The National Agency for Public Procurement (ANCP) signed, last week, the framework agreement with 22 companies that provide copy and print services selected in the public tender launched this year.
These companies will now supply the bodies and entities of the Public Administration, with an estimated minimum direct savings of around 7 million euros annually.
These estimates, released by the ANCP, take into account the average annual quantities of equipment purchased by the State and compare the values proposed in the tender with prices normally sold to the public.
The agreement now signed with the 22 companies will run for two years and allows public administration bodies to count on the best prices and technical conditions proposed in a public tender.
According to a statement, these conditions may still be subject to improvement following a consultation of the organizations with all the companies now selected, given that they can make concrete proposals with prices equal to or lower than those offered in public tenders.
This is the fourth framework agreement signed by ANCP in 2008, following the framework agreements related to mobile service, road fuels and paper, supplies and printing consumables.
The Agency has inscribed in its activity plan a set of 15 procedures, among which are computer equipment, software licensing and electronic collective contracting platforms, as well as hygiene and cleaning and surveillance and security, with public tenders already underway.
Public tenders for fixed communications, travel and food services are still being prepared.
