Government, Procurement

Crown Commercial Services together with HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), have released a contract notice for the Digital and Legacy Application Services (DALAS) framework, with a purported value of up to £4.2 billion over four years.

The DALAS framework intends to provide a strategic gateway to support the delivery of future application services and move HMRC toward an application services support model that is less dependent upon legacy technologies, including the controversial Aspire tech.

The framework will provide a commercial vehicle to replace existing contractual arrangements, which are due to expire between September 2023 and January 2025, and will provide the basis for letting a large proportion of HMRC future application services requirements.

The framework will also be available to be utilised by Central Government Departments and all other UK Public Sector Bodies, including Local Authorities, Health, Police, Fire and Rescue, Education and Devolved Administrations.

The tender process will be split into phases with Phase 1 will begin in February next year. The Phase 1 contracts include consulting, software development, internet, and support, such as the integration of software lifecycle from application development through release and IT ops. Lots  in this phase also include those addressing management and support of new or existing custom applications. Also included is education on topics including DevOps, Scala, Microsoft Dynamics, and SAP. Phase 2 is due to be released between August and September 2023.
