The City of Edinburgh Council is awarding a new partnership with a service provider for the provision of all of its Information, Communication and Technology (‘ICT’) services in line with The City of Edinburgh Council and Scottish Local Government ICT and Digital Strategies.

The scope of ICT Services to be delivered includes all ICT services presently delivered, those contemplated to be delivered by 2016 and all future ICT requirements of the City of Edinburgh Council and the contracting authorities named in this Contract Award Notice and previous Contract Notice.
The City of Edinburgh Council was expressly looking for a solution to its ICT service provision which is sufficiently flexible and scalable so as to provide a long-term resolution that offer significant future-proofing.
The service provider will also have the opportunity to provide ICT services to the other contracting authorities which are named in this Contract Award Notice and previous Contract Notice.
The ICT services concerned are for all of The City of Edinburgh Council's present and future ICT services and include, but are not limited, the examples of:
— Desktops and devices,
— Wide Area Networks (WAN),
— Local Area Network (LAN),
— Platforms,

— Data centre,
— Change Configuration Release Management (CCRM),
— Service design and transition,
— Service desk,

— Projects which support ICT-enabled business change and transformation.
The contracting authorities that may wish to use the ICT Service Solution developed by the City of Edinburgh Council are listed in section I.2 and in the Contract Notice. For the avoidance of doubt, the City of Edinburgh Council will not purchase on behalf of those contracting authorities.
