The existing CUPID solution for mobile working is approaching the end of its five year life. Technology in terms of software and devices has changed significantly over the past five years and the current CUPID solution is no longer fit for purpose.
The existing contract was novated to Steria in 2010 and had an original end date of December 2013, with an optional extension for a further five years to 2018.
The novated contract and solution for mobile working can be amended and upgraded by folowing the contractually agreed change control procedure within the Project I outsourcing contract with Steria. This is fully compliant with OJEU rules. A recommendation is now put to the PCC, Chief of Staff and the CFO.
