Framework Scope – Vertical Application Solutions

This agreement will replace Data and Applications Solutions. It will allow Public Sector customers to access software focussed solutions to meet the specific needs of their industry, business applications or services. Such as: software licences, associated hardware, app-related consultancy services, software support and maintenance.

The CCS says that the need for this framework has been heightened by the pandemic. The UK response to the global coronavirus pandemic has illustrated the benefits and necessity of software applications and the need for software solutions. The turnover of digital and tech business in the UK has reached £170 billion, an increase of £30 billion over the past five years alone. We are now at a point where the digital sector is creating jobs twice as fast as the non-digital sector. This is due to Government policies and strategies such as the UK Innovation Strategy which will aim to help UK businesses recover from financial impacts of the covid-19 pandemic through innovation and achieve its other key objectives such as achieving carbon net zero by 2050. Other policies ‘Home Office Technology Strategy’, ‘UK Digital Strategy’ and the ‘UK Innovation Strategy’ will aim to help the UK ‘Build Back Better’ and increase this turnover even further, however, Public Sector procurements such as VAS is needed to support this rapid growth within the industry.
