Crown Commercial Services Updates Cyber Security Services Framework14 February, 2020
The Crown Commercial Services (CCS) have updated the Cyber Security Services Framework, opening it to a far wider range of companies and giving them more time.
The multitude of changes include new categories, scrapping the requirement for bidders to be certified by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), and the inclusion of a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS). This allows companies to join from the release date and throughout the life of the DPS which will be available from the 14th February 2020 to 11th February 2023. The update consists of tender worth up to £153million and companies of any size can request to bid, including those outsourcing products and services.
In January, the Government reportedly invested £1.9billion into a five-year cyber security plan, which included the update to the framework in order to provide better protection to UK public sector bodies and central government. Resellers seeking to improve their presence in the public sector can offer a holistic and competitive bid to this tender with Sigma’s vendors and services in these key areas of the Cyber Security Services:
- Consultancy and Advice
- IT Health Check
- Cyber Incident Management
