The aims of the Crown Marketplace remain the same. As the test phase is now over, Crown Commercial Service has carefully considered how the programme should be taken forward. Whilst they have decided not to proceed with a procurement of a replacement e-purchasing platform at this stage, they expect to invest more in the Crown Marketplace in this financial year than ever before and are planning to launch up to 10 new digital solutions in the near future to help customers access deals for common goods and services more easily and get value for money for the taxpayer.
