4) Transparency Agenda

On 02/04/2014, Government introduced its Government Security Classifications (GSC) scheme which replaced Government Protective

Marking Scheme (GPMS). A key aspect is the reduction in the number of security classifications used. All bidders were required to make

themselves aware of the changes as it may impact this requirement. This link provides information on the GSC at:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/government-security-classifications

Cyber Essentials is a mandatory requirement for Central Government contracts which involve handling personal information or provide certain

ICT products/services. Government is taking steps to reduce the levels of cyber security risk in its supply chain through the Cyber Essentials

scheme. The scheme defines a set of controls which, when implemented, will provide organisations with basic protection from the most prevalent

forms of threat coming from the internet. To participate in this procurement, bidders were required to demonstrate they comply with the

technical requirements prescribed by Cyber Essentials, for services under and in connection with this procurement.

CCS reserved the right to award a framework to any bidder whose final score was within 1% of the last position. Only Lot 5 had more suppliers than award places available. There were 30 bids for Lot 5, and with the application of the 1% rule this was reduced to 20 suppliers. The remaining 10 suppliers were not within 1% of the supplier in 20th place. This therefore fell in line with the information originally stated in the Contract Notice that was published on 29/11/2022.

Awarded Suppliers:

Lot 1.1 - 14 successful suppliers

Lot 1.2 - 13 successful suppliers
