MFD Framework Y17035 – Information, Benefits & how it works

KCS Procurement Services lead on the national framework for the supply of Multi-functional Devices (MFD) and Document Solutions, Digital Duplicators, Print Room Equipment and Managed Print Services (MPS).

The framework is OJEU compliant and can be accessed by any public sector organisation such as Educational Establishments, Colleges, Universities, Police, Ambulance & Fire Services, NHS & NHS trusts and Charities.

Our internal sales team can provide you with a quotation from the four leading brands awarded on the framework or you can book a visit with our Business Development Manager.

We can offer MFDs under a rental, on a three, four or five year operating lease. Outright purchase of a device is also available.

KCS MFD Framework

Our framework has been let under strict EU procurement guidelines that apply to all government & local government departments and educational establishments. The framework is run by KCS, a division of Commercial Services, which is wholly owned by Kent County Council.

Buying Power

KCS collaborate with a number of other local authorities as part of the Central Buying Consortium (CBC), increasing our buying power and providing end users with fantastic savings and terms and conditions designed to protect our customers. We also take care of the long and expensive tender process, ensuring the very best value procurement.

No Complex Financial Leases

We provide you with a simple document to sign, detailing your order and your agreement to accept our terms and conditions.

No Minimum Billing

You will only be charged for the copies you use. We do not set any minimum billing amount.

Hard Disk Drive Removal

When you terminate your device you can request for the hard disk drive to be removed by the supplier free of charge. Please note some other services are chargeable.

Flexible Leasing Periods

Our rental and operating lease periods are flexible, with options of 3, 4 or 5 years. Plus, if you decide to terminate your contract early, we won’t charge you the ‘expected copy volumes’ that some suppliers do.

All Consumable Costs Included

There are no hidden costs with the KCS copier contract, with all toner (including toner and regardless of coverage) and staple costs included.

No Size-Dependent Pricing

We recognise the need for flexibility,and so ensure that A4 and A3 copies are charged at the same price. A copy is a copy, regardless of the paper size, is how we see it, giving you one less thing to worry about.

No Collection Charges

We'll never charge you a penny for the collection of your copier.

No Price Increases

During the contracted rental period we will not increase the price you pay for the device, nor the cost per copy (CPC).

Short Term Device Loans

We have equipment available for short periods to help you meet the changing needs of your establishment.
