Xerox to deliver cost efficiencies in print services to UK public sector
The UK Cabinet Office’s Government Procurement Service (GPS), has selected Xerox UK as a supplier for Managed Print and eCommunications Services. Xerox is also included in GPS’ new Wider Public Sector Print Service Framework agreement.
The contract, which has an estimated value of £6.5 million this year, will run for three years and is designed to deliver cost efficiencies in print services to public sector departments which include local government, the education sector, the NHS and the police force.
Xerox will work with the departments to rationalise and improve communication channels in tandem with the GPS’ goal to deliver additional cost savings of 19 per cent across the wider public sector.
Julie Hesselgrove, group president for communication and marketing services Xerox Europe said:
“Being chosen as an official supplier for the Government Procurement Service once again is testament to Xerox’s long commitment to supporting the provision of improved services to the public sector. This agreement demonstrates how Xerox can help significantly reduce costs while improving efficiencies for the GPS.”
Working for the UK government and public sector for 35 years, the company says it has helped departments simplify their document supply chains, remove duplicate business processes and achieve savings in cost and time. Since 2007, their work for the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has resulted in a 21 per cent reduction in costs and 66 per cent reduction in wasted print.
Xerox signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Cabinet Office to deliver savings to the UK Government as part of the Efficiency Reform Group’s deficit-reduction programme in 2010. This March, as part of an estimated £150 million two-year multi-supplier framework agreement, the UK Government named Xerox as sole supplier for a limited range of multi-function devices and one of four suppliers of managed print services and a wider range of multi-function devices.
Xerox already provides technology, document management and business process outsourcing to a wide range of public sector organisations such as the Department of Work and Pensions, Worcester NHS Trust, Manchester City Council, Newport City Council, Sandwell Council, Scottish Police Services Authority, Kirklees Council and UCLH.
