Finding a team to provide an outcome

To find a digital outcome, eg a booking system or an accessibility audit, you need to tell sellers about the situation or problem. They’ll then propose a solution to meet your needs.

Step 1. Research, write and publish your brief

As part of your research remember you can contact sellers for their input. Then, once you have budget approval, write and publish your brief. When you’re ready to start, click the Create Brief button.

Step 2. Respond to seller questions

After publishing your brief, sellers may ask questions via email. You must respond to their questions by posting the question and your answer at the bottom of your brief, so all potential applicants can see the information.

Step 3. Evaluate applicants and award a contract

After your brief closes, evaluate the applicants using the criteria you set when creating the brief and award the contract to the applicant who best meets your needs and represents value for money.
