Description of the contract
Government Procurement Service is running a Request for Information on behalf of the UK Supreme Court (UKSC). The UKSC currently uses an extension of the MoJ DOM1 domain. This is secured to IL3; however the UKSC only requires its domain to be secure to IL2. This opens up alternative methods of delivery (including a variety of cloud services) and is expected to lead to significant cost savings and increased user experience. UKSC staff use a mixture of desktop & laptop PCs which have all been built and configured to the same DOM 1 standard. This ‘one size fits all approach’ has caused problems for the UKSC and there is a widespread perception that service could be improved by moving to a dedicated UKSC environment. Being part of the larger MoJ arrangements also means the UKSC is sometimes restricted by wider cross-MoJ ICT policies which have no bearing on the UKSC. The UKSC is now looking for an alternative model which better suits its needs and which gives the organisation direct control over its IT provision, enables easier remote working and ensures that any changes to the network, hosting, applications, devices and any other elements of the environment are quick, easy and cost effective.
