Have you recently done business with a seller who offers emerging technology, an exciting service, or you believe they would add value to other buyers? You can encourage the seller to join the Digital Marketplace.
Signing up and being assessed
All opportunities on the Marketplace require sellers to be assessed and approved to offer services in each category they are responding to.
If the seller you're inviting is not currently assessed and approved, you'll first need to ask them to sign up to the Marketplace if they haven't already. If they are currently signed up but haven't been assessed, they will need to request an assessment.
The seller in the following example, is approved to offer services in the categories of 'Software engineering and Development' and 'Training, Learning and Development'.
What happens after a seller signs up?
If we approve a seller application, they will first be listed as a registered seller in the seller catalogue. Following this, they must still be assessed and approved to offer services in the category that your opportunity is listed under.
How long will the process take?
We aim to review and assess initial applications in approximately 10 business days. This may take longer if we receive many applications at the same time, or if information is missing or misspelt.
Following this, the seller is assessed for value for money. This stage of the assessment process will be dependant on the seller's response and how well they demonstrated that their services offer value for money.
You should allow at least 3-4 weeks for the entire assessment process to be completed.
