Crown Commercial Service (CCS) plays an important role helping the UK public sector save money when procuring common goods and services. In 2020/21, CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits equal to £2.04bn – supporting world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.
As the biggest public procurement organisation in the UK, it uses commercial expertise to help buyers in central government and across the public and third sectors to purchase everything from locum doctors and laptops to police cars and electricity.
The CCS’s agreements and national buying power increase quality, and their commercial frameworks clearly mark out the suppliers which have been evaluated as capable of delivering the specified requirements.
