Enterprise Software Solutions

Background

Corporate Software Solutions (RM1042) is due to expire in October 2018 and we are developing an innovative replacement agreement, Enterprise Software Solutions (RM3821). Following market engagement, the new framework will also replace Local Authority Software Applications (RM1059) which expires in August 2018. This new agreement will be developed with customers, suppliers and key stakeholders through our in-depth discovery process.

Customer and supplier engagement events

 

We have conducted workshops for customers and suppliers during May and June and we are now using the feedback to develop the new framework. Thank you to all who took part, we will share the findings from the sessions once the analysis is complete. If you have any questions please contact the team at ess[at]crowncommercial.gov[dot]uk

 

Focus groups

 

We are seeking to create a diverse focus group that is representative of the full variety of suppliers and customers operating within the UK public sector technology marketplace to help advise on the further development of the framework, as we are now actively designing the new framework. We recognise that the success of the future framework lies in our ability to design a framework that is attractive to both suppliers and buyers. The focus group will be instrumental in helping ensure we keep supplier and customer needs at the heart of the framework design process.
