New user interface for eTenderWales
In March, a major Jaggaer release 22.1 will be implemented on eTenderWales which will improve the user experience and interface. The release will not change the underlying functionality of eTenderWales. Further information is available here.
Transparency and open contracting data standard (OCDS)
We are working on the Wales procurement policy note to support the introduction of transparency as part of our implementation of the OCDS. We will update customers as we progress through the drafting process.
Pipeline planning and policy mapping tools
We will shortly be hosting user research sessions to assist with work relating to the digital action plan. Specifically, this will be around improving the visibility of our procurement pipelines, and improving how we map and report policy outcomes.
We will be building 2 prototypes to demonstrate the potential functionality of pipeline planning and policy mapping. These prototypes will be used during user research sessions to gather feedback for the final specification.
