The Benefits of the DOS 5 Framework
The aim of the Digital Marketplace is to make the commissioning process simpler, clearer and faster. Buying and selling through the framework will:

– Reduce the time and cost traditionally associated with procurement.
– Help UK public sector organisations to find specialists who can work on digital projects.
– Allow buyers and suppliers to communicate in a more productive way.
– Enable suppliers to support digital transformation programmes across the whole of the public sector.

The Digital Marketplace is transforming the way the public sector commissions digital and cloud services, by making it simpler, clearer and faster for them to buy what they need.

Q Associates are proud of the work that we do and would love to discuss your strategic IT priorities and challenges in this rapidly changing landscape. If you would value an independent, specialist view, please give us a call 01635 248181.
