Ironshare open for business on DOS 3 framework

Cyber security consultants Ironshare accepted into UK Government sector via ‘Digital Outcomes and Specialists 3’ framework.

Birmingham, United Kingdom: Ironshare Ltd announce their cyber security consultancy services are now available to the UK Government sector via Digital Outcomes and Specialists 3 (DOS 3).

DOS 3 is the third iteration of the government’s Digital Outcomes and Specialists framework and features four individual lots. Ironshare feature in the Digital Specialists lot, which sees suppliers “provide government departments and teams with specialists for work on a service, programme or project”.

Bidding for a place on the Crown Commercial Service framework was open from 18 July to 22 August, with services going live on the Digital Marketplace today, Monday 1st October 2018.

The framework comes with an estimated value of up to £1.2bn and will run for an initial term of 12 months – plus an optional one-year extension. Public-sector organisations can use the vehicle to award suppliers call-off contracts lasting up to 30 months in total.

“We’re committed to delivering for the UK Government sector and look forward to providing services on public sector projects. We offer great value for the taxpayer through our cost-effective offering, and being available via the DOS 3 framework makes our services more accessible for UK public service departments to procure, helping them realise benefits faster” said James Phipps, Non-Executive Chairman at Ironshare Ltd.

The public sector market for cloud products and services has been growing at about 50% a year for the last three years, and it’s believed that the rate will grow even further over the next 12 months.

The Crown Commercial Service recently revealed its expectation that, by June 2019, the annual consumption of professional services via the frameworks would reach between £1.7bn and £2bn. If this does materialise, thousands of additional skilled IT professionals are going to be engaged.

James Phipps continued, “The DOS 3 framework ensures that Ironshare can respond to the demands of UK government departments avoiding lengthy tender processes. This suits us as we’re a relatively small company but we deliver results in a fast and effective way, with the attention to detail and personal service that other larger companies sometimes struggle with.”
