Lex Autolease wins place on public sector framework

Lex Autolease has been awarded five lots on the new Pan Government vehicle lease framework agreement.

This award, along with their existing Buying Solutions' vehicle hire and fleet management services framework agreements, enables the organisation to offer a wide range of services to the public sector.

The lots cover contract hire arrangements for cars, commercial vehicles below 7.5 tonnes, including conversion and motorcycles, plus the option to provide additional vehicles and fleet management services.

The framework agreement is designed to help public sector organisations benefit from its collective buying power and maximise efficiency savings. In addition, Lex Autolease is also able to provide a fleet outsource solution for the total management and sourcing of a vehicle fleet under the framework.

Andrew Franklin, head of public sector at Lex Autolease, said: "Many of the services covered under the individual lots are interlinked, so there are great time, cost and convenience benefits from being able to outsource to one supplier for all of those requirements.

"Coupled with that, we already operate a fleet of over 40,000 public sector vehicles, so we are well versed in managing the scale and complexity of these contracts.

"At a time when many public sector organisations are looking to deal with the legacy of the Spending Review, we are best placed to offer value for money solutions."

Lex Autolease's place on the framework agreement was awarded by Buying Solutions - the national procurement partner for all UK public services and part of the Cabinet Office's Efficiency and Reform Group. The fleet outsource solution is available now and the rest of the framework agreement will commence on the May 16, 2011, and run for a four- year period.
