We are committed to being open and transparent about how we are procuring the federated data platform and associated services for the NHS. We will keep this page up to date throughout the procurement process.

The contract notice and standard selection questionnaire was published on 10 January 2023.  Participants that passed the standard selection questionnaire moved to Stage 2 of the procurement and were required to submit outline solutions for evaluation by 3 April 2023.

Following evaluation of initial solutions, NHS England have shortlisted the three highest scoring participants and invited them to participate in dialogue with NHS England before proceeding to the next stages of the procurement process.

We are working towards  Autumn 2023 for the contract award.
