Simplified Contract to Aid SMEs Wanting to Apply for Government Work
In order to make easier for small business organisations to apply for government contracts, the UK government has designed a new public sector contract (PSC) with simplified terms and conditions.
The contract is designed to make sure that all the small sized business organisations with little or no resources to read and understand the complicated conditions that are required to be fulfilled in order to be able to provide services and goods to the UK government.
The new simplified contract eliminates duplication from the process of applying for government contracts and streamlines the procurement process for organisations that provide goods/ services to government through procurement frameworks provided by Crown Commercial Service (CCS).
Crown representative for small sized business entities, Emma Jones, said that the new contract is more precise and simpler to understand and absorb. This should save small and medium sized entities time as well as money when taking decision to bid for Crown Commercial deals.
The standardised terms and conditions of the new contract are now easily accessible online via gov.uk.
