Background

This framework was developed to give all public sector organisations access to suppliers of technology services, such as: technology strategy, service design, transition and transformation and operational services.

This framework was designed to service the smallest of IT needs from replacing and managing a small desktop computer estate to the replacement of larger and more critical central government systems, both at the Government’s Official, Secret and Top Secret security classifications. This framework has also been developed as an enabler for the disaggregation of larger government contracts that have been in place for some time.

In preparation for the procurement of Technology Services 2 extensive pre-market engagement was undertaken between August and December 2016. Over 80 suppliers and 90 buying organisations were involved in shaping and improving on our previous framework agreement. After 5 months of focused workshops covering the scope and structure of the framework agreement and the terms and conditions, Technology Services 2 went to competitive OJEU procurement in March 2017.

By listening to the market and you, our customers, Technology Services 2 has been re-designed and restructured to satisfy your needs. Following our evaluation process we are confident we feature the right mix of quality tested suppliers, to provide all of your technology services needs.
