The Government’s Behavioural Insights framework was developed using the knowledge and expertise of the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) and government departments, including behavioural insights specialists across government Cabinet Office . Feedback was also received from interested suppliers via a survey and an open engagement event, advertised following the publication of a Prior Information Notice on 25 May 2017.

The estimated value of the framework is based on the aggregated potential demand of public sector buying organisations, as collated through the customer engagement process.

Information on framework, including the successful bidders, can be found on GOV.UK:
