As a business, we`ve been heavily focused on supporting our public sector clients utilising the Crown Commercial Services` (CCS) RM6160 framework. Through fixed-price work for delivery of projects, using a Statement of Work (SoW) based approach, we`ve been able to work closely with many of our key public sector clients, ranging from universities and charities all the way to NHS and local/central government, to provide them with the recruitment solutions that best suit their needs.

Who are Crown Commercial Services (CCS)?

CCS are the biggest public sector procurement organisation in the UK, set up with the goal to save their customers time and money when purchasing goods and services. With a wealth of knowledge in procurement policy, they ensure clients have access to the best, fully compliant recruitment solutions for the public sector.

The RM6160 Framework explained.

This framework focuses on the hiring of a wide range of non-clinical roles, and gives NHS contracting authorities and all UK Public sector bodies the ability to hire candidates from a variety of specialist fields across the UK, both on a regional and national level.

The framework itself consists of 6 separate lots, with each lot focusing on a particular area. As an IT and Engineering specialist recruitment agency, we cover:

  • lot 1 - Admin and Clerical Supply
  • lot 3 - IT Professionals, analysts and technical engineer specialists


What is a SoW contract?

 A SoW is a contract between a supplier and their client, whereby payment to the supplier hinges entirely upon the completion of a project or task, outlined through certain deliverables and milestones. This allows for a specific budget to be assigned to the task at hand without the client having to pay any unexpected surplus costs. It also ensures clients get the best candidates for the job, as those who apply are confident in their ability to get the job done and are motivated to complete the associated milestones within the timeframe.

Therefore if you want an output based package of work that outlines a specific set of needs, and payment is based on the delivery of those needs, Roc Search will support the delivery of the work in line with your requirements at no extra cost to you. You should indicate the type, level, quality and cost of service, as well as the time schedule required. The supplier will deliver the package of work by providing temporary workers and project teams in an innovative way, relevant to industry practices and methods.
