CCS (Crown Commercial Service) was founded in 1991 and was originally known as the Buying Agency, changing to CCS in January 2014. It combines direct buying with advice and policy to provide professional procurement services to public sector organisations.
Public sector organisations can purchase goods and services via CCS through the numerous frameworks they have in place, which are pre-tendered contracts with suppliers.
Framework RM1034 is designed to provide public sector organisations with a choice of travel services by splitting the contract into 3 different lots. This allows them to select the most appropriate lot for their travel requirements.
