IMPORTANT INFORMATION: ICT Equipment Supply Severe Delays

Posted on 16/03/2020 14:47:13

Unfortunately, we are still experiencing issues with the worldwide shortage of ICT Hardware.  This issue has been compounded by Chinese New Year and the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Factories in China remain closed and with European Countries now affected, our suppliers are now advising of indefinite lead times for deliveries of equipment.  Any stock held within Europe is almost exhausted.  

We are now unable to source any equipment which would be delivered prior to Local Authority School’s financial year end and we are also finding that existing orders are affected and cannot currently confirm these will be received in time for the end of the financial year.

We will continue to explore all avenues in locating stock, but please be mindful that we are working in unprecedented times.

If you have concerns about existing orders or need further information, please contact the Service Desk on 01603 475603 or 0845 303 3003 (option 2). Alternatively, please email ictcontractsteam@norfolk.gov.uk
