Digital Outcomes and Specialists 7


All public sector organisations can access agile development and user-centred design services including individual Digital, Data and Technology (DDaT) specialist roles.


This is the next iteration of our current RM1043.8 Digital Outcomes 6 framework

Provides access to DDaT experts who can make custom digital products and services using an agile approach.

You can also hire space to do research with users and find users with the right qualities to test a digital product or service.

Digital Outcomes and Digital Specialists and Programmes (DSP)

Our previous Digital Outcomes 6 framework was designed to complement RM6263 Digital Specialists and Programmes.

We are currently undertaking pre-market engagement for both this framework and RM6263 Digital Specialists and Programmes. The results of this engagement will determine if the frameworks will remain separated or be combined.


  • Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) friendly
  • access a large pool of agile methodology specialists
  • access to DDaT capability
  • Government Digital Service Service Standard assured
  • flexible call-off award procedures

Product Types

We will determine the full and final list of product types when market engagement has ended. You can continue to check this page for updates.

The current RM6263 Digital Specialists and Programmes and RM1043.8 Digital Outcomes 6 frameworks provide the following lots:

DSP lot 1: Digital Programmes
Find suppliers with the full range of DDaT skills needed for a digital transformation/capability project.

DSP lot 2: Digital Specialists
Access to individual DDaT specialist roles.

DOS 6 lot 1: Digital Outcomes
Access teams of 1 or more digital specialists who will provide outcome-based services under clearly defined pieces of work.

DOS 6 lot 2: User Research Studios
Hire studio space to conduct user research.

DOS 6 lot 3: User Research Participants
Find users with the right qualities to test a digital product or service

We are looking to refine the above services and capabilities to meet user needs, as informed during engagement sessions. Engagement sessions may determine a need to combine DSP and Digital Outcomes frameworks
