With full procurement support provided by the National Information Systems Group (NISG), NHS National Services Scotland (NSS) has awarded national multi-supplier framework agreements for patient records storage, secure destruction and their return as scanned documents. The framework will run for a period of four years. Contracts awarded from this framework are expected to be for five to ten years duration.
NHSScotland Health Boards are encouraged to use the national frameworks established by NSS to secure the savings and deliver the efficiencies brought about by collaborative procurement.
This is a multi-supplier framework requiring a mini competition between contractors to ensure best value. The five framework providers are:
Box-it UK Ltd
Cintas Document Management UK Limited
Iron Mountain (UK) Limited
Wincanton Group Ltd
