The Crown Commercial Service has developed a new Education Technology framework in collaboration with the Department for Education.
What you can buy
UPDATE: User guides now available here.
The framework ends in August 2020 with an option to extend for another 2 years.
Delivered by the Crown Commercial Service, the School Switch is a free online price comparison and switching tool, to help schools and academies compare gas and electricity prices and switch energy supplier to save money.
Energy prices are generated simply by entering a few details about your current gas and electricity use. The prices you see are fixed prices allowing you to plan your budgets with greater certainty.
This is a new initiative with a limited selection of approved energy suppliers. More will be added over time, further enhancing your choice of suppliers and savings opportunity.

The Schools Commercial Team (SCT) within DfE has reviewed a wide range of frameworks. These have been assessed for compliance with procurement regulations, ease of use, suitability, and value for money.
Follow the DfE guidance to ensure you get value for money and comply with procurement regulations when you purchase for your school.
