The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has put out a call for a strategic supply partner to assist with its digital transformation programme over the next couple of years.

A statement explained that it has already carried out an expert review on its data management practices, focusing on its use of data and Microsoft software.

This identified issues including the need for manual manipulation of data in many daily tasks, compounded by siloed working practices which have made it difficult to collaborate safely with data.

NICE has procured Microsoft Office365 and SharePoint Online, but admitted to not having yet fully explored the opportunities they provide.

The organisation also said that its senior management also needs to understand how to develop effective enterprise architecture governance, while the corporate governance team has to make progress in optimising the use of digital tools in records management and information compliance, according to tender documents.

NICE has a 60-strong digital services team, but the transformation programme will span the whole organisation.
