The ICT Goods & Services Framework 2020

In February 2020, Oasis Community Learning launched the tender process to establish a new ICT Goods and Services framework. The new framework carried through a number of differences from previous iterations, including the introduction of a dedicated Apple lot. Sync (GBM) were subsequently awarded a position on Lot 3 - Equipment manufactured by Apple, Inc.

Tom Crump, Head of Sales at GBM commented saying; "We are delighted to have been awarded a position on such a prestigious framework, and look forward to working with Oasis Community Learning."

The award comes after a spate of successes for Sync in the education space, who have recently being appointed as an Apple Authorised Education Specialist by Apple, and are supporting the DfE in deploying Google and Microsoft platforms for schools across England.
