Framework Agreements

A thorough and demonstrable understanding of the procurement and compliance needs of our customers is a cornerstone of our business. To this end, we work tirelessly to ensure we are on the appropriate framework agreements to enable you to procure your IT in the most appropriate way.

Public Sector

We have long-standing relationships with the Local Government Association (LGA), Crown Commercial Service (CCS) – formerly the Government Procurement Service (GPS) and Buying Solutions – in addition to ‘G-Cloud 9’, the Government Digital Service and the Digital Marketplace which we have been accredited on since its inception.

The current Pro5 Framework represents the interests of Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO), North East Procurement Organisation (NEPO), Yorkshire Purchasing Organisation (YPO), and Central Buying Consortium (CBC). Such accreditation ensures best value and quality support.

Previously, Phoenix Software held exclusive supply into the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA), the legacy of which is we still provide software and services to those authorities today and have a rich ecosystem of Scottish integrator partners we work alongside.

Schools & Academies

For more than two decades, we have helped schools and education bodies buy the right software with ‘best value’ practices in mind. Long term partnerships to achieve the best prices for schools are in place with the Local Government Association (LGA), Pro5 Consortium (ESPO, NEPO, YPO and CBC), Education Scotland (formerly LTS), South West Grid for Learning (SWGfL) and Yorkshire and Humber Grid for Learning (YHGfL).

Our dedicated Schools Team brings empathy and focus for those who procure for schools and academies making it easy for this customer group to demonstrate ‘best value’ in their procurement. Our printed and electronically published ‘Schools Catalogue’ is also a great asset to those seeking either inspiration or specialist products, as well as commonly purchased products.

Further Education, Higher Education & Research Councils

We are able to cut straight through the many schemes available to provide choices that meet your needs and satisfy the rigours of ‘Best Value’.

“We have been a customer of Phoenix for over 10 years and they are a one-stop solution provider. We have a wonderful working relationship with the account management team and the greatest advantage is that Phoenix is now part of a framework which helps with our procurement of services.”
Molly Chopra, IT Infrastructure Projects Manager, Citywest Homes Ltd

Charities & Housing Associations

We are very proud of the fact that we pioneered concessionary pricing schemes for social enterprises in partnership with the NCVO, NHF, NICVA, SCVO, SFHA and WCVA and most recently Tech Trust. For nearly two decades, we have encouraged software manufacturers to recognise the status of these organisations across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Today, nine out of ten voluntary organisations and housing associations use Phoenix to leverage their special status against the very best volume licensing prices from all the major manufacturers including Citrix, Symantec, Microsoft, VMware and Adobe.
