Scope of the framework
• Lot 1 - Intelligent Automation Services
Allows organisations to procure intelligent automation services from consultancy and implementation to on-going support. It is designed for organisations who require the expertise and specialist support from intelligent automation service providers to set up and implement an in-house intelligent automation service for their organisation, with the end goal being to transfer the day-to-day running of intelligent automation back to the organisation.
• Lot 2 - Intelligent Automation Software & Licensing
Allows organisations to procure 'off the shelf' intelligent automation software and licensing direct from software vendor suppliers. This lot is designed for organisations who are building or already have an established in-house intelligent automation function but require a compliant contractual route to purchase further intelligent automation software, solutions and licenses.
• Lot 3 - Intelligent Automation as a Service (IAaaS)
This is an outcome based, managed service solution whereby organisations can fully outsource their intelligent automation requirements to a third-party service provider. This lot is designed to make intelligent automation more accessible to organisations by allowing them to procure on an entirely outcome based/service consumption based, fixed price-per-process operating and commercial subscription model. It is designed for organisations who want to completely outsource the day-to-day running of an intelligent automation service and solution.
