BOWE SYSTEC UK are pleased to announce that they have been awarded to the Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) Tracking Systems and Related Services framework agreement by The Countess of Chester Hospital Commercial Procurement Services (CPS).
The National Health Service (NHS) and the wider public sector is facing a period of intense financial pressure to reduce costs. Authorities are looking towards innovative solutions to help reduce their cost base and increase efficiency across all departments. Innovations in the supply chain management of office, corporate and facilities suppliers and services have emerged, and existing national frameworks are not taking advantage of these innovations. A new national framework offering alternative methods of managing a variety of supplies and service expenditure portfolios to participating authorities, will allow them to release time and revenue to focus on the delivery of vital public services.
The CPS is a centre of procurement expertise providing strategic and specialist procurement services and advice to NHS trusts, wider public sector and private sector clients. As part of its work, the CPS has established a Framework Agreement – RFID Tracking Systems and Related Services – for use by all UK public sector bodies. The framework agreement will be accessible for use by all UK Central Government Departments and their Arm’s Length Bodies and agencies; Non Ministerial Departments and Executive Agencies; and, the wider public sector including the NHS.
