Scottish Procurement has awarded contracts to TNT Post Scotland and The Royal Mail Group to provide postal services to the Scottish public sector.
The contracts will run from 1 March 2012 to 28 February 2015. The work has been split into two lots. Lot 1 was awarded to TNT Post Scotland, and covers ‘ad-hoc mail’ – the collection and delivery of day-to-day post.
It also covers ‘hybrid mail’ – where mail is created electronically at desktops, and sent off-site for secure production and delivery. This innovation will reduce both spending on stationery and carbon emissions associated with the collection of mail.
Lot 2 was awarded to The Royal Mail Group. This covers the production and delivery of larger, “planned mailings”.
Both contracts apply to all Scottish public sector organisations.
