TFPL wins place on UK public sector procurement framework
TFPL has been awarded a place on the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Framework RM3781 (Lot 6) for Multifunctional Devices, Managed Print and Content Services and Records and Information Management worth an estimated value of £35 million.
The CCS brings together policy, advice and direct buying; providing commercial services to the public sector and saving money for the taxpayer. Under Lot 6 of the RM3781 framework, TFPL will focus on the supply of records and information management services to central government and other public sector customers.
TFPL’s Managing Director, Chris Jones, said ‘I am delighted that we have been recognised as a supplier to the Government and have been awarded a place on Lot 6. Lot 6 is concerned with providing a Sensitivity Review Service for Government departments and other Public Sector bodies. This provides TFPL with a significant growth opportunity throughout the duration of the framework. I am also very pleased that the government’s commitment to increasing its usage of SME’s is demonstrated in our award.’
Suzanne Wheatley, TFPL’s Framework Account Manager said ‘This is an excellent opportunity for TFPL to build on our existing work with the public sector. We have a longstanding commitment to providing measurable value to our clients and a wealth of expertise in records and information management, our inclusion on the framework is testament to our knowledge of the sector and the hard work of the team.’

The scope includes; determining the sensitivity of a record, considering whether the exemptions support withholding sensitive information, determining whether records should be retained, closed or partially closed and provide a redaction service for a fully managed sensitive review service.
