Arnold Clark secures place on public sector framework

Arnold Clark has been confirmed as an approved supplier for vehicle hire services and vehicle leasing and fleet management on the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) framework agreement. This means public and voluntary sector organisations, government bodies and local authorities will have access to the services the Arnold Clark Group offers.

What is the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) framework?

The CCS is a professional procurement service. They secure a range of products and services for the public sector, with the goal of achieving maximum commercial value for the government departments they serve.

A CCS framework contains a list of approved public sector suppliers. These frameworks are usually broken into lots, typically by product or service type. Approved suppliers have to be thoroughly evaluated and prove to be capable of delivering the requirements and standardised contract terms.

What CCS frameworks are Arnold Clark part of?

Arnold Clark Car & Van Rental and Arnold Clark Vehicle Management are both CCS-approved suppliers.

Public Sector Vehicle Hire Solutions
(Framework ID: RM6013)

Under this framework, public sector organisations will have access to short and long-term hire vehicles. These vehicles include:

  • • Cars
  • • Light commercial vehicles (LCV)
  • • 4×4s
  • • Minibuses
  • • Heavy goods vehicles (HGV)
  • • Car share

This type of vehicle hire agreement typically lasts for three years, with the option to extend for an additional year after the agreement has ended.

Vehicle Leasing, Fleet Management & Flexible Rental Solutions
(Framework ID: RM6096)

Vehicle leasing

The framework offers public sector vehicle leases on contracts for two or more years. The vehicles in this framework include standard production models, specially modified vehicles and fully converted vehicles.

A wide selection of vehicles are available on this framework, including:

  • • Cars
  • • 4x4s
  • • Motorcycles
  • • Vans
  • • Light and heavy commercial vehicles
  • • Minibuses
  • • Coaches
  • • Electric, alternatively-fuelled and ultra-low emission vehicles

Fleet management

Suppliers on this framework offer fleet management services, including:

  • • Vehicle selection and acquisition
  • • Administration services
  • • Vehicle telematics
  • • Fuel card management
  • • Health and safety
  • • Grey fleet management

Flexible rental solutions

This framework offers flexible rental packages for short-term vehicle requirements (typically for 28 days or longer). Flexible rental can used when an organisation can’t commit to a two-year lease but wants better value and more continuity than a daily rental vehicle can provide. pVehicles on this framework can range from fairly standard models to completely bespoke vehicles.

We’re proud to be an approved supplier

Robin Clements, UK Corporate Sales Manager, said: ‘I am very proud of Arnold Clark’s appointment to not one, but two important Crown Commercial Services frameworks.
