After going through a lengthy application process we’re delighted to have been awarded a place on the new Digital Outcomes and Specialists 2 Framework. These should be available early in February.
We’re offering services in two categories: digital outcomes and digital specialists. This enables us to provide both individual consultants to work on a service, programme or project and teams to build and support a digital service.
DOSF2 complements the G-Cloud framework, where we already offer cloud services such as PaaS, IaaS, disaster recovery, identity management and Cloud Intermediation Services, which helps organisations plan for and manage a migration to the cloud. We’ve been on G-Cloud since the framework was launched and have been awarded a number of contracts, with particular success in IaaS – analysis in June 2016 by public sector analysis group Kable found that Fordway were as fifth in terms of total IaaS spend through G-Cloud.
The idea behind these frameworks is to help the public sector benefit from the innovation, agility and creativity of SMEs such as Fordway. The feedback we’ve had from our public sector customers shows that this is working – they love our responsiveness, flexibility and continuity of staff. It’s also enabled us to work alongside some of the largest IT contractors and we’ve been involved in some very successful collaborations.
All the services we offer through these frameworks are also available to private sector companies – just contact us directly if you’d like to discuss how we can help or explore our website.
