Framework updates for December 2023.
IT products and services (ITPS) 3
In October, we hosted stakeholder and supplier engagement events to get feedback on the high-level plans for the delivery of a replacement ITPS framework.
The scope of requirements, approach to the framework structure and evaluation of tenders, are still being developed. Stakeholders are continuing to provide insight into areas where we can grow and improve the framework, to make it sustainable and relevant for the future.
We anticipate that the tender opportunity will be published early in 2024. If you would like to be part of the evaluation process for ITPS 3, please e-mail: ICTProcurement@gov.wales
