After an intensive competitive tender process, Tensor plc, the UK based, award winning designer, manufacturer and installer of security, access control, attendance monitoring and energy management & monitoring products has been placed on the ESPO public sector Surveillance Equipment/Services Framework (No. 628_19) for the provision of both Private Space Surveillance Systems (Lot 2) and Access Control Systems (Lot 3).

The framework is extensively used nationally by any UK public sector body including, but not limited to:

  • Schools & academies
  • Local authority establishments
  • Police & emergency services
  • NHS & HSC bodies
  • Central government departments & their agencies
  • Registered charities

The ESPO Security and Surveillance Equipment/Services Framework offers public sector bodies a quick, simple and competitively-priced way of purchasing Tensor products without having to run a full tender, as the framework is compliant with all the relevant UK/EU procurement legislation.

Prospective customers will have the peace-of-mind that Tensor is a financially stable company, whose track record, experience and technical & professional abilities are second to none.

Furthermore, they can rest assured that they’ll be obtaining the best-possible pricing for products and services – ESPO suppliers are assessed on their price and non-price credentials and only the most competitive suppliers are appointed onto the framework.

This will enable public sector buyers to choose Tensor as their access control and surveillance systems’ supplier without having to run a full tender, all while knowing that the competitive pricing and quality of our products and services is guaranteed.”
