7 Benefits of the Pan Government CCS Records Management Framework

Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Records Management framework was primarily developed to deliver procurement savings to the UK public sector. It also supports the protection of front-line services and reduces costs to taxpayers. Framework customers receive a competitive solution for off- and on-site records management including:

  • document storage and cataloguing
  • scanning, archiving and digital storage
  • bulk transfers
  • storage audit
  • file cleaning and review

What are the benefits of the framework?

Large organisations can expect to save 15-30% via the CCS framework – this is based on experience in comparing rates and delivering strong operational efficiencies to organisations using the framework over the past four years.

  1. Value. The framework rates have been benchmarked in the past 12 months, and are proven to be best value.
  2. Easy Access. A direct-award option for off-site storage is designed to enable public sector organisations to access these rates without a lengthy and costly procurement process.
  3. Rapid Delivery. You can contract within 4 weeks and start using services immediately.
  4. Bespoke Public Sector IT Focus. The framework uses a purpose-designed modern records management system with data stored and backed up in the UK.
  5. Quality Assurance. The framework features agreed and enforced contractual terms for non-performance and unforeseen incidents.
  6. Service level agreement. The framework offers quality services and includes stringent service levels.
