What this service does

The Digital Marketplace is a simple, open platform that brings government buyers and digital sellers together.

It simplifies the procurement process and makes it easier for businesses of all sizes to access government contracts.

It does this in the following ways:

  • it breaks down large-scale digital requirements (including information and communications technology) into smaller parts

  • it allows government buyers and digital sellers to sign up easily

  • it enables government buyers to search for services quickly, identify suppliers and procure the best-value option for their project
