Version 1 has been listed on the Crown Commercial Service’s Automation Marketplace DPS

Version 1 is pleased to announce that we have been appointed to the Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) Automation Marketplace Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS).

The new Automation Marketplace DPS will provide UK Central Government Bodies and the wider public sector with the opportunity to procure an extensive range of automated Services through an approved number of Suppliers. These automated services will streamline business process and systems for public sector customers.

Version 1 has been approved to supply against the following Lots;

Lot 1: Design (Strategy & Business Transformation): Understanding the opportunity, setting a strategic direction and target operating models. This filter allows buyers to build an evidence base and the sub-filters are areas to focus on.

Lot 2: Build (Problem Solving with Tech Solutions): Outcome based solutions starting with the problem rather than the technology. This filter allows buyers to pose a question to suppliers, which encourages them to put forward creative solutions combining sub filters.

Lot 4: Licence (Licences): A direct route to buy software licences where applicable. Opening up the market and encouraging direct relationships between software licence vendors and buyers, where relevant.

The benefits of the Automation Marketplace DPS include;

  • an accessible route for suppliers
  • government-specific terms and conditions
  • a dynamic filtering system
  • innovation support
  • open to all public sector buyers
  • access to the Cabinet Office (CO) automation task force.
