Should I apply for TS3?
This is down to your circumstances. The application is thorough and competitive. So you’ll want to make sure you’ve got the time and resources to put in the required effort. It’s also about weighing up the pros and cons of being on the framework. It’s not a source of inbound leads by any means, so you’ll need to ask yourself if you can incorporate it into your public sector strategy. Here’s why we think suppliers should consider it, but each company may be different.
How do I get started?
Make sure you’ve got everything ready and you’re fully equipped to get going. We’ve spoken before about how Technology Services 3 is going to be a lot more competitive than its predecessors, so you’ll want all hands on deck. This is because you might need input from different departments within your company to get all the info you need. In this blog we broke down how you can get ready for applying, so do have a read through!
