The Digital Marketplace
The Digital Marketplace is an online service for public sector organisations run by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS). It enables these bodies to find both people and technology for digital projects.
CCS supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. Since the first iteration of the framework, £1.5 billion has been spent through the system and 94% of the awarded suppliers in DOS 4 are SMEs.
Crown Commercial Service supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2017/18, CCS delivered £354 million in commercial benefits including savings for central government. And £247 million for the wider public sector - helping to deliver world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.
