Certes Computing, the Midlands-based IT recruitment company, has clinched a new agreement which will enable it to supply specialist IT contractors to public sector organisations under a catalogue of agreed rates and mark-ups.

The Catalist framework agreement has been awarded by OGCbuying.solutions, an executive agency of the Office of Government Commerce in HM Treasury, and has been established to help public sector organisations save money by providing a route which allows them to buy the high quality products and services they need quickly, efficiently and at highly competitive prices.

Simon Churan, Certes managing director, said: "This is a great achievement for Certes and one we're extremely excited about, having already developed a number of successful client relationships across many health service, central and local government organisations.

"Our involvement in Catalist gives us the opportunity to really grow our involvement in the public sector which continues to present some of the most exciting and challenging assignments for IT contractors."

Certes' award, as one of the accredited Catalist IT contractor suppliers, was the result of a competitive procurement process managed by OGCbuying.solutions, which was designed to assess whether potential suppliers met the strict service quality, value for money and compliance criteria currently driving public procurement.

The agreement allows customers throughout the public sector to place orders with Certes under standard terms and conditions of the agreement.

Certes Computing, based at Roman Way, Coleshill, boasts a 23 year track record of supplying major technology recruiters in the private and public sector.
