Sogeti Services Available on the Crown Commercial Service QA Framework

Sogeti UK has been awarded the framework agreement for seven of the eight lots available on the Crown Commercial Service Quality Assurance and Testing for IT Systems Framework.

London, UK – 22nd June 2017 - Sogeti UK, a leading provider of technology and engineering services, announced today that its Quality Assurance and Testing services are now available on the new Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Quality Assurance (QA) and Testing for IT Systems framework agreement.

The Home Office’s Test, Design and Consultancy services (TDCS) expired on 31st March 2017, and it has now been replaced by the CCS “Quality Assurance (QA) and Testing for IT Systems” framework agreement. This agreement supports the Government’s policy to centrally manage the procurement of common goods and services through an integrated commercial function at the heart of government. It provides easy access for certain UK public sector bodies to purchase a variety of quality assurance and testing services, and it offers a new central route for suppliers who have signed up to the framework to provide these services.

This new framework will exist in tandem and complement other cloud and digital agreements including G-Cloud, Digital Outcomes & Specialist, and Cyber Security Services.

Sogeti UK has been awarded the framework agreement for seven of the eight lots available: Lot 1: QA & Testing Specialists, Lot 2: Automation, Agile & Dev-Ops, Lot 3: Load & Performance Testing, Lot 4: Functional Testing, Lot 5: Infrastructure Testing and Environments, Lot 7: QA & Testing Management, and Lot 8: Strategic QA Consultancy. Sogeti UK’s software testing and quality assurance services are now available on this framework. Sogeti UK will also be the primary point of contact for all enquiries relating to testing services delivered under this new framework in alliance with its sister company, Capgemini UK plc.

Gary Moore, Testing Services Practice Leader for Sogeti UK, said: “The development of a new framework like this raises the importance of and highlights the desire to purchase specialist testing and QA services. The government is clearly committed to executing its current digital strategy and mitigating the risks brought about by digital transformation. Our latest World Quality Reportshows that Public Sector is increasingly allocating a bigger proportion of its overall IT budget to testing, which has risen from 25% to 33% in 2015-2016 and this is expected to reach 40% by 2018. So the introduction of this dedicated framework is very timely, and we are thrilled to be a part of this new initiative.” 

Yannis Kafantaris, Head of Sales - Public Sector for Sogeti UK, added: “The recently published UK Government Digital Strategy mentions that ‘the UK has led the world in transforming its public services and systems, using digital technology to make them easier, simpler and cheaper’. The end-to-end provision of agile and digital assurance skills and expertise is of paramount importance in continuing with the Government’s digital transformation journey. Sogeti UK has a deep understanding of all digital assurance challenges and it goes further by focusing on real and relevant business outcomes. I am delighted that Sogeti UK is a part of this important new framework and genuinely pleased we are able to offer our services through the CCS agreement.”
