New year, new and innovative software framework coming soon

As you may be aware, our new Data and Application Solutions (DAS) framework is set to launch this year to provide a wide range of software services and ancillary hardware.

This includes a number of sector specific lots to ensure it meet the needs of the entire public sector.

We have been busy ensuring that DAS, which is the replacement for our previous Local Authority Software Applications and Corporate Software Solutions agreements, attracts the right range of suppliers across all 14 Lots.

The good news is that we are in the final stages of the competition and are aiming to go live with the framework at the end of February.

Our first webinar will be held Thursday 7th February at 14:30 and will explain how the agreement works and the differences between this and our other relevant live agreements – make sure you register for the webinar so you can hear all about it.

If you are interested in helping to ensure that the customer guidance documentation we issue meets your expectations, please contact us at info@crowncommercial.gov.uk with the subject line “RM3821 customer guidance” and we’ll contact you with details about how you can get involved.

Look out for more detailed information about the new framework shortly.
