Helping you to get on the right IT Frameworks for you business

Over recent years we have seen major advancements in technology as the world strives to become more connected than ever before – a trend that was accelerated by the Coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic not only caused a cultural shift in the way we work, live, communicate and travel, but also forced the Government to address, protect and improve the critical systems that we rely so heavily on.

In 2020/21 Government spend on Public Sector procurement hit £357 billion across the UK, an increase of 17% on the previous year and going forward, the Government will be investing £2.6bn in Cyber and Legacy IT over the next 3 years in addition to the £22bn National Cyber Strategy.

With opportunities for IT Government contracts increasing, GovData work closely with you and your teams throughout every step of the process to ensure that you get on the most critical frameworks such as “Cyber Security Services, IT Consult and NS3. At GovData we are proud to have helped our clients win over £37 Billion in Public Sector contracts

Key information when applying for Public Sector IT and Technology Frameworks


GovData are world leaders in Public Sector procurement, we’ve worked inside and alongside Public Sector procurement bodies including Crown Commercial Services, and NHS Shared Business Services for over 20 years giving our team and clients unparalleled insight into what a great bid looks like and more importantly why bids succeed and fail.

The Public Sector IT framework opportunity is huge with over £2.6bn being invested in cyber and IT over the next 3 years which prioritises investing in the UK’s cyber skills, improving cyber security responses and disrupting state-backed cyberattacks, in addition to the £22bn National Cyber Security Strategy.

GovData has helped many businesses successfully get on the correct frameworks needed to be invited to tender for multi-million-pound Public Sector contracts. Strategically designed to level the playing field for all Technology organisations, frameworks such as Network Services 3 (NS3) or Virtual Application Solutions are structured by LOTs (services) to align the right suppliers with the needs of the government. Frameworks like these mean that the contracts are often awarded to more than one organisation based on the services required. There’s no limit to the number of lots your business can apply, though there can be some restrictions depending on the framework, bear in mind that you’ll need to be able to demonstrate credibility and capability for each one.

For example, with G-Cloud 13 a framework designed to help customers in the UK Public Sector to purchase cloud-based computing services (preferably from SMEs) such as hosting software and cloud support, is made up of 4 lots, each of which focuses on a different area of the cloud. Meaning that there are at least 4 suppliers as part of this contract, often with multiple suppliers per lot to ensure the government is ensuring value for money from our public services. (there are over 5,000 suppliers on G-Cloud and over 38,000 services available).

Once approved and awarded a successful framework position your business is now eligible to supply solutions and services directly to the bodies included. With a clear mandate for all purchasing to be completed through approved frameworks, a successful framework award can create huge opportunities for growth.

Cyber Security Services 3 framework


Recent research shows that 82% of framework submissions fail when they’re self-submitted – not because the company is wrong for the contract but typically a combination of technical documents, mis-matched answers, missed deadlines or a combination of all of these things. Creating a winning framework application takes time, experience and an inherent knowledge of the key scoring criteria that awarding bodies are looking for. At GovData our experienced team help businesses break through the barriers to entry and create effective, winning submissions week in, week out.

Network Services 3 Procurement Framework


In 2021 alone the UK Government spending on Public Sector procurement including Bids and Tenders reached £357 Billion, an increase of 17% on the year prior. This expenditure is set to remain at significant levels across 2022 and beyond as UK’s Public Sector looks to speed up, simplify and transform the public procurement process in line with a broader levelling up agenda.

As part of the SME Agenda, the UK Government has been clear and transparent in their ambition to ensure the growth of SMEs, requiring that by law 33% of all public spending must be with SMEs. However, on technology frameworks this figure is much higher with 50% of all budgets to be spent with SMEs.
