Savant is now listed on the Digital Marketplace under the Digital Outcomes and Specialists category.
Digital Outcomes lists suppliers who can provide teams to build and support a digital service. For example, a digital outcome could be a discovery phase to create an information systems vision of an NHS department.
Digital Specialists lists suppliers who can provide individual specialists to deliver a specific outcome with defined deliverables on a service, programme or project.
The aim of the Digital Marketplace is to make the commissioning process simpler, clearer and faster. Buying and selling through the Digital Outcomes and Specialists framework will:
- reduce the time and cost traditionally associated with procurement
- allow buyers and suppliers to talk to each other so they can decide whether there is a good fit
- give more suppliers the opportunity to support digital transformation across the whole of the public sector
All public sector organisations, including agencies and arm’s length bodies, can use the Digital Marketplace to find and buy cloud based services, specialists who can work on digital projects and physical data centre space.
The Digital Marketplace can be accessed here and will be available for users to buy and sell services from mid April 2016.
