KEY INFORMATION Print & Specialist Paper

STATUS - Active
This solution offers a commercial route to market for a wide range of printing and specialist papers that are commonly used in public sector organisations, including:
 
• Coated and uncoated papers
• Recycled and virgin papers
• Cut sheet and reel papers
• A variety of paper sizes commonly used for commercial printing including SR sizes
• A variety of paper sizes commonly used in office environments including A4 and A3 sizes
• A variety of FSC and PEFC certified papers
 
This framework was set up to support the increasing need to make savings. We aim to aggregate customer spend on a wide variety of different papers to achieve economies of scales and cost benefits for all users of the framework. These cost benefits are passed directly back to you in the form of competitive price lists.
 
The aim of this framework is for suppliers to offer good value papers and to work with you in a proactive manner to drive cost savings. They will use their expertise to offer guidance on all aspects of your specifications and suggest alternatives that could be more cost effective. For example:
 
• Non-branded alternative papers that meet the same or similar specification as branded options
• Lower GSM papers based on the use of the final printed item
• Bulked out papers based on the use of the final printed item
• Order frequency optimisation to reduce costs
 
The suppliers are required to work with you to drive further savings as part of this framework. They will provide you with monthly management information at your request and at no additional cost. The management information will detail the alternatives suggested, the savings that could be achieved and whether these alternatives were taken up.
