CCS aims to unleash the power of data with new framework

CCS logoCrown Commercial Service (CCS) has launched its new Big Data & Analytics (BDandA) framework (RM6195). The agreement is intended to provide public sector organisations with access to both bespoke professional services and commercial off the shelf (COTS) software specific to data and analytics.

The framework opened for tenders in November last year (see CCS opens Big Data & Analytics framework). It joins a list of targeted technology frameworks introduced by CCS over the last two years, such as the Artificial Intelligence DPS (Dynamic Purchasing System), Automation Marketplace DPS and Cloud Compute framework. Future frameworks in the pipeline include Digital & Legacy Application Services (DALAS) and Vertical Application Solutions

The new framework is divided into two lots. Lot 1 – ‘Design, build and run’ professional services, covers advanced analytics and cognitive; data management & acquisition; data risking; platforms services; reporting and dashboards; and search and discovery services. Lot 2 – COTS software, covers big data management; machine learning & artificial intelligence; reporting & analytics; data mining, risking & science; search and data discovery.

In total, 50 suppliers have been awarded a place on the framework, with 29 on Lot 1 and 26 on Lot 2. Six suppliers (Accenture, Atos, CACI, Civica, Faculty, and Methods) have been awarded a place on both lots. The agreement will run for two years, with an option to extend by two one-year periods, with a maximum call off length of five years.

The framework was developed in line with the National Data Strategy, which was launched in May last year with the intention of removing the barriers to better data use and unleashing the power of data across the whole of the economy and society (see National Data Strategy: From risk to opportunity).
