Augmentas awarded coveted place on Crown Commercial Service’s Management Consultancy Framework Three (MCF3)

Augmentas has been awarded a coveted place on the Crown Commercial Service’s Management
Consultancy Framework Three (MCF3). This means the consultancy is now one of only 35 suppliers on Lot 6 to deliver procurement and supply chain services to public sector in the UK.

The CCS helps buyers in central government and across the public and third sectors purchase everything from locum doctors and laptops to legal advice and management services. The idea being that the collective purchasing power of its customers means it can get the best commercial deals in the interests of the taxpayers. In 2019/20, the CCS helped more than 18,000 customers achieve commercial benefits totalling over £1 billion of public money.

Augmentas MD, Glenn St John-Colgan, said: “This is a significant step forward for our business. We already have a strong track record of offering all aspects of procurement to the public sector, but achieving a place on the MCF3, with its access to thousands of government and public sector customers, will enable us to extend our expertise and services even further. As a rapidly growing consultancy, this recognition and approval from the CCS will no doubt play a critical role in our continued success.”

The CCS organises the purchase of supplier consultancy through frameworks. A framework comprises a description of common public sector requirements, a list of evaluated suppliers and standardised contract terms. These frameworks are often divided into lots, typically by product or service type, with Lot 6 referring to the provision of objective advice in relation to procurement and supply chain.

Supplier details for each framework will be available from 6th September 2021. The CCS will review the list again in four years’ time.

At Augmentas, we make customers work smarter, deliver better, win more work, save more money and become more profitable. We offer all aspects of procurement services to public and third sector buyers, with clients including Transport for London, Office for National Statistics and the Ministry of Justice, as well as organisations such as universities, transport authorities and charities.
