Contract wins 02.05.19
Brightwork has been selected once again as one of four suppliers on the Scottish Government Framework Agreement for the supply of temporary administrative, catering and manual staff services in the South Region of Scotland.
The South region encompasses the Central Belt, Fife, Stirlingshire and down to the Scottish Borders. The new four-year framework gets under way on 13th April 2019.
The award is the result of a robust tender and selection process in course of which tender responses have been under evaluation against a range of technical and commercial considerations since September 2018. The four successful applicants were selected from a total of nine submissions.
The four main areas of the public sector serviced by the framework agreement are: Health,Higher & Further Education, Local Authorities and Central Government. There are approximately 110 public sector organisations making use of the current framework and this number is expected to rise.
Brightwork account director, Louise Brennan, said, “We are delighted to be supporting the Scottish Government Framework partners once again, and look forward to placing our candidates in positions across a range of high-profile Scottish organisations.”
People Group Services
People Group Services (“People”) has been awarded a place on the ESPO MSTAR3 Framework for managed services provision to the public sector. The framework makes it easier and more cost efficient for public sector organisations to partner with suppliers that conform to the highest standards of quality and value. To be awarded, People went through a rigorous process which assessed stability, expertise, technical capability and track record.
People is on the new Lot 3 for the provision of ‘Talent Pool Technology’ with its fully integrated, end-to-end solution which helps employers attract, pre-screen, deploy, manage and pay contingent workers directly.
David Stone, head of digital services at People, said, “As contingent work becomes more popular, simplifying and optimising the processes that attract, engage and manage workers is becoming increasingly important. Our integrated services digitise the entire process from source to pay.
“Technology has transformed how we organise our lives. But the processes that manage getting a contract, starting work and getting paid haven’t evolved. So that’s our mission. To use technology and expertise to transform the contingent work process. To make it easier for everyone to get on with work. For the public sector, where contingent workers are so important, it’ll make a big difference.”
The new MSTAR3 Framework was launched on 11th April.
