Informed Collaborate to Keep Geographic Services Procurement on Track

February 03, 2012 -- Commercial members of our industry body, the Association for Geographic Information (AGI), face a gap of unknown duration, but likely to be at least 6 months, while plans for a replacement to the Government Procurement Service (GPS) Geographic Information Services and Solutions (GISS) framework are put in place.

Informed lobbied the GPS for the Framework to be re-let on the completion of its term in mid December 2011, however this has not taken place and GPS have announced that new arrangements will be put in place later this year.  Informed believe that this could hinder progress for commercial and government Geo community members wanting to work together given the demonstrable benefits that GIS can offer in delivering ‘Better for Less’.

Informed would like to invite all AGI members who know of a client wishing to procure their services but are frustrated by the non availability of the Framework, to contact us to discuss the possibility of a partnership arrangement. Whether the member is included on the discontinued GISS Framework or not, Informed may be in a position to facilitate procurement through the Government Procurement Service Digital Continuity Framework and also the Scottish Government’s GI Framework.

In making this offer, Informed hope to lead by example and demonstrate that SMEs doing ethical and transparent business, in a professional and collaborative manner, will enable us all to build stronger more resilient businesses and improve the UK’s economic outlook.
