Government Digital Service (GDS)

Outcome of Expression of Interest: Invited to apply


Carry out an 8-week discovery (estimated £80k cost, delivered as an outcome commissioned via the Digital Marketplace) to identify:

  • broader users’ needs across the UK’s local government sector, for:
    • building digital commercial, procurement and contract / supplier relationship management capability
    • supporting successful collaborative delivery throughout the end-to-end lifecycle of digital, data and technology
  • how much of this can be commodified, to provide patterns and approaches that scale
  • potential scope and activities for a follow-up alpha


The work of CCS, with support from GDS, to develop and grow a newly established digital buying community, directly supports two fundamental objectives and priorities set out as part of the Government Transformation Strategy:

The Technology Code of Practice, Digital Marketplace and associated CCS commercial agreements, Digital (Government) Service Standard, and capability / capacity building efforts, are collectively central to this transformation, as well as the Local Digital Declaration.
