Delivery Partner for Digital Services and Replacement of Legacy Mission IT
Delivery partner for digital services and replacement of legacy mission IT.
Disclosure Scotland consider that Regulation 33(1)(b)(ii) of the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2015 allows for the negotiated procedure without prior publication of a Contract Notice or prior information notice in this case. The incumbent service provider is the only economic operator who has the technical ability to deliver the functionality needed for the replacement IT system before the current platform is decommissioned in September 2019. The incumbent supplier has been working with Disclosure Scotland for more than 2 years in developing the new system but due to the complexity of the programme this will take slightly longer than originally envisaged to enable successful completion and operation. The incumbent supplier has gained an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the requirements and functionality over more than 2 years working with Disclosure Scotland. This work needs to continue for a further short period of time to allow successful completion of the system to allow full operation by September 2019 for a critical public service for safeguarding. Competition is therefore absent for technical reasons as the Authority requires on-going technical development and design of this business critical service. This contract awarded is appropriately limited in duration having regard for the urgency and critical nature of the service to allow for a safe and successful transition and mobilisation of the new IT system.
