- What are business cases are you looking to achieve with this technology?
- What are your technical and procurement requirements? Read the Governments guidance on choosing technology

We can help you during the all-important research phase, so you can ensure you receive the solution and services you are looking to achieve from the procurement exercise.
CCS offer two methods of procurement when buying through the RM6116 framework
- Direct Award: with a Direct Award you can easily procure products and services without the need to run a further competition when there is a valid Service Offer (SO) published on the Government eMarketplace. The first step is to contact your Account Manager who will help you to fill out the Direct Award Call Off Order Form.
Benefits of direct award:
- Formally recognised with pre-defined products and services
- Service offers enable a quicker route to cost savings
- A faster route to contract, signature and service delivery
- Combination of catalogue items to purchase a wider solution
- No tender process needed
- Further Competition: this helps you to amend or refine a wider range of the template call-off terms and conditions, giving you more flexibility when defining your statement of requirements. This route should be used when you need suppliers to develop proposals or solutions to meet your statement of requirements. It can also be used when your requirement covers multiple lots of the RM6116 agreement.
