Bid management experts Purpol Marketing are practicing what they preach by successfully bidding and winning three places on the prestigious Digital Outcomes and Specialists 3 National Government Framework.
The Digital Marketplace helps buyers find cloud technology and specialist services for digital projects.
Digital outcomes, digital specialists and user research services will be procured through the Digital Outcomes and Specialists framework. The Digital Outcomes and Specialists services include:
• digital outcomes, for example a booking system or an accessibility audit
• digital specialists, for example a product manager or a developer
• user research participants
The framework runs as a complement to the G-Cloud – the Crown Commercial Services framework which offers buyers the opportunity to procure ICT services across different lots, enabling buyers to use specialist consultants. As the Government continues to move to one central platform for all procurement services, G-Cloud and the Digital Marketplace has received significant support from the Cabinet Office.
Purpol Marketing are delighted to have already secured 5 lots on the G-Cloud framework, thus enabling them to offer a broader spectrum of support through these government frameworks.
Buying services through frameworks is faster and cheaper than entering into individual procurement contracts. Buyers and suppliers still need to sign a contract (or ‘call-off contract’) for each service bought through a framework.
To become an approved supplier, organisations had to prove their expertise. Only consultants that understand the market and technologies with an expert level candidate network are selected.
Managing Director Denise O’Leary commented – “We are thrilled to be selected for every lot we bid for on this significant Government Digital technology framework. We have previously advised our clients how to successfully secure a place on frameworks and are delighted to add these procurement options for our clients and potential clients alongside the already secured G-Cloud 10 Framework. Much of our digital marketing and bid writing support is provided in the cloud so this is a great result for us.”
Denise continued “We help our clients to develop marketing messages and actively secure new business and we work across many sectors across the UK so it made sense to make sure we had a prominent presence on the framework as Purpol. We have put ourselves in the position to be selected from when clients are looking to use the ease of the framework to our expertise.”
