Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has launched the Technology Services 3 (TS3) framework which includes over 250 suppliers
Crown Commercial Services (CCS) has awarded 253 suppliers, 64% of which are SMEs, a place on its latest Technology Services agreement.
The Technology Services 3 (TS3) framework enables customers to procure information and communication technology services across the entire lifecycle; from strategy through to transition and operational deployment.
The Lots in TS3 have been altered to make it easier for customers to procure IT services after feedback revealed that the previous security-focused sub-Lots were confusing and restrictive.
A new Service Integration and Management (SIAM) Lot has also been introduced to support customers looking to disaggregate the delivery of their technology services. Customers can manage multiple suppliers of services and integrate them to provide a single, business-facing IT organisation.
The Lots will comprise:
Lot 1 – Technology Strategy and Service Design
Lot 2 – Transition and Transformation
Lot 3a – End User Services
Lot 3b – Operational Management
Lot 3c – Technical Management
Lot 3d – Application and Data Management
Lot 4 – Major Service Transformation Programmes
Lot 5 – Service Integration and Management
Philip Orumwense, Commercial Director and Chief Technology Procurement Officer, Crown Commercial Service says:
“Technology Services 3 has been designed and developed using an extensive discovery and consultative process with many of our customers, suppliers, and partners. This framework truly reflects and represents their expectations and provides the platform for the country to build back better with the right mix of quality and innovative suppliers, including SME providers.
“This is another example of how CCS is putting customers at the heart of everything we do to help support the public sector to continue on its digital transformation journey.”
