Framework updates.

Agile Digital and ICT Resources Agreement (ADIRA)

The tender for the ADIRA Agreement has been evaluated and moderated. Bloom Procurement Services Ltd have been appointed as the single supplier for the provision of digital and ICT resources from a managed pool of resource providers.

The framework allows resources to be purchased via discrete, time bound Statements of Work (SoW) by public sector organisations in Wales. It provides a flexible, compliant route to access the skills and expertise required to support delivery of digital and ICT projects. Bloom will deliver the framework in partnership with Atebion Solutions.

We briefed Local Authority ICT leads about the framework at the recent September SOCITM meeting. Bloom Procurement Services Limited will be scheduling customer engagement events throughout Wales to launch the framework. Further details will be available on Sell2Wales in October.

You will also be able to meet Bloom on their stand at Procurex.

If you would like to discuss the framework or arrange a specific briefing for your organisation / sector, please contact: Paul Robertson NPSICTCategoryTeam@gov.wales
