itslearning accredited under the Department for Education’s IMLS Framework Agreement

Leading learning platform provider, itslearning, has been appointed by the Government Procurement Service in partnership with the DFE, as an approved supplier for UK schools, through its Information Management and Learning Services (IMLS) Framework Agreement.

Having successfully completed the vigorous evaluation process, itslearning demonstrated its capability to meet the Government Procurement Service’s requirements; presenting a genuine understanding of the specific needs of the education sector.

The IMLS Framework was developed following extensive research with educational suppliers and stakeholders and has been designed to facilitate faster, more cost effective and efficient purchasing decisions. It provides schools, Local Authorities and groups that are launching academies, free schools or university technical colleges, with an easy route to procure from approved, high quality, trusted suppliers in a fully EU-compliant manner.

itslearning has been selected as one of fifteen suppliers in Lot Two of the IMLS Framework Agreement, which focuses on learning services that support the curriculum through the delivery of pedagogical tools.
Commenting on the announcement, Dylan Jones, director, itslearning says: “The accreditation from the Government Procurement Service is a major step forward in further increasing our presence in the education market. Through experience, we have developed a strong understanding of the ICT requirements of schools, colleges and learning providers and we are delighted to be able to use this to assist in easing the load on school procurement, whilstsupporting the highest quality teaching, through the Framework.”
This announcement comes following two other recent successes for itslearning, as it was shortlisted for two prestigious awards; Marketing Campaign of the Year at the Education Resources Awards and ICT Company of the Year at the BETT Awards.

Agree wholeheartedly with your obsvtearions. More suppliers? Why not? As long as the cost to manage them ( in terms of Supplier Management and product / service TCO) decreases while the number increases.For more than a decade I've been a proponent of Procurement Departments approaching a Market, not a set of suppliers. In making a market, a innovative buyer/sourcer will build the lowest cost/highest value transaction base with his supplier. Ultimately, a favorable marketplace will ensure optimal, long term relationships or the flexibility to build them. Reducing the numbers of suppliers is set of supplier thinking, not necessarily where efforts are at all productively placed.Squeezing Suppliers is unfortunately a standard practice in many companies. This merely produces a short term effect and forces one's trading partner to optimize its marketplace by finding another buyer, I say its time for Supply Management to update their Market Practices, not their purchasing practices.
