Research Marketplace

Crown Commercial Service (CCS) has launched Research Marketplace, a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS), which takes into account the expiry of a number of government framework agreements in 2017 and 2018 for market, social and economic research services.

The DPS has been developed following market and customer engagement that began in May 2017, which included the release of a Prior Information Notice seeking engagement from research suppliers.

Research Marketplace will provide Central Government departments and wider public sector organisations with the opportunity to procure an extensive range of research services via a comprehensive number of suppliers.

Research Services

During application to join the DPS, suppliers indicate which services they may be able to provide under the DPS. The services are organised into a matrix of filters which are sub-divided within each of the following four distinct categories:

·       Subject Area

·       Research Method

·       Specific Participant Group

·       Research Location

If you have any questions and would like to contact a member of the team, please email: researchmarketplace[at]crowncommercial.gov[dot]uk
