Reading Room delivers new Government procurement portal in three-month window

A new Government procurement service portal has gone live, having been developed over a period of only 12 weeks by Reading Room.

The new site, which offers access to the Government’s Procurement framework and centralised deals, uses a Drupal 7 CMS platform which imports contracts and suppliers through from its eSourcing system to provide one centralised area.

David Burgess, managing director of Reading Room London, said: “As one of only ten suppliers on Government Procurement Service’s Web Design and Content Management Services roster, we’re really pleased to have delivered a site which makes information freely available using open source software. It’s been a really enjoyable project and we’re pleased that Government Procurement Service now has a solid platform from which to grow from in to the future.”
