Based in the south of England, South Central & West Commissioning Support Unit’s (SCW) team of 1,300 skilled professionals provide expert support for over 80 NHS and non-NHS customers – nationally, regionally and locally; making a difference for 14 million people across an area of 15,600 square miles. One of the directorates within SCW is that of IT Services and a key cohort within this team are approximately 70 members of staff working within IT Service Delivery.
IT Services are delivered to over 950 sites with over 33500 devices supported. IT Services engineers are required to travel across our customer footprint to provide desk side support where remote services are not viable, such as replacing faulty hardware. To support this requirement, a fleet of vehicles is available for use currently.
A fleet of 7 vehicles is required for use currently. This number is likely to increase over the next 12 months to at least 10. The vans are essential to provide services where engineers need to cover large distances, often with a significant amount of kit in the vehicles.
The Contractual model will be based on a call off arrangement, with up to 10 vehicles being leased over the contract period at any one time. Bidders should be aware that this contract advert does not guarantee a minimum spend.
