We are pleased to announce our new Digital Outcomes and Specialists 4 (DOS4) framework is now live and open for business.
Digital Outcomes and Specialists helps public sector organisations find suppliers that can buy, design, build, test and deliver software, supporting the delivery of world-class public services that meet the needs of citizens.
There are 4 solutions available to customers: digital outcomes, digital specialists, user research studios and user research participants.
Niall Quinn, CCS Technology Director says:
‘DOS 4 will continue to help facilitate digital transformation for our customers while creating opportunities for collaboration with a wide range of suppliers. For this new version we have been able to enhance the framework and make some improvements to the Digital Marketplace in line with customer and supplier feedback, to improve their experience.’
3,475 technology companies have been handed places on the latest iteration of the framework, 94% of which are small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
Public sector organisations have so far spent £1.5bn through the 3 previous agreements, with 32% going directly to SMEs. More than £200m has been spent with micro-SMEs.
DOS4 is accessed through the Digital Marketplace, created in 2014 by CCS and Government Digital Service (GDS) to make government procurement easier and more transparent.
