Edge Testing Solutions Appointed to Scottish Government Digital Services Procurement System
Focus remains on strengthening public sector services with cyber security testing
One of the UK’s fastest growing and largest independent software testing companies, Edge Testing Solutions, part of Eurofins Digital Testing, has announced that it has gained a place on Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) 2.0.
The Digital Services DPS was first established in October 2017 as a flexible procurement mechanism designed by the Scottish Government to encourage competition and simplify access to digital expertise and services across Scottish public sector organisations. It has proven to be a hugely successful agreement, with the Scottish Government having over 40 call-off contracts totalling approximately £11 million, and over 80% of this spend going to SMEs.
Sharon Hamilton, Managing Director at Edge Testing, said: “For over a decade now, Edge Testing has played a pivotal role in helping Scottish public sector organisations to reduce costs, whilst managing risk, implementing process efficiencies and positively improving service quality."
"Edge Testing's public sector practice is one that we are continuing to focus on and grow, strengthened by our cyber security testing services. By working closely with public sector clients, we are ensuring that the services they deliver are all of the highest quality and our commitment to, and investment in, the public sector is something that has been recognised in gaining a place on the Dynamic Purchasing System 2.0."
