DTA enhances Digital Marketplace beta

The Digital Transformation Agency has implemented changes and enhancements to the Digital Marketplace Beta based on feedback from buyers and sellers.

The Digital Marketplace — the platform for government agencies to source digital services from authorised suppliers — has been changed to give buyers more information to carry out evaluation and shortlisting.

Sellers will now be able to add text to support their response to a brief’s essential and nice-to-have criteria, and will now able to edit and personalise their company profiles.

A feature will also be tested soon that will allow sellers to create and modify a range of case studies of completed projects to attach to their profiles.

Announcing the move, Digital Marketplace team researcher Robyn Prince Gillot said the enhancements are based on feedback gathered from 10 face-to-face meetings with government buyers and 13 with registered sellers.

She said future modifications to the platform will likely involve enhancing search functionality and that the agency will continue collecting feedback to help inform the development of new features.

The Digital Marketplace launched in beta in August and had attracted 244 registered sellers and 180 buyers by late October.
