Third Digital Outcomes and Specialists framework launches

Our Digital Outcomes and Specialists 3 (DOS3) framework is now open for business and ready to help public sector organisations find suppliers that can buy, design, build, test and deliver software.Solutions available on the framework are:

  • Digital outcomes
  • Digital specialists
  • User research studios
  • User research participants

2,953 suppliers – 94% of them SMEs – have been awarded places on the new agreement. Around £500 million has been spent through the framework since its inception, with over £198 million going to SMEs.

DOS3 will support new companies to supply the public sector, while also giving current suppliers the opportunity to update their service offer and pricing.

The success of DOS2 was built on creating a Community of Practice, called the digital buying community, to help share best practice to clearly define problems and this will continue to be built on with DOS3.

DOS3 is accessed through the Digital Marketplace, created in 2014 by CCS and Government Digital Service (GDS) to make government procurement easier and more transparent.

To find out more about DOS3, you can visit the Digital Marketplace, or if you have a specific question simply complete our form and one of our technology experts will be in touch.
