This agreement complements the future version of DOS (Digital Outcomes and Specialists), RM1043.8 Digital Outcomes 6. Lot 2 for specialists won’t be available from RM1043.8.
You can use this agreement to find people with the full range of Digital, Data and Technology (DDaT) skills needed for a digital transformation/capability project, or to supply individual DDaT staff to work as part of an existing team or new team you’re setting up.
A digital transformation project might include redesigning an existing service, or designing a whole new service for your users or your internal teams, for example. It may involve rethinking about how an organisation could use technology, people or processes to create new business models or new revenue streams for the organisation (for example, building mobile applications or ecommerce platforms)
You might want to hire staff with DDaT skills to integrate into your organisation and help to achieve strategic objectives through a single project or multiple projects that may involve user research, design or building and supporting the service, for example.
You may also need DDaT staff for any strategic objectives or scope of services that have no clearly defined outcomes or deliverables that will enable digital transformation.
Products and services that are out of scope include (but are not limited to):
- standalone hosting, support and maintenance of a live application or website
- supplementing a temporary shortfall in staff with no clear deliverables (who might work across projects under the direction of the buyer)
- any non-DDaT role
It is important to remember that this agreement should not be used to staff interim or contingent labour. The following CCS agreements are available if you need management consultancy or interim staff:
- Public Sector Resourcing
- Management Consultancy Framework 3
- Non Clinical Temporary and Fixed Term Staff
Buyers can find teams of digital specialists based on Digital, Data and Technology (DDaT) role definitions that meet the skills and competencies in the Skills Framework for the Information Age (SFIA).
