreement Portal will be launched later this spring, and will be accessed via the NHS SBS website.
