HC Deb 09 February 1995 vol 254 c353W
Mr. Soley

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if it is his intention, when contracting out the functions of the Official Receiver's Insolvency Service, to include the local office information system; and if contractors will have to bid for this.

Mr. Jonathan Evans

In the absence of any decision to contract out the functions of official receivers, the question of whether the local office information system, LOIS, will be included in any contract specification has not yet been considered.

Consultants have been engaged by the Insolvency Service to work up a specification, bid documentation and evaluation criteria and will consider matters such as this as part of their work.
