Transport Scotland Softcat hosting contract: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002

Information requested

As per my records, Softcat hosting contract has expired. I would like to know whether this contract is still valid or replaced by any other supplier.


The answer to your question is that our subscription for Azure Cloud remains with Softcat. However, the contractual framework under which we allocated that piece of business to Softcat expired on 30th April 2023 after a few short extensions. That framework has been replaced by an agreement with Computacenter (UK) Ltd, known as the Software Value Added Reseller Services framework, and we therefore intend to move our Azure Cloud subscription under the auspices of that new framework contract.
