Preferred supplier status gained for products, installation, service, monitoring and software

Tunstall Healthcare (UK) Ltd has been awarded places on two new Consortium Procurement buying frameworks:

  1. Framework for Technology Enabled Care Solutions – services including Installation, Service, Monitoring and Software
  2. Framework for Technology Enabled Care Solutions – Products
The two frameworks cover aspects of Connected Care and Connected Health including environmental sensors, safety and security solutions, installation and maintenance, and monitoring centre solutions.
Each framework runs for four years to December 2020, and both provide a pre-approved, benchmarked and OJEU (Official Journal of the European Union) compliant route to market, for potential customers to procure goods and services.
As the contracts were awarded under OJEU, Consortium Procurement members are able to call off products directly under the Products framework, streamlining the tendering process. Under the Services framework, customers specify their requirement and invite bids for the work by way of further competition.
The awards follow a rigorous assessment to validate Tunstall’s financial standing, quality of offer and commercial offering, all of which are benchmarked against the market to demonstrate MEAT (Most Economically Advantageous Tender).
Kevin Alderson, UK Sales & Marketing Director commented

“We have been working with the NHC for over twenty years, helping them to provide their members with a trusted, compliant and easy-to-access route to procure their telecare requirements. The latest award of two frameworks enables us to continue to develop our established relationships with many NHC members, as well as providing further opportunities to work with new customers.”

Tracy Harrison, Commercial Director at the Northern Housing Consortium (Consortium Procurement)said

“We are pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with Tunstall, helping our members to deliver services which are cost effective and enable proactive care and improved quality of life for older people and those with long-term care needs throughout the UK. The frameworks provide members with an easy-to-use procurement route from two trusted organisations.”
