Description

The Home Office’s Data Services and Analytics (DSA) Unit intends to put in place a new £10m-£15m contract over a 2 year (+ Optional 6 months extension) term, with a single Service Provider for the provision of end-to-end Data Product Development and Associated Services across DSA’s current and future portfolio of products and customers.

DSA products are growing in their uptake and business-criticality. They are all at various stages of maturity and are becoming more reusable, with more shared code, and are becoming more able to serve multiple Home Office customers rather than single business areas. Thus, there is a need to grow and mature existing products and to build on the development work done already to deliver new products and services to the wider Home Office.

The Service Provider will be required to provide product team(s) that can deliver new products and enhance existing products. They will be proficient with cloud-based technologies, building and using data pipelines and large data sets, using Agile methodologies, and will also provide third-line support and DevOps product support.

The Home Office intends to conduct a formal Early Market Engagement (EME) event with Digital Outcomes and Specialists 5 (DoS 5) Lot 1 – Digital Outcomes Framework Suppliers.

The event will.

• Provide suppliers with an overview of the requirement, bidding process and aim to address any initial questions.

• Be held remotely via MS Teams or other similar method.

The EME event is expected to be held week commencing 25th October 2021, with a provisional date of Wednesday 27th October (PM) currently scheduled.

Framework Suppliers interested in attending should express their interest via email to Chris.Jones3@homeoffice.gov.uk by no later than Noon on Friday 22nd October 2021.
