Before you start you should write a list of requirements and check if you need approval to spend money on a service.


  1. 2. Export your results

    Export a list of the services you’ve found. Download suppliers’ service descriptions and contact details to help you assess services. Keep a copy for your records.


  2. 3. Start assessing services

    Follow the guidance for assessing services. Choose the one that best meets your budget and requirements.

    Do not hold a competition to decide the winner. You can contact suppliers to ask clarification questions, but you must not negotiate with them.


  3. 4. Award a contract

    Follow the guidance for awarding a contract. Check if you need to publish the details on Contracts Finder. Whether or not you award a contract, tell us the outcome. This information helps us improve the Digital Marketplace.


  4. 5. Submit a Customer Benefits Record

    You must submit a Customer Benefits Record. The Crown Commercial Service will contact you if they find any issues with the supplier.
