The framework agreement is for two years, which can be extended for two additional years
OpenText, a provider of enterprise content management software, has said that it has been awarded a framework agreement for Digital Continuity, developed by Buying Solutions and The National Archives in the UK as part of the government’s project to improve digital information management throughout the public sector.
The Digital Continuity Framework is part of a broader Digital Continuity Service offered by The National Archives and provides a shortlist of suppliers which can be accessed by anyone in the public sector to enable them manage their digital continuity.
OpenText has been awarded a framework agreement for two Lots: digital archiving solutions and data quality solutions.
The Digital Continuity Framework agreement is for two years, with the option to extend it for two additional one year periods.
OpenText senior account manager for central government Stephen Walsh said the UK government fully appreciates the necessity of managing digital continuity, but it’s often difficult for individual public sector organizations to know how to improve their digital information management, or how to procure technology and services that will help them do this.
The Digital Continuity Framework is an extremely welcome tool that makes it easy for the public sector to procure the tools they need to manage this mountain of digital data," Walsh said.
