New Crown Commercial Service vehicle hire agreement launched

The latest vehicle hire agreement awarded by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) includes 11 suppliers and will run for three years.  

The framework gives customers access to cars, light commercial vehicles (LCVs), on-road and full off-road 4x4s, minibuses, heavy goods vehicles (HGVs), international vehicle hire and car share schemes. 

The agreement also makes it easier for customers to implement workable car share schemes, also known as car club, and daily rental options, which are now available on the same lot. 

Suppliers were required to demonstrate their social value credentials as part of the award and easy-to-follow guidance is given so that customers can evaluate social value during the call off stage.

Katrina Williams, head of travel at CCS, said: “We’re excited to launch this new agreement to support the public sector in achieving maximum commercial value on vehicle hire. 

“Our enhanced lot structure means we are now able to offer customers daily rental and car share services through a single supplier solution, saving them time, money and improving their experience.”

The framework is available to all public sector bodies including central government, devolved administrations, NHS bodies, local authorities, police, the voluntary sector and charities. It is also available to any private sector organisation procuring on behalf of the public sector.

The CCS uses the collective buying power of the entire public sector and its commercial expertise to help customers save time and money when buying common goods and services.
