Sungard Availability Services (Sungard AS) has been named as a supplier on the new Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) Technology Services 3 (TS3) RM6100 framework, extending how UK public sector organisations can procure cost-effective services and expertise from recognised suppliers.
CCS supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2019/20, it helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits worth over £1bn – supporting world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers. TS3 is the latest iteration of the highly successful Technology Services 2 framework for central government departments, non-departmental public bodies, NHS bodies and local authorities in the UK, covering ICT services from strategy to transition and operational deployment.
Sungard AS has long been established within the UK public sector Crown Commercial Digital Marketplace, appearing on past frameworks for multiple G-Cloud iterations (5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and most recently 12) and DOS releases (3, 4, and most recently 5).
On the TS3 framework, public sector departments will be able to access the company’s extensive IT services portfolio for terms of up to 5 years and beyond via the following Lots:
- Lot 3a: End User Services
- Lot 3b: Operational Management
- Lot 3c: Technical Management
- Lot 3d: Application & Data Management
“We are thrilled to be able to continue our commitment to UK public sector services on this new framework,” comments Chris Huggett, SVP EMEA, Sungard AS. “TS3 will be the third major framework of its kind Sungard AS is now a part of in the UK, demonstrating our sustained commitment to organisations in the sector. As service offerings continue to evolve and adapt to the challenges the country faces, we are proud to be able to support in the delivery of government critical systems to keep the UK resilient, available and connected.”
“Technology Services 3 has been designed and developed using an extensive discovery and consultative process with many of our customers, suppliers, and partners,” states Philip Orumwense, Commercial Director and Chief Technology Procurement Officer, Crown Commercial Service. “This framework truly reflects and represents their expectations and provides the platform for the country to build back better with the right mix of quality and innovative suppliers, including SME providers. This is another example of how CCS is putting customers at the heart of everything we do to help support the public sector to continue on its digital transformation journey.”
