On Friday 22 September (10.00-11.00) techUK is pleased to be hosting HMRC’s Cyber Security Technical Services team for a market engagement session on the potential opportunity to deliver a suit of technical security services.

Cyber Security Technical Services (CSTS) is a deputy directorate within HMRC Security, which is responsible for provision of technical services to HMRC programmes, projects, live services and across HM Government. CSTS is responsible for building technical security capability for HMRC, through the provision of a range of cyber technical security services. CSTS currently provides these services via a hybrid resource pool, which is a combination of Crown Servants (permanent HMRC resources) and Third Party suppliers on Professional Services contracts.

CSTS needs to secure Third Party Supplier(s) to deliver its suite of technical security services across HMRC Programmes and Projects, and Digital/Live Services as well as providing technical cyber security advice and guidance to across HM Government, as part of the Government Security (GSEC) Programme. The overall goal for these contracts is to enable Cyber Security Technical Services (CSTS), and by extension HMRC Security and CDIO, to deliver cyber technical services both within HMRC and across Government. The outcomes sought under these contracts are fundamental and critical to the continued delivery of CSTS services to HMRC, to help them manage security risks appropriately, addressing known vulnerabilities, and to support the ongoing remediation of technical debt and wider HMG as part of GSEC deliverables.

The purpose of this market engagement is to alert suppliers, and provide more context, to the ITT which HMRC will be publishing in due course (subject to approvals).

Please note that HMRC will be using Crown Commercial Service’s Cyber Security Services 3 agreement for this competition. If you are a supplier* on this Dynamic Purchasing System, be sure to sign up to attend this event now.  

*Suppliers who are not on the agreement, but have an interest in potentially partnering with a CSS 3 supplier on this opportunity, are also welcome to join the session. 

Register now to attend this event.
