Quality Assurance and Testing for IT Systems 2


The framework will use a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) to offer independent quality assurance testing (QAT) services for use by the whole of the public sector and their associated bodies and agencies. QAT is needed for new digital systems and services to make sure they are suitable for public launch. It will replace Quality Assurance and Testing for IT Systems RM3810 which is due to expire on 24 March 2020.

The agreement will offer the following services:

  • testing environments
  • specialists
  • automation
  • services (such as consultancy)

The new agreement is being developed with the Home Office who currently use the existing agreement for their internal, shared, managed QAT service. Home Office also support a number of other central government departments through the provision of their managed QAT service.
