Grants and Programme Services Framework (RM949)

We provide grants and programme services through the Crown Commercial Service Framework RM949 to prospective UK public sector customers.

The Grants and Programme Services Framework:

  • Supports the UK Government’s policy to manage centrally the procurement of common goods and services through an integrated commercial function at the heart of government.
  • Can be used by organisations across the UK public sector including central government, local government, health, education, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence and not-for-profit organisations.
  • Is fully EU compliant and provides easy access to support for setting up, promoting and running grant programmes, assessment of applications and distribution of funding to winning applications, saving your organisation time and money.

We provide management information to help you manage your spend effectively and intelligently. We also supply management information to CCS enabling them to identify further savings opportunities for the public sector.

Crown Commercial Service

The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) works with both departments and organisations across the whole of the UK public sector to ensure maximum value is extracted from every commercial relationship and improve the quality of service delivery. The CCS goal is to become the “go-to” place for expert commercial and procurement services.
