The National Procurement Services for Wales (NPS) are scoping an all-Wales Digital Services Framework aimed at providing their customers with a compliant route to market for a range of digital services.
This workshop, hosted by the ESTnet at the Waterton Technology Centre and led by members of the NPS will provide Welsh companies with the opportunity to:
- Discuss experiences of bidding for public sector work,
- Feed in to the scope and structure of the new Digital Framework
- Provide a valuable opportunity to raise any questions with regards to bidding for public sector work
- Receive guidance on completing tenders
- Guidance on joint bidding
The National Procurement Service (NPS) for Wales brings together public sector purchasing power of over £1bn, representing 20% to 30% of the Welsh annual expenditure in common and repetitive spend. Participating organisations include all local authorities, the NHS, Welsh Government, the Police and Fire services and Higher and Further Education. The initial work plan has been finalised in consultation with sector organisations to ensure that priorities are captured and acted upon.
The ultimate aim of the exercise is to provide a flexible agreement that will allow the Welsh Public Sector access to new technologies and niche suppliers, aiming to foster innovation and collaboration, whilst benefitting the wider Welsh economy, by providing Welsh technology companies a genuine chance to work with the Welsh Public Sector.
As a company within the technology sector in Wales we urge you to make the most of this opportunity and register your interest here today.
