II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

The Northern Ireland Civil Service (NICS) wishes to establish a framework for Disposal Services for IT equipment, electronic and electrical equipment under the WEEE regulations, for use by the Departments and Bodies detailed below. Unauthorised disclosure of information / sensitive data is a major risk mainly due to the increasing dependence on electronic storage systems and the use of disposable media. NICS Departments and Bodies have therefore developed asset disposal strategies that can require data to be deleted from media and equipment sometimes prior to its permanent removal from site for disposal and/or recycling or for assured data destruction take place. The framework therefore seeks to appoint contractors with the capability to; securely and irreversibly delete data from a range of media either on the customer’s premises / or offsite; and securely and legally dispose of redundant information and communications technology equipment and media. Once the framework has been established, secondary competitions will be completed for each disposal required. This will allow successful contractors to quote for all or any relevant disposals. A Protocol document on how this process will be undertaken will be issued to successful contractors on award of the framework. The Contracting Authority for this Framework will be the Department of Finance and Personnel. IT Assist as a Shared Service Provider within the NICS and a main user of the Framework will provide contract management. The framework shall commence upon award and will remain in force for 4 years.
