Capita nominated as Kyocera supplier on the National Education Printer Agreement

18 August 2016

Capita Document & Information Services (CDIS) announces it has been nominated on lot 2 of the new National Education Printer Agreement (NEPA) framework for Managed Print Services (MPS), as a supplier of Kyocera equipment to its members.

Designed by education and technology experts from within the higher education community; the NEPA framework is fit for purpose for the HE sector. Users of the NEPA can be confident that successful service providers have gone through a rigorous process to get onto this OJEU compliant framework.

NEPA is available to any member institution of the UK Higher Education Purchasing Consortia: NEUPC, NWUPC, LUPC (including NHS London Procurement Programme), SUPC, APUC and HEPCW. Colleges and other public funded bodies are also able to access NEPA as associate or affiliated members of the consortia.

Andy Hughes, senior procurement manager, North Eastern Universities Purchasing Consortium (NEUPC) says: “It is important when selecting suppliers to ensure they can fulfil both the needs of the membership now and in the strategic planning of the future.”

Alpesh Unalkat, CEO of managed print services, Capita Document & Information Services, said: “Within the further and higher education sectors there are two distinct customer groups – staff and students. As part of this new framework, we look forward to working with any new clients to help identify their specific requirements. We can help establish where print services can be used to support wider initiatives such as revenue generation from student print services, or as part of high quality services to support student recruitment and satisfaction.

“The majority of NEPA members may know Capita in another capacity such as through our student relationship software or staff recruitment programme and we are very excited about the opportunity to bring additional services to them.”
