answer text <blockquote>There is no specific framework that government uses to decide whether a digital project should be completed in-house or contracted out.</blockquote><blockquote> </blockquote><blockquote>Government uses the principles of the HMT Green Book guidance, supplementary guidance (such as the <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-green-book-appraisal-and-evaluation-in-central-governent/agile-digital-and-it-projects-clarification-of-business-case-guidance" target="_blank">Agile digital and IT projects</a>), and the 5 case model to scrutinise the costs and benefits of different options to deliver a particular project, including management, commercial and financial aspects. When relevant, some of these options may refer to in-house provision whereas others may refer to outsourcing.</blockquote><blockquote> </blockquote><blockquote>The preferred option will be selected on the basis of value for money and capacity to meet the project objectives.</blockquote> more like this

answer text <p>Cross-government standards exist to ensure best use of taxpayer money on IT projects, including Commercial Operating Standards and Technology Code of Practice. These were both reiterated in light of public consultation which included trade bodies. The use of these standards is assured through the IT and commercial spend controls operated by Cabinet Office.</p><p>The updated Commercial Operating Standards (published on GOV.UK) define how all government departments should operate commercially to ensure strong commercial behaviours and getting value for money. Point 5 of this standard focuses on maximising competition by engaging with the market early, and designing service requirements that are accessible to as many suppliers as possible.</p><p> </p> more like this
