Executive summary

This paper presents the case to source specialist design resources from the market to support a number of programmes. 

Specialist design resources are required for relatively short periods of time at the initial stages of project and programme lifecycles. To ensure design options are fully explored, it is vital that greater emphasis is placed on the design of new operating models to integrate technology, maximise productivity, deliver anticipated benefits and improve the quality of services. 

These specialist resources will provide defined design outputs and also work alongside design leads within programmes to support capability development and skills transfer. The estimated cost of this specialist resource is set out in Part 2 of this report: this cost will be more accurately tested through market engagement. 


The DMPC is asked to
1.    Note the overall scale of cost associated with the planned transformation.
2.    Approve an approach to market to source and contract specialist design resources that for Programmes 1, 2 and 3. The estimated costs of these resources are set out in Part 2.
