New data and analytics agreement for CCS

Crown Commercial Services has announced that it has launched a new agreement for software to support the public sector’s data use.

Big data and data-driven capabilities, such as artificial intelligence, is constantly evolving and it has further come into focus across public sector organisations after the Covid-19 pandemic.

The first CCS agreement to be solely dedicated to the procurement of data, the new Big Data and Analytics agreement offers public sector organisations a ‘central route’ to the market with a range of specialist suppliers available.

The framework has been developed in accordance with the National Data Strategy and will support a variety of needs for customers, enabling them to use data more efficiently.

Commercial Director and Chief Technology Procurement Officer at Crown Commercial Service, Philip Orumwense, said:

“Data has the potential to transform our public services through enhanced productivity, helping to grow the economy.

“This new framework will support the requirements of the government and the wider public sector as they continue to use data to innovate . It is yet another example of how CCS is helping the public sector to continue on its digital transformation journey.”

A place on the framework has been awarded to 50 suppliers, with 46% of them  being small to medium sized enterprises.
