Find a team to provide an outcome

You can use the Digital Marketplace to find a team to work on a digital outcome, such as a booking system or an accessibility audit.

You need to write ‘requirements’ to describe the situation or problem and ask suppliers to propose a solution and provide a team.

The members of the team can’t work for you outside the scope of your written requirements.

Before you start

  1. You can talk to suppliers to prepare your requirements.
    Download list of suppliers.
  2. Get budget approval.

Write and publish your requirements

  1. Write your requirements and say how you’re going to evaluate suppliers.
  2. Publish your requirements and evaluation criteria so suppliers can apply for the work. This information will be published on the Digital Marketplace where anyone can see it.

Answer supplier questions

  1. Post all supplier questions and answers on the Digital Marketplace.

Evaluate suppliers

  1. Shortlist and evaluate supplier applications.
  2. Award a contract to the supplier that best meets your needs.

The buying process should take around 4 weeks.
