Crown Commercial Service, as the Authority, intends to put in place a multi-supplier framework agreement for the provision of major code changes to HMRC's Tax Platform. As such, this framework is only available for use by HMRC and not to any other UK public sector body.

This will be a single lot framework and is aiming to achieve a pool of suppliers with demonstrable global expertise in SAP's Tax & Revenue Management (TRM) module who have, or are willing to, invest in UK capability.

HMRC's Enterprise Tax Management Platform (ETMP) currently uses a highly customised version of the SAP ECC6.0 commercial software package and it's HMRC's intention to introduce a Multi-Supplier Framework to promote competition in delivering change.

The scope of the Framework includes 'major changes' only. Smaller changes are out of scope.

The term of the framework is a maximum of four years.
