The provision of Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) Services and Transformation to Scottish Borders Council. The Council intends to extend the current established partnership and related contract with CGI by a further 5 years to take advantage of long term transformative opportunities and technologies to deliver the best possible outcomes for the Scottish Borders.
The Council intends to extend the current established partnership and related contract with CGI by a further 5 years to meet long term future challenges, to take advantage of new transformative opportunities and so to deliver the best possible outcomes for the Scottish Borders.
The Council recognises the adverse effect of the current pandemic on the economy and the resulting uncertainty for the longer term. This proposal will minimise the effect of this on both employees and the community by providing security in relation to ongoing services and delivering transformation opportunities through long term investment in the digital borders programme.
Section IV: Procedure
The original City of Edinburgh contract award notice, 2014/S 024-038205, noted the scope of ICT services to be delivered as including 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 the original Contract Notice. It further noted a requirement for a contract which is sufficiently flexible and scalable so as to provide a long-term resolution that offers significant future-proofing. The estimated value excluding VAT was noted to be in the range: between GBP 150 000 000 and 2 000 000 000. Scottish Borders Council is one of three of the named authorities currently contracted pursuant to the arrangements awarded under 2014/S024-038205 with an overall anticipated spend well within the value range notified to the market in 2014 (SBC substantive contract awarded 2016 for a period of 13 years with optional 6 year extension and a likely spend of GBP 179 million) such that the additional scope and spend remains an application of the original terms within the scope of the original contract notice. This ensures the requirements of EC Directive 2004/18/C as incorporated into Scots Law by the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2015 are met.
