Accountant in Bankruptcy (AiB), Scotland’s insolvency service, has selected outsourcer Lockheed Martin to develop and support a new insolvency registration system aimed at streamlining its service delivery.
AiB is responsible for administering the process of personal bankruptcy and recording corporate insolvencies in Scotland. Lockheed Martin has worked with AiB for five years providing support services to its Multifunctional Insolvency Database Administration System (MIDAS).
Most recently, Lockheed also delivered AiB’s new on-line solution, ASTRA, used to register, advertise and process trust deeds in Scotland.
Under the new contract, Lockheed Martin will replace AiB’s existing MIDAS with the new streamlined Case Information System (CIS). The development phase is due to be completed in March 2015, with additional support continuing until February 2016.
The deal was secured through Lockheed Martin’s position on the Scottish government’s "Applications Web Development and Associated Services Framework".
Georgina O'Toole, an analyst at TechMarketView, said of the deal: "This contract is a good sign that Lockheed continues to work well with Amor’s customers."
Amor was an outsourcing supplier to AiB before Lockheed acquired Amor in September last year.
