ICT Managed Services

Gillotts School, located in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, is a reputable educational institution serving the local community. The school is committed to providing students with a high-quality learning environment and needed to update its ICT managed services to meet modern educational demands.

The Background

Gillotts School recognised the need to upgrade its ICT infrastructure to enhance teaching and learning experiences. Their existing systems were outdated, leading to inefficiencies and barriers in the education process. To address these issues, the school initiated a procurement project for ICT infrastructure themselves with their ICT Managed Services tender being supported by Minerva Procurement Consultancy Services.

A full restricted tender process was conducted as per Public Contract Regulations (PCR2015) which included a Selection Questionnaire (SQ) and Invitation to Tender (ITT) stage.


Gillotts School launched a competitive tender process, inviting prospective ICT managed service providers to submit their proposals. Several vendors participated in the bidding process, each aiming to meet the school’s ICT needs.

After a rigorous evaluation of the proposals and rigorous selection criteria, the school selected a trusted partner to provide ICT Managed Services. The chosen provider demonstrated not only technical excellence but also a commitment to aligning their services with the school’s educational goals.

With the new ICT Managed Services in place, Gillotts School gained several key benefits:

  • Enhanced Learning: The upgraded ICT infrastructure allowed teachers to integrate technology seamlessly into their lessons, enhancing the overall learning experience for students.
  • Efficiency and Reliability: The new services improved the efficiency and reliability of the school’s network, reducing downtime and disruptions.
  • Cost Savings: The procurement process led to cost-effective solutions that offered better value for the school’s budget.
  • Long-term Partnership: The chosen ICT managed service provider established a strong partnership with Gillotts School, providing ongoing support and maintenance

Customer Feedback

We were very impressed by the quality of service provided by Minerva. This applied to every stage of the process – helping us to come to an informed, evidence based decision regarding the award of the tender. We were made clear, at every stage of the process, where we had got to and what was required of us. A huge thank you to the Minerva team.
