The SSS have a business requirement to implement a Minimum Viable Product Debt Case Management System by March 2019. The SSS may decide to host the DMS infrastructure within our own AWS cloud at a future date. Therefore, we require the supplier to provide an option cost to:

a. migrate the system in to the SSS private cloud;

b. provide support for the application layer only.

At that time SSS will work with the Supplier to migrate the system into the SSS private cloud.

Beyond the initial implementation, there is the intention to integrate with other components within the SSS Solution, the Out The Box integration capabilities of the system are a key factor in vendor / system selection. The SSS have a strategic aim to exploit the system integration capabilities requirements at a later date and may seek to develop additional functionality within the system through additional statements of works at a later date to meet evolving business requirements in an environment of change.
