After my last post on being named one of the new “supplier stars” for the public sector technology market, I am pleased to announce that Equal Experts has just been awarded a place on the Digital Services Framework 2 (DSF2) by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS).
Our award-winning services in agile software engineering, web operations, user experience and embedding agile practices will now be added to the Digital Marketplace – the online platform that all public sector organisations can use to find and buy cloud-based services and which currently houses services from three frameworks: Digital Services, G-Cloud and Crown Hosting. We are very supportive of the Government Digital Service Digital by Default strategy that has enabled this approach, especially now that Digital Services is the mandated route for bespoke application development services.
The Digital Marketplace encourages a market that contains the right range of products and services to transform the way in which the public sector delivers technology, and the right people to implement them, at the most competitive price.
To date, under G-Cloud, we have helped HMRC to deliver their Multi-Channel Digital Tax Platform (MDTP), and have delivered the award-winning UKVI Online Application service for the Home Office, providing a more intuitive, easy to use, online process to apply for a UK visa from the UK and abroad.
This is what you call digital transformation at its best.
