The second Digital Services Framework (DSF2) is scheduled to go live on Thursday 6th August 2015, following numerous delays relating to the nature of the agreement and its procurement. The tender for its replacement is due to go to market later this month.

The new  framework, which is used for “commissioning bespoke digital services and skills within the public sector”, will launch just before the first Digital Services Framework expires on the 8th August. Having been replaced by the Technology Services framework, The IT Managed Service agreement is set to expire on the 5th August.

As shown on GOV.UK,  following the DSF2 launch there will be webinars for those thinking of using the agreement. There will also be a series of regional Digital Marketplace events with the Government Digital Service and techUK throughout August and September, designed to update public sector buyers on the latest Digital Marketplace information and “share insight into the upcoming changes with G-Cloud and Digital Services”.

It has been reported that a third iteration of the framework (DSF3) is already in the process of being devised, with an OJEU expected to be published later this month as the government looks to revamp how technology is acquired in the public sector“.
