Following conclusion of a separate competitive process Bruno Bonacci was selected to deliver the initial stages of Hyde’s Data Integration project, including a complex proof of concept. As part of the initial engagement, Hyde has invested a significant engineering resource to transfer technical knowledge (relating to the specific set up and application dependencies within its IT infrastructure) to the consultant. It is considered that it would not be economically advantageous for another supplier to take over and continue these consultancy services. Moving elsewhere would result in additional risk and cost associated with the transfer of specialised knowledge and onboarding.
The conclusion is further supported by the critical nature of this project due to numerous interdependencies with other strategic IT initiatives. Given that this requirement is time-critical and due to the technical complexity, moving to another consultant would increase the overall risk to the successful delivery of this project and would negatively impact other interdependent projects in terms of technical risk, time, and cost.
The overall project is expected to take up to 24 months, but it will be phased. The initial contract term will be 6 months with an option to extend for further periods up to 24 months.
To ensure that delivery of the Data Integration project is achievable within Hyde’s budget and staff capacity and for the reasons stated above, Hyde intends to extend the existing services being delivered by Bruno Bonacci as a change of supplier would cause disproportionate technical difficulties and a fair competition is absent for technical reasons.
