Leaseplan's public sector division, Automotive Leasing has been reappointed as a supplier to the Crown Commercial fleet framework agreement for a further three years.
The Crown Commercial Service is a public sector organisation which acts on behalf of the Government to save the taxpayer money through procurement efficiencies.
Its procurement arrangements can be used by public sector organisations including those in the local Government, health, education, not-for-profit and devolved administration arenas, as well as the central Government.
Government departments are required to buy vehicles through the agreement, but other public sector organisations can choose whether to use the agreement or form different arrangements.
Several car makers, including Audi, BMW, Jaguar Land Rover and Hyundai were appointed as suppliers to the service in January, while Alphabet was reappointed as a supplier earlier this week.
"Our expertise in the public and not-for-profit sector has been further recognised with our listing within this significant vehicle lease and fleet management framework from CCS," said Tim Meadows, director at Automotive Leasing. "Following the General Election, the public sector remains under immense pressure to drive down operating costs and Automotive Leasing's fleet insight means we are placed to assist with this work over the next three years."
