GDS awards £25m Common Technology Services revamp contracts

The Government Digital Service (GDS) has awarded contracts worth £25m in a bid to revamp Common Technology Services (CTS).

The Government Digital Service (GDS) has awarded contracts worth £25m in a bid to revamp Common Technology Services (CTS).

The investment is to be used for strategy, testing, commercial exit framework services and application cloud and infrastructure design services to support CTS. Those awarded contracts include PwC, Zeefix Consulting, DMSG, Methods Digital, M4 Managed Services and Computing Distribution Group.

PwC has been chosen to deliver commercial exit framework services in a £4m deal that will see it collect all contract and commercial ICT information across government. It will then analyse the data captured to identify which commercial agreements need to be terminated and where departments need to be transformed.

CTS looks to support government digital transformation by designing IT that meets cross government tech needs, enabling collaboration and cost savings.

Elsewhere, Zeefix Consulting has won the £2m contract to look after quality and testing services, Methods Digital (£2m) will provide strategy services to define the strategy of CTS and support collating and analysing commercial ICT information across HMG, and Computing Distribution Group (£5m), along with M4 Managed Services (£5m), have been signed up to provide the design of service delivery, infrastructure and tools for CTS, as well as supporting cloud infrastructure technology.

Ergon has been awarded a £2m contract for a contained and packaged agile programme management office service and Entech will earn £325,000 by providing a technology leadership service, to provide technical guidance and leadership to CTS’s technical services team.

Earlier this year GDS provided a sneak preview of its strategy for the year ahead.
