Mott MacDonald has successfully secured places on two lots of G-Cloud 8, the latest iteration of the Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) framework for cloud-related services.
The CCS works with both departments and organisations across the whole of the public sector to extract maximum value from every commercial relationship and improve the quality of service delivery.
Under the framework’s Software as a Service lot, Mott MacDonald will offer its Osprey and Merlin products. Osprey is a mature suite of intelligent smart mobility and traffic management applications which are currently used in 13 major UK cities and counties. Built on proven technology, it provides cost-effective, real-time management tools for traffic managers and operations staff. Merlin is a flexible web browser-based incident, crisis and major event management tool enabling strategic collaboration between teams when co-ordinating city or event operations.
The consultancy will also provide a range of cloud services covering data management, onboarding and deployment, maintenance and support as well as business analysis and planning under the Specialist Cloud Services lot. This will offer Mott MacDonald new opportunities to help clients both understand and procure cloud services more effectively.
Alison MacKenzie, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: “Following our success on the previous G-Cloud frameworks, we've updated our Osprey and Merlin offerings in the Software as a Service Lot and enhanced our offering on the Specialist Cloud Services Lot. This framework appointment complements our commission on the government’s Digital Outcomes and Services framework from earlier this year. Both are key routes to market for technology for UK public sector clients.”
The G-Cloud 8 framework runs until the summer of 2017.
