RM1059 Framework Details

Start date 04-08-2014

Finish date 03-08-2018 (extended)

What is the framework for?

The Local Authority Software Applications (LASA) framework has been introduced by Crown Commercial Service (CCS) to assist public sector organisations deliver services to the citizen and has been structured along operational business areas. Although primarily aimed at the Local Authority sector, it can be used by all UK public sector organisations, including central government, health, education, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence and not-for-profit organisations.

There is a catalogue associated with this framework, which enables public sector buyers to ‘click and buy’ the business software and related services featured on it, significantly reducing their procurement cost and timescales. Unlike G-Cloud, the LASA catalogue is only visible to public sector buyers with CCS-supplied ID and password.  

Here’s where we can help

  • server-based and cloud-based solutions
  • a range of related services, including consultancy, training, hosting, implementation and support and even associated hardware (up to 10% contract value) – everything the buyer needs to meet their requirement.

Public sector buyers can use the LASA competitive framework and catalogue to procure business solutions, software and related services divided into Lots:
