Tusker has won a place on the Salary Sacrifice Cars and Associated Services Framework, which was developed by Leicester City Council and is now available to more than 70 councils and 40 NHS Trusts, as well as multiple fire and police authorities.
Following a full OJEU tender exercise, the single supplier framework for Salary Sacrifice Cars now means that public sector bodies can directly access Tusker’s car benefit scheme in full compliance with the Public Contract Regulations, 2015.
Cory Laywood, corporate payments manager, said: “All of the applicants were assessed on their technical and professional ability, previous track record of delivering similar contracts and on their financial stability. Tusker were the clear winners on all counts.”
As the framework terms have been signed to govern the hire agreements, there is no need for organisations to conduct their own tenders internally, reducing the administration required prior to setting up the scheme, it said.
There is also no cost to access the framework or the car benefit scheme, ensuring it is accessible for all organisations to offer to their staff.
Tusker’s scheme can provide all employees with a brand new car, complete with insurance, road tax, breakdown cover, servicing, maintenance and tyres.
Tusker’s CEO, Paul Gilshan, said: “I’m delighted that Cory and the team have developed this new framework and have appointed Tusker as their sole supplier. We hope this will build upon the great relationships we have within the public sector and the many thousands of employees who already enjoy our award-winning benefit.”
