Managed Print Services

A Taylor made this Freedom of Information request to Blackburn College

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Blackburn College,

Following the FOI request made in 2018 regarding Managed Print Services, I understand the previous contract with Ricoh was due to expire August 2020. Has this contract been extended or renewed given the current ongoing disruption caused by the pandemic?

If no extension and no machine refresh, is there a timeline that the college will be looking to engage with the market?

Yours faithfully,

A Taylor

Dear A Taylor


Firstly, please accept my apologies for the delay in responding. We have
checked the emails received by the Hub, but do not have a record of
receiving your original request.


In response to your Freedom of Information request, the College’s Managed
Print Services with Ricoh was extended due to the pandemic. The College
subsequently went out to tender in February 2021, with the new contract
being awarded in March 2021.


I trust this satisfies your request.


Yours sincerely


Alison Alcroft
