Digital Marketplace — Beta reassessment
The Digital Marketplace simplifies the process of government procurement and makes it easier for businesses of all sizes to access government contracts.
The service did not pass their first Beta assessment because accessibility issues may have prevented some users from accessing the service. The service team took on this feedback and worked extensively to improve support for all users. The service has now passed their Beta assessment.
