Cath Rooney talks about how we've been applying the GDS design principles to government procurement.

User feedback is an essential part of our work to improve Digital Marketplace for both buyers and suppliers. In our last post, we spoke about some of the things we’ve already done for our users to help make things better.
We've been continuously improving the Digital Outcomes and Specialists framework since it arrived on the Digital Marketplace in April.
Suppliers who applied to supply their services through G-Cloud 8 (G8) will find out the result of their application by the end of the day today.
Since the ‘earliest usable product’ of the Digital Outcomes and Specialists buying journey went live at the end of April, over 110 opportunities for work in the public sector have been published on the Digital Marketplace.
Since Digital Outcomes and Specialists services became available on 27 April, we’ve been gathering and prioritising feedback from users.
We'll be turning off the Digital Services Store on 5 July 2016.
Since first building a ‘service submission portal’ for G-Cloud 6, our aim has been to move the Digital Marketplace away from being a simple catalogue of services, to being a platform that can handle supplier applications and multiple frameworks.
