Crown Commercial Service

Written by: Crown Commercial Service | Published:

Schools spend more than £10 billion a year on non-staffing costs such as electricity, IT and facilities management.

That is the cost equivalent of building about 400 new secondary schools or employing 270,000 primary school teachers.

As the UK’s biggest public procurement organisation, Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has a wide range of commercial deals available to help schools and academies save money on everything from technology and utilities to supply teachers and other temporary staff.

We work closely with the Department for Education to ensure we develop deals that make it easier for schools to compliantly and cost-effectively buy what they need.

Our aim is to help schools get more for their money so that the benefits can be felt in the classroom
