Data & Application Solutions


Corporate Software Solutions (RM1042) is due to expire in October 2018 and we are developing an innovative replacement agreement, Data and Application Solutions (RM3821). This was previously known as Enterprise Software Solutions and following market engagement has been renamed to Application Solutions. Following market engagement, the new framework will also replace Local Authority Software Applications (RM1059) which expires in August 2018. This new agreement is being developed with customers, suppliers and key stakeholders throughout our in-depth discovery process.

Customer and supplier engagement events

The Crown Commercial Service carried out webinar and face to face events during January 2018 to provide our customers and suppliers with a chance to review the final design of RM3821 Data & Application Solutions.

Data & Application Solutions has been designed to build on the legacy of Corporate Software Solutions (RM1042) and Local Authority Software Applications (RM1059). This new agreement has been developed with customers, suppliers and key stakeholders throughout our in-depth discovery and design process during the summer.

The purpose of the events was to provide details of and gather feedback on a range of topics, including:

  • Framework length
  • Permissible contract call off lengths
  • Lot scope
  • Supplier selection and award process
  • The two stage customer buying process
  • A description of the digital platform
  • Key dates for your diary including OJEU and ‘go live’ dates

These events also provided an opportunity for potential customers and suppliers to ask questions to the design team.

Please find below the materials presented during these events.   

Customer and Supplier Engagement Feedback

Please find the links to the customer and supplier feedback. Firstly there is a consolidated set of slides with the headline views and the spreadsheet shows the greater detail. Some of the pages are very detailed and you will need to zoom in to read all the comments.

Focus groups

We have held the first of our focus group webinars in September. Thank you to all who have registered and taken part. We will now collate the feedback and set up final updates prior to the OJEU release.
