Digital Outcomes and Specialists Framework
MDS, the assured, innovative and secure digital services company is pleased to announce that it has successfully been awarded a contract on the Digital Outcomes and Specialists Framework. We already provide professional, personalised solutions for Government, Defence, Health and Care and Genomics sectors. Our focussed teams will do the same for you.
The Digital Outcomes and Specialists framework allows Public Sector organisations to more easily receive specialist support for meeting user needs. It replaces the Digital Services 2 framework, and sits alongside G-Cloud and /404Crown Hosting in the Digital Marketplace. The framework has four categories of service, and we have successfully demonstrated our capability within the following two categories:
- Lot 1 - Digital Outcomes – is for the supply of teams to help customers build their digital service, against a defined result or outcome. We can use this framework to supply skills such as infrastructure design and reviews, application architecture services, programme and project management, and DevOps services, that will help organisations research, test, design, build, release, iterate, support or retire a digital service.
- Lot 2 - Digital Services – is for supplying individual specialists to work on a customer project. For example, we can offer our Service and Technical Architects, Project Managers and Operations Engineers through this framework to provide specialist support to customers as they work through their project. An example of an existing customer who could do this is Genomics England, where we are supporting their project with technical and project specialists that are being given specific tasks or goals to meet.
The new framework allows us to offer our experience and skill to support customers in their journey to the assured digital cloud. It is part of our core capability as we help you evolve your IT systems into flexible, modern environments that can cut costs and enable data-driven digital services. And our team of security-cleared experts will then manage them for you through G-Cloud (RM1557), meaning you can focus all your attention on providing transformational public services.
Adrian Plummer, Alliance and Product Manager for MDS, explains “we recognise the value that framework agreements such as the Digital Outcomes and Specialists framework can provide to both suppliers and customers in providing a rapid and open procurement route. We look forward to working with new and existing customers to support their digital requirements.”
