The OGC has finalised four new deals for the public sector.
One is a £1 billion plus four-year electricity contract, negotiated by OGCbuying.solutions, the OGC and Defra. Another is a collaborative print services deal, led by the Department for Transport and supported by the OGC. This is a four-year agreement with 60 suppliers across the UK.
Following a £1 billion Department for Work and Pensions agreement for vehicle fleet purchase (news, 14 December 2006), two further contracts for the supply and fit of vehicle windscreen glass and tyres have been finalised.
The tyres contract was led by the NHS Purchasing and Supply Agency and the glass deal was headed by the Police Information and Technology Organisation. They are expected to save £6 million over the next three years.
The details of a fifth deal on temporary labour have yet to be confirmed.
