SUPC members can now access the IT Equipment Reuse Recycling and Disposal Framework (ITS3082 NW). The main aims of this NWUPC Led framework are to reduce waste volumes, optimise product utilisation and enable the re-purposing of redundant items for use by others in accordance with the principles of the waste hierarchy. Structured under 1 Lot, this framework is available to Members of SUC, NWUPC, HEPCW, LUPC, and NEUPC. The agreement will run from the 15th January 2022 until the 31st December 2023 with the option to extend for two further one year periods until 31st December 2025, subject to satisfactory performance and the agreement of both parties.

Framework Details

What’s New:

Whilst the intention is for this framework to be ‘cost-neutral’ for Members, we have included an option for institutions to be able to go to mini-competition if they would prefer to use the service as a way of generating income, by recovering whatever residual value the market can withstand at the time. There is a tool that they can utilise to compare the offers that the suppliers put forward that will determine which offer is the best for them from an economic standpoint. They can choose to take this as cash, credit and/or donations to a named charity, or any other not for profit beneficiary.
