Research Marketplace 2
Research Marketplace 2 will be a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) that will offer n extensive range of research services including market, social and economic research, behavioural insights, resilience testing, research and development and clinical testing, across all methodologies. The services this DPS will offer may grow as we continue to speak to customers, suppliers and stakeholders.
Research Marketplace 2 will replace RM6018 Research Marketplace which expires in February 2022.
We are holding engagement sessions with customers like the Government Communication Service Insights and Evaluation group, Government Social Research group, the Market Research Society and the Social Research Association. We have also issued a survey to get feedback on the current agreement to ensure we set up a best-in-class DPS agreement for our customers.
Feedback from a survey shared with suppliers on RM6018 will help us understand how users interact with the current system and identify opportunities for improvement.
We will also run supplier engagement sessions with all suppliers currently on RM6018 as well as those that have expressed an interest by way of our published PIN, to share information and shape the replacement DPS.
Future sessions, webinars and additional information like Q&A documents will be published on this page.
If you have an interest and would like to be involved or provide feedback please get in touch with the team.
