Crown Commercial Service is the biggest procurement organisation in the UK, offering an ESourcing platform, and uses its commercial expertise to help buyers in central government and across the public and third sectors to purchase everything including specialist vehicles. The CSS provides an important role helping the UK public service save money when buying common goods and services in the interests of the taxpayers. This opens the ordering of AKFS specialist vehicle conversion to all the organisations who order specialist vehicle through the CCS Framework.

The evaluation criteria which AKFS have met covered cost, quality, delivery & customer service and added value (social value and sustainability). This opens the ordering of AKFS specialist vehicle conversion to the 78 member who order specialist vehicle through the YPO framework.
Acceptance on the YPO is another addition to the growing portfolio.
