Hitachi Solutions is pleased to announce that they have been awarded a place on the Public Sector ‘Software Products and Associated Services’ Procurement Services framework. Procurement Services, a part of the Commercial Services Group, which is wholly owned by Kent County Council, is recognised for its market-leading position in procurement services.

Following a rigorous tender evaluation process, Hitachi Solutions successfully secured a place on the Procurement Services framework amongst many competitors. This opportunity will enable Hitachi Solutions to be one of the few companies that can deliver effective solutions that can improve the lives of citizens and constituents across the UK and will likely create new possibilities for their customers to access innovative services.  Furthermore, this collaboration with Procurement Services is an exciting new opportunity for Hitachi Solutions that demonstrates their growth and commitment to the Public Sector.


“We are delighted to renew our Software Products and Associated Services framework, which has been created to help support public sector organisations across the UK. Our framework experts have undertaken a stringent tender process to award to the successful suppliers and we are pleased that Hitachi Solutions is one of our new partners. We look forward to creating a long-lasting relationship with Hitachi Solutions and working collaboratively to support the needs of the UK Public Sector.”

Tarryn Kerr, Director of Procurement Services


This framework will be open for use by all other local authorities and public sector bodies. All public bodies have access to this framework with the agreement of the contracting authority.​ Those organisations who may wish to access this framework will be members, affiliates and associates of the CBC Group, the police service, the fire service, the NHS & NHS Trusts, third sector organisations, academic centres (including Academies), publicly funded organisations and publicly owned private companies, operating within the geographic boundaries of the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and Northern Ireland. ​

“Securing a place is a significant achievement for Hitachi Solution Europe. It underscores our unique expertise in the Microsoft business applications suite and highlights our commitment to expanding our services within the public sector.”
