Aims to extend use of existing publishing platform by end of October this year
The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) is aiming to extend the range of e-notices it makes available for public sector organisations.
It has begun a search for support in developing a new service on its existing platform to support a significant number of new types of notice.
While it currently provides a platform for notices largely around procurement, it has indicated in its own Digital Marketplace notice that it wants to help public authorities publish e-notices to meet legal and policy obligations.
Among the requirements is that users can find notices on current and new services easily through online search, dashboards and data outputs, and that they should be registered through a pre-existing system.
It is aiming to complete the work over the next six months, although it is offering potential contractors a deal that includes maintenance for the next 18 months and is valued at £4 million.
