Framework Announcement: KCS Procurement Services

We are proud to announce that Healthy Bean has been awarded as the highest scored supplier under both Lots for the 4-year framework for the supply and delivery of Uniform, Clothing and Associated Services with KCS Procurement Services.

KCS Procurement Services is a trading function of Commercial Services (a wholly owned business of Kent County Council) and provides a range of national, Public Contract Regulations 2015 compliant Framework Agreements. Commercial Services is one of the largest trading organisations of its kind in Europe with a turnover in excess of £600m and supply an ever-increasing range of best value Goods and Services to other publicly funded organisations. These include local government, education establishments, the care sector, and the emergency services.

This easily accessible and cost-effective framework covers the provision of essential uniform, clothing, and accessories such as: helmets, safety shoes / boots, maternity wear, fire retardant clothing, plus size clothing, disposable PPE and much more! Our range of products focuses on comfort, quality of branding, durability, and cost-effectiveness.  

All public bodies have access to this framework agreement with the agreement of the contracting authority. Those organisations who may wish to access this framework agreement will include the likes of the police service, the fire service, the NHS & NHS Trusts, third sector organisations, academic centres (including Academies) and publicly funded organisations. The framework agreement is also open for use by all other local authorities and public sector bodies.

Key benefits below of using the framework:

  • Free to access.
  • This framework is fully compliant with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015.
  • Authorised participants can re-open competition within the framework, removing the need for a full tender exercise or lengthy supplier evaluation each time they have an audio-visual solution requirement, saving time and costs associated with procurement exercises.
  • Direct Award capability – giving you a quick, easy and PCR15 compliant route to procurement.
  • Free and full support on using the framework through the KCS Procurement Services team.
  • You are able to benefit from aggregated spend and lower pricing based on the value of the overall contract, even on low spend orders.

Healthy Bean was awarded the contract thanks to our strong experience in delivering a full suite of products to public organisations, excellent product quality, focus on sustainability, competitive pricing, and hands-on management.

This is another important step for Healthy Bean to expand our footprint across the whole of the UK and work with an increasingly larger number of public bodies. We are currently supplying to over 60+ UK Councils. We are honoured and excited to be part of the Framework and to contribute to the delivery of a sustainable, high-quality, and robust supply chain to as many public organisations as possible.
