Contract with Deloitte LLP for the provision of digital solution design, build and live service of a digital platform, ordering portals and mobile applications to support the Covid-19 National Test Service.

The services provided under this contract support the digital and data journey for COVID-19 testing, currently amounting to millions of tests each week, and have introduced new capabilities as the testing programme has evolved to support the pandemic response.

Following signature of the original contract, a contract variation was entered into on 12 February 2021 in order to reflect an increase in the scope of services being provided. Pursuant to this contract variation, the maximum contract value was increased to £51,000,000.

The contract has an initial period expiring on 31 March 2021 and includes an option to extend the contract by way of variation.

The changing pressures of the pandemic due to the new variants in circulation and the increased rate of spread of the virus are both factors contributing to the criticality of ensuring that the testing services continue uninterrupted.

Therefore, it is envisaged that the option to extend the contract is likely to be utilised to ensure there is no interruption to service, as this poses a significant risk to public health.

Please note this contract was awarded on 18 December 2020. However due to technical reasons associated with the configuration of Contracts Finder, the contract award date is shown elsewhere in this notice as 19 June 2020.
