Capita Travel and Events has been awarded a position on the government’s commercial agreement for ‘Public Sector Travel and Venue Solutions’; the new enabling route for travel and venue services.

Capita Travel and Events is one of only three suppliers to be awarded a place on Solution 4 of the commercial agreement, which provides central government, wider public sector and third sector organisations with access to travel services.

James Parkhouse, chief executive officer, Capita Travel and Events, said: “The Commercial Agreement allows customers to appoint service providers without having to repeat the expense of tenders, with the assurance that Capita Travel and Events could meet the highest service standards and deliver excellent value for money.

“Eligible organisations can benefit from our highly intuitive booking technology, which differs from anything else in the industry. With a smarter working approach, it changes the ways people think about planning travel to look after their own wellbeing, control organisational costs and support productivity. And with our focus on duty of care, we can remove some of the anxieties that lone female travellers, infrequent or inexperienced travellers can face.”

CCS supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services.
