The Fuel Card Group and the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) have signed a new Framework Agreement that will provide a more streamlined process for public sector staff seeking to take out a fuel card in the future.
Open to all those working in central government, local government, health, education, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence and not-for-profit organisations, the new agreement could help those receiving fuel cards to save up to 5p per litre on their petrol and diesel bills.
The move has been completed in full compliance with EU law and will make the process of applying for a fuel card for public sector workers that much easier and swifter, reducing the present time from several works for applications to be processed to just a few minutes.
Steve Clarke, marketing manager for The Fuel Card Group, commented: “CCS has done all of the legwork, so that an organisation needs only to choose the fuel card or cards that suit its specific needs. Being independent and impartial, with an unbeatable range, we can assure them the best possible combination of service, savings and security.”
He added the move aims to simplify the public sector procurement process and utilises pre-existing contracts between CCS and The Fuel Card Group.
“Whether a public sector body is running just a couple of van or thousands of mixed vehicles, it can now cut its fleet running costs within minutes,” Mr Clarke concluded.
CCS is an executive agency and trading fund of the Cabinet Office and it provides a professional procurement service to the UK’s public sector.
