The Department of Education (DfE) and Crown Commercial Service (CCS) is to launch the second in a series of bulk buying deals (sometimes referred to as ‘aggregated deals’) for schools considering buying new tablets, laptops or desktop devices at the beginning of the autumn term. One hundred schools took up the previous deal, buying over 2,000 devices. Some schools saved thousands of pounds, with average savings of 8%.
Full details of the deal will be published on 4 September 2017. Schools will then have until 29 September 2017 to send CCS their equipment requirements.
