The All-of-Government (AoG) office consumables contract is one of the first AoG contracts established in 2010. Since then it’s gone from strength-to-strength, offering great value for participating agencies.
We have extended the office consumables contract for its last extension period of 12 months. The contract will expire in July 2015 with no further renewal options.
A RFP was released on GETS on Monday 15 September and closed 22 October 2014. This will replace our current solution for the supply of office consumables. The new solution will be in place by July 2015.
