Computeam continues to be recognised by Department for Education for EdTech services

Here at Computeam Limited, we are pleased to announce that we continue to be recognised as a high-quality ICT supplier for educational establishments by the Department for Education. We have recently won places on major procurement frameworks that demonstrate the value of our education technology to schools.

The DFE runs a competitive tender process for suppliers of IT systems and solutions to education establishments to ensure schools have a government approved route to procurement. Over the past two years Computeam have secured places on two of the biggest frameworks CPC and ThinkIT. In early 2019 the DFE retendered a replacement framework to the now obsolete RM1050 agreement with 5 differing lots all forming part of the new RM6103 framework agreement.

Computeam, despite being a relatively small company of 52 employees , decided that with the high skill set within the organisation and the majority of the company  £5million turnover being derived from the education sector that they should bid on 4 of the 5 available lots.

Computeam are delighted to be awarded places on each of the 4 lots they submitted a tender response for. These are known as lots 1,3, 4 and 5.

 In recent years, the need for technology investment in schools has been highlighted. And as a result, schools are now investing millions into systems to help students achieve more.
