Hogg Robinson has won a competitive tender to be part
of OGCbuying.solutions' Travel Management Services Framework Agreement,
starting from March 2009.
HRG will provide a comprehensive one-stop
solution from specialist service centres covering air, rail,
hotel, meetings and events. This traditional telephone based
service will operate alongside HRG Online, an integrated
self-booking solution supported by an e-fulfilment centre based in
Liverpool, providing an all-encompassing booking and information
service for the public sector.
The tool allows potential clients
to search and book all travel and accommodation requirements from
both GDS and non-GDS sources, obtaining the best possible rates
for their individual needs.
Matthew Pancaldi, Director of
Sales for HRG UK, said, "Being part of the OGCbuying.solutions
Travel Management Services Framework highlights HRG's excellent
track record for providing corporate travel management to
government departments. I am delighted that OGCbuying.solutions
has recognised HRG's commitment to providing outstanding service
and look forward to working with various public sector bodies to
introduce innovative travel management solutions."
OGCbuying.solutions is an Executive Agency of the Office of
Government Commerce in the Treasury. The framework contracts
travel management on behalf of government departments and the
wider public sector. This enables public sector clients to bypass
lengthy tender processes required under government procurement
rules, instead selecting services from a number of pre-approved
Travel Management Companies. Prospective clients will benefit from
HRG's solutions, which ensure policy compliance, monitor traveller
security and report on corporate travel both pre and post-trip.
These services will be focused on obtaining better value for all
business travel in terms of cost, quality and service delivery.
