2i Testing, one of the leading independent testing consultancies in the UK, have been awarded a 2-year contract as one of the suppliers supporting the delivery of the Social Security Programme and Agency through the creation and implementation of digital solutions.
The programme forms part of the new Scottish Social Security Agency and will support the delivery of the devolved benefits and help put in place a modern, digital service which places people at the heart of the welfare system. The contract, which started on the 1st February 2018, will see 2i working in partnership with Scottish Government to support and develop the architecture, capabilities and platforms that will underpin the delivery of the welfare benefits as the responsibility for them is transferred from Westminster.
Commenting on the contract award, 2i Managing Director Dave Kelly said:
"2i are absolutely delighted to be chosen to help the Scottish Government deliver a modern Social Security system in line with their key values of dignity, fairness and respect for citizens. We are totally committed to providing the best possible technology platform that supports the evolving Scottish Social Security Agency and helps them deliver against all of their goals."
Dave took on the role of Managing Director in late 2017 and is committed to ensuring 2i's continued growth is aligned to the changing face of testing within the software delivery lifecycle. Prior to joining 2i in 2014, Dave was the Scotland Director for NCC Group following their acquisition of SDLC Solutions where he opened the Scottish office and played a major part in developing SDLC into one of the leading test consultancies within the UK.
