So says joshr (?) in a post today on the GDS blog, A supplier framework for building digital services.
"It gives government access to a competitive and wider pool of innovative suppliers, to design and build user focused digital by default services in an agile way". That's joshr's entry in the competition to get as many buzzwords as possible into a single sentence – "user focussed", "digital by default" and "agile" all in one sentence is good, but surely we can do better.
Anyway, there's going to be a Digital Services Store according to joshr on which suppliers can offer their services and government users can buy them:
But hang on a minute.
Suppliers have one place to go to apply to offer these services, and in the upcoming store, buyers will have a single place to procure. The framework will also be the first one of its kind to be supported with a managed service from Government Digital Service and Government Procurement Service.
