National Server and Storage Agreement

OCF is accredited to supply and integrate IBM server and storage and Fujitsu server hardware to UK academia through the IT purchasing framework agreement, National Server and Storage Agreement (NSSA).  

NSSA is an IT purchasing framework agreement which enables all universities, higher education and further education colleges to purchase equipment without the need to go through individual EU tenders. This reduces procurement costs and time. Simon Spencer is OCF's dedicated contact to drive the programme into UK academia and to answer any queries.

“The NSSA accreditation is further reassurance to our current and prospective customers that OCF understands the requirements and intricacies of UK academia,” says Steve Reynolds, Sales Director, OCF. “NSSA members will continue to benefit from the most competitive pricing on IBM and Fujitsu hardware in the education and research sector, plus this will now be supported with our integration expertise.  OCF is committed to this programme and having dedicated in-house resource to help drive the programme into UK academia is testament to that.”

NSSA consists of six key UK geographical regions: The Southern Universities Purchasing Consortium (SUPC); the Universities Colleges and Information Systems Association (UCISA); the Higher Education Purchasing Consortium for Wales (HEPCW); London Universities Purchasing Consortium (LUPC), North West Universities Purchasing Consortium (NWUPC), North Eastern Universities Purchasing Group (NEUPG), Proc-SNI (Procurement Scotland &NI) and Research Councils. All members of these regional consortia benefit from:
