Digital user-experience (UX) agency Sigma has been appointed to the government’s new ‘digital outcomes and specialists’ framework, which connects public-sector organisations with carefully-selected suppliers of digital services. The framework is part of the government’s digital marketplace, which aims to make commissioning digital and cloud services simpler, clearer, and faster.
Being included in the framework will allow Sigma to extend its user research, testing, and co-design work to new public-sector organisations. As projects of a certain size in government have to go through a recognised procurement framework, it will also allow the business to work on larger projects.
Shaun Gomm, commercial director, Sigma, said, “We’ve always worked extensively on information-rich websites, apps and digital services, and aligned ourselves closely with the Government Digital Service’s principles of openness, data-driven decision-making and agile working.”
