The event will include:
  • New initiatives - new products and services currently in the pipeline
  • Action review - what Crown Commercial Services has done in response to its last strategy event
  • A quarterly update - news and progress in the last three months
  • What the future holds - Crown Commercial Services’ long term vision for the future of utilities and fuels across the public sector. Further information is available at: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/utilities-fuels-customer-event-tickets-48323746627

Meanwhile, specialist Korean 4x4 brand, SsangYong Motors, has announced that it has been successfully appointed as a supplier on the Crown Commercial Service Vehicle Purchase Framework RM6060 Agreement. The new agreement replaces the current RM1070 vehicle purchase framework which expires on 1 December.

The vehicle procurement agreement can be used by central government departments and organisations across the public sector, including local government, health, education, not-for-profit and devolved administrations.

Nick Laird, managing director of SsangYong Motors UK, said: “The whole SsangYong team is delighted and proud to have been successful as a supplier for the UK’s largest public sector framework agreements. Being part of the framework will enable us to develop partnerships with a number of public sector organisations and help them meet their mobility needs, particularly, in rural and hard to reach areas.”
