The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) is putting in place a framework agreement for the use of quality assurance (QA) and test delivery by UK public sector bodies.
The CCS procurement will provide access to a range of services. These include QA & test delivery ownership, QA & test analysis, test engineering, non-functional testing, integration testing, assurance and consultancy.
The RM3810 competition, for which CCS is open to bids from vendors, has a series of associated dates and deadlines. A bidder clarification webinar and briefing is due to be held on December 6; the deadline for bid questions is December 16; and the bid submission deadline is January 6 next year.
The tender follows on from work earlier in the year. In March, the Home Office outlined early aims for a possible framework agreement designed to expand quality assurance and testing services to support agile delivery methods across Whitehall for automation and tooling functions.
