Apple HE Framework

The Universities Apple Computer Group (UACG) recently launched a tender to renew the existing Apple Higher Education framework agreement that has been the leading supply channel for Apple equipment to the UK HE sector for the past 12 years. The great news is that Academia have been awarded a place on the HE framework with immediate effect.

The original Apple HE agreement was established in 2002 to provide a dedicated supply channel for all UK HE institutions at a time when the demand for Apple equipment was increasing and a growing number of larger institutions were exceeding tender trigger values on Apple equipment purchases. The agreement has been very successful and is near the end of its third incarnation having been re-tendered in 2007 and 2011.
