Integrated Digital Service (IDS) currently has a Framework Agreement in place Temporary ICT Staff Framework – for the supply of ICT resource, which came into effect on 14/01/2020 and will run until 13/01/2024. There are 6 approved recruitment agencies on the Framework.

A number of legacy contractors continue to be supplied through agencies on a previous framework (DN189804)and we request approval to continue with these contractors until their skills are no longer required.

Also, if required, source suitably qualified and experienced ICT resource where these cannot be provided by the suppliers on the Temporary ICT Staff Framework.
