In the past we have been lucky enough to work on a number of public sector digital projects from websites, apps to digital toolkits – mainly for local councils and the NHS. And now, we are pleased as punch to announce that Cite has been accepted onto the government’s DOS 4 framework. This is part of the Digital Marketplace, which allows public sector organisations to engage approved, best-of-breed agencies and specialists on a range of digital projects.

Cite Director, Andy Leitch, commented, “We’ve worked closely with a number of NHS organisations over the years, and really enjoyed the experience. This prompted us to apply for the framework and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to do further work in the public sector going forward.”
