Crown Commercial Service selects Oracle to support the UK Public Sector

By Leon Butler, Vice President Public Sector and Financial Services Key Accounts

Oracle works closely with the UK government to provide support and technical expertise to better service citizens across the country, this includes the UK Government Data Centre and cloud solutions for finance, planning, human resources and citizen experience.We are delighted to announce that Oracle has recently been awarded a place on three Crown Commercial Service’s frameworks: Software Design and Implementation Services (SDIS), Back Office Software (BOS) and Cloud Compute (RM111).

This new collaboration demonstrates our growing strength and commitment to the public sector and its ongoing period of digital transformation.

What does this mean?

Responsible for the frameworks, the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) is a procurement body that works for the UK Cabinet Office to simplify and standardise procurement routes to market, for all public sector organisations and suppliers alike.

Identified as a trusted partner to the sector, the frameworks will now allow customers to buy directly from Oracle for the first time, to better enable digital change programmes. This direct route will simplify how different government authorities can progress with digital projects to ensure that citizens, businesses and other users have a better, more coherent experience when interacting with government services.

The Frameworks

The following three frameworks will support public sector transformation in areas including strategy, architecture, design, integration of services, data migration, change management, training, and business process automation.

Ø The Back Office Software Framework (BOS): Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for back office applications including finance, human capital management and enterprise resource planning, for deploying either in the cloud, on premise or in hybrid environments.

Ø Cloud Compute Framework (RM111): Hyperscale services delivered by a public cloud delivery model, including Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), which can help businesses scale rapidly to meet change in demand.

Ø The Software Design and Implementation Services Framework (SDIS): Specialist support for implementing new cloud-based enterprise resource management planning systems and upgrading legacy IT systems.

Access to Oracle via the frameworks is available to all central government departments as well as other public sector bodies, such as local authorities, health, police, fire and rescue, education and devolved administrations.

Commitment to the UK public sector

The framework listing contributes to Oracle’s long-standing relationship with the UK government, offering technical solutions to solve real-life challenges. We currently provide the only dual-region sovereign cloud for use by UK public sector customers and works with over 800 public sector bodies, such as the Home Office, Office for National Statistics, Ministry of Defence and the NHS.

Oracle is committed to working with the UK government and we will continue to offer new solutions and services, to provide the utmost support to citizens.
