Council framework is spread over seven lots and Computacenter is in six of them

Computacenter is the major winners in a three year multi-lot £10.3 million framework to provide IT hardware and software services to organisations across Liverpool City Council.

The new seven-lot framework replaces a previous deal the council had with BT to supply similar services. BT was bought out of that deal as the council said it wanted to save more money.
