The tender will award contracts to up to 12 different suppliers, with work covering digital platforms and infrastructure, product development and data services.
Tender documents reveal that NHS Digital is looking to appoint up to 12 suppliers to a newly formed framework, with applicants chosen for their ability to “meet the specific needs of the health and social care sector”.
This framework is intended to address “the evolving technical ‘stacks’” associated with different pillars of NHS Digital operations. These include platforms and infrastructure, product development and data services, with the roster running for a total of four years.
Digital consultancies looking to be successful in their application will need to demonstrate their understanding of the specific organisational needs of a health service, according to the contract description. And once appointed, they will be expected to develop strategic partnerships with NHS Digital which can ultimately improve and innovate on its delivery of services.
