European Electronique has a long history of supplying Public Sector customers who procure via frameworks. In order for an organisation to be accepted onto a Framework it must undergo a stringent bid process to demonstrate best service and competitive pricing. The Framework gives the organisation access to suppliers who provide the products and services that best meet their needs. 

European Electronique is proud to be accredited on a number of Public Sector Frameworks: 

Crown Commercial Services Technology Products and Associated Services (TEPAS) RM6068

Partner Alliance 

A large proportion of European Electronique’s business is derived from opportunities released via the Frameworks. However, where the requirements are outside our areas of expertise, we forge partnerships with organisations which can provide the best solutions at the most competitive pricing. 

Procurement departments within Public Sector organisations can also take advantage of European Electronique’s Partner Alliance program. If your organisation has a specific requirement and the specialist supplier cannot be found on any of the Frameworks, we can assist in identifying the supplier and work with you through the procurement process.
