Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK) Ltd. has been awarded a position on the Government Tendering Framework Agreement valued at £904 million ($1.444 billion/€1.082 billion) during the next four years.
The Framework Agreement covers Multifunctional Devices (MFD) and Services; Managed Print Services (MPS); and Print Audit Services, which will be managed by the Government Procurement Service, YPO and ESPO, and will be utilised by several public sector services, emergency services, the NHS and other public bodies.
Konica Minolta highlighted its agreement coverage on MFD and Services, estimated to be worth up to £570 million ($910 million/€682 million); and MPS, allocated a potential value of £140 million ($223 million/€167 million).

The agreement set a very high bar for equipment performance and customer intimate service delivery, enabling us to provide improved profitability and efficiency into our customers’ environments.
“We will meet the exacting environmental standards demanded in the contract through our proven green managed print services, technologies and methodologies […] Konica Minolta’s Optimized Print Services (OPS) programme for MPS contracts is designed to reduce costs, drive efficiency and increase productivity both within the office, and within in-plant document production areas, and we are very much looking forward to working with our public sector customers in the coming years.”
