DLS meet the digital by default standard

Digital Life Sciences has once again been given the thumbs up by government as a supplier of agile, user-centred digital services.

We are delighted to have won a place on the Digital Services 2 (DS2) framework designed to give government easy access to suppliers with the right capability to design and build the next generation of digital public services.

To win the opportunity to work with government, Digital Life Sciences had to demonstrate it could create services that meet government’s exacting public service standards of being digital by default and meeting user needs.

Digital Life Sciences were among 170 successful suppliers from 282 applications. Over 77% of successful suppliers were small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The Digital Services framework is managed by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS), which acts on behalf of the Crown to drive savings for the taxpayer and improve the quality of commercial and procurement activity.

CCS’s procurement arrangements can be used by central government departments and organisations across the public sector including local government, health, education, not-for-profit and devolved administrations.

Keith Nurcombe, Commercial Director of Digital Life Sciences, said: “This framework enables government departments to work directly with the cutting edge digital companies who can bring lean and agile working methods to the public sector rather than looking to traditional outsourcers.

“Digital Life Sciences is delighted to have been recognised for the second time with a place on the framework and look forward to contributing to the government’s objectives of digital first public services.”
