S5W-10803: Mark Griffin (Central Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 16 August 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how many people are employed by the successful bidder for the Scottish Social Security Technical Delivery Support contract, and how many of these employees will be committed to the contract.

Answered by: Jeane Freeman 6 September 2017

The ‘Scottish Social Security Technical Delivery Support’ requirement was cancelled as result of on going changes to the scope of requirements. The requirement is still being reviewed for a potential future procurement exercise. The procurement process which was issued via the Digital Marketplace for this project did not progress beyond selection Stage 1. There was no invitation to tender was issued, no contract awarded and therefore there is no value to provide, no winning contractors and no start date for the provision of the services. The background note provides further information.
