HOW WILL FRAMEWORKS HELP? KCS, a Public Sector Buying Organisation (PSBO), have put in place a range of public sector frameworks. They can cover a range of products, services and suppliers and enable buyers to procure compliantly. Frameworks give you the benefit of set terms, pricing and quality.

WE TAKE THE WORK OUT OF FRAMEWORK We know that finding the right products and services for your organisation can be expensive, and difficult. When purchasing is controlled by contracts, managing and renewing these is a complex and costly process, with a minefield of information and a huge range of suppliers to assess.

We now have a very cost efficient and reliable print estate, along with the guarantee that we are protected from any unnecessary costs Stephanie Croucher, Castle Hill Academy

We’ll help you by doing all the background work and cover any arduous technical details, such as tender processes and quotations, leaving you to focus on the important decisions. We’ll also guide you through the purchase and set up.

Photocopier & MFD contracts – buyers beware! The leasing of photocopiers, multi-function devices (MFD) and other equipment is an area in which schools frequently find themselves in contractual difficulties. Headteachers, governors and school staff need to ensure that great care is taken when considering entering into contracts for these products and their associated services. Poorly constructed deals can have a serious and long-term impact on schools’ finances and there are some unscrupulous firms out there saddling unwary schools with expensive arrangements.

Some tips to help protect you and your school If you are considering entering into a new contract and want to make sure that you are getting the best possible value for your school, following these simple recommendations will help you to make the right choices: Lease type – make sure that the contract is an Operating Lease and not a Finance Lease. An Operating Lease allows you to rent the equipment directly from a manufacturer or supplier who retains responsibility for maintenance and repair. The structure of a Finance Lease means that it is considered a form of borrowing. The finance company buys the equipment from the manufacturer and leases it to the school. The school does not get the benefit

of any warranties or guarantees and is responsible for maintenance and repair. Schools are prohibited from entering into Finance Leases under the Kent County Council Scheme for Financing Schools. Terms and conditions – read these carefully and ensure that the document you are signing reflects the actual deal that the salesperson said you were getting. Always ask for all the costs to be broken down in a way that makes it clear to you exactly what you’re paying for, and why. Never allow yourself to be talked into signing an incomplete agreement and always keep copies of signed agreements.

Shop around – there are now providers in the market who will lease equipment on a shorter term basis rather than tying you in to the typical three to five year contracts, and who won’t require long periods of notice to terminate. Find out if there are any existing tried and tested contracts or frameworks available within the local authority that you can buy into – these are likely to offer better value than a standalone deal. Upgrading – if you upgrade during the term of an Operating Lease make sure the price you are paying for the newer machine does not also include a rolled over amount from any time outstanding on the original lease. This can lead to escalating costs.

If in doubt Our specialist Contracts and Procurement Legal Team are here to help you make the right decisions. With over 30 years experience of supporting schools in Kent, we are KCC’s trusted legal services partner. We can help you navigate your way through the procurement process and make sure you get the best possible value from any contract you sign up to. And, if you’ve already entered into a contract and are suffering from the consequences of a bad deal, we can audit it for you and advise on any actions you may be able to take to remedy the situation.

Call Lucinda MacKenzie-Ingle on 03000 416 412 or email lucinda.mackenzie-ingle@kent.gov.uk, All new clients qualify for a free half hour consultation with one of our specialist advisors.

LASER

Case Study Firth Park Academy’s lighting was predominantly old, high energy fluorescent style fittings, expensive to run with high maintenance costs. Several corridors were over lit due to the high quantity of fittings installed and lighting was extremely harsh. Academies Enterprise Trust (AET) approached LASER and the challenge was to design an LED lighting system that could quickly pay for itself through savings in electricity bills whilst providing softer lighting that still creates a bright, clean look.

Key benefits delivered Work was completed through an OJEU compliant supply chain. The project was designed to meet Salix funding compliance criteria. The LASER team, Firth Park Academy and AET worked in partnership to meet school and Trust goals. The LED lighting was installed over a four week period during the school summer break. Project estimated to deliver an energy bill reduction of ÂŁ27k a year. The school now benefit from lighting guaranteed for 5 years, along with a one year installation warranty.

AET have advised a 28% saving in electricity use during the first month of the new school year alone. Above: Some of the new fittings installed
