Research Marketplace 2
Research Marketplace DPS 2 will be a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) that will offer an extensive range of research services including market, social and economic research, and insights into communication campaigns, across all methodologies. Subject areas the research can cover will grow to include laboratory research services, and some research and development.
Research Marketplace 2 will replace RM6018 Research Marketplace which expires in February 2022.
We are holding engagement sessions with customers such as Government Communication Service Insights and Evaluation group, Government Social Research group, and the Behavioural Insights group. 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.
We have reached out to trade bodies such as the Market Research Society and the Social Research Association, and sought feedback from a survey shared with suppliers on RM6018 which will help us understand how users interact with the current system and identify opportunities for improvement.
We are running 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.
Please send us any questions, feedback or comments on this, we’d love to hear from you. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org
