Glider awarded prestigious Digital Outcomes 6 contract

This is yet another remarkable achievement for Glider, as the information management and software specialist is awarded the Digital Outcomes 6 (RM 1043.8) contract, commencing on 10 August 2022.

The Crown Commercial Service, as the contracting authority has put in place a pan-government collaborative framework agreement for use by UK-based public sector organisations with Digital, Data and Technology (DDaT) roles, and end-to-end digital transformation programmes, and has elected Glider as a supplier.

The new framework Digital Specialists & Programmes (RM6263) will be utilised by Central Government Departments, as well as all other public sector bodies, including local authorities, health, police, fire, rescue, education and the devolved administrations, to find a full range of Digital Data and Technology (DDaT) skills. The agreement offers a quality assured route. Therefore, it will provide larger digital transformation and larger capability programmes, as well as a route to market for strategic objectives or scope of services with no clearly defined outcomes or deliverables that will enable digital transformation.

Stuart Bell, Director of Sales & Marketing at Glider, commented on the awarded contract: “This is another milestone that recognises Glider’s exceptional digital capabilites. We are honoured to have secured a position on another public sector framework, in addition to our existing G-Cloud Digital 12 Marketplace contracts with clients such as the Ministry of Defence (MOD), British Antarctic Surveys (BAS)and the National Health Service (NHS). I would like to say thank you to the whole team for their hard work in achieving this high-status contract”.

Digital outcomes suppliers can help research, test, design, build, release, iterate, support or retire a digital service. Suppliers must comply with the government Technology Code of Practice, which sets out mandatory practices such as using open source technology, making privacy integral and integrating the technology within the organisations infrastructure, and adapting it to future demands.

Digital outcomes suppliers must also understand what it means to work on one of the Discovery, Beta, Live or Retirement phases, comply with successful Service Standard assessments, ensure that services are interoperable, and comply with adopted open standards as per government mandates.

Stuart Bell continued: “The process of attaining a government contract is highly rigorous, so the fact that Glider is compliant with these criteria is a testament to our high standard of data security, interoperability, accessibility and integration. We believe in creating a sustainable, digitally powered built environment, and are well-positioned to help our public sector clients manage their built asset information.”
