The Crown Office & Procurator Fiscal’s Service (COPFS) has appointed a supplier to provide Intranet and Internet Support Services. The service will be efficient, cost-effective and provide scheduled and remedial maintenance services for its Intranet and Internet sites.
The COPFS Internet and Intranet sites support its external and internal communications and publishing needs. COPFS requires a Service Provider to support the operation and maintenance of both sites, including professional services, and to provide server hosting for the external facing internet site. Both sites run using Joomla CMS software, enabling COPFS staff to easily add and amend website content without requiring technical support. The outward facing (Internet) site is hosted by the Service Provider, whereas the internal Intranet site is hosted on COPFS own network and infrastructure.
In order to meet security compliance demands, COPFS is required to respond to security alerts, apply OS patches, service packs and upgrade software libraries and API’s within targets set by the business and external auditors. As the Intranet runs on COPFS network, it is necessary that Joomla software components for this environment such as PHP, MTSQL and any other 3rd party libraries to be maintained to the latest stable version to ensure security vulnerabilities are minimized. Also the software must be compatible with upgrades and patches to the operating system that COPFS is required to apply in order to keep its network secure. The Service Provider is expected to support COPFS remediation schedule, confirming ongoing support for all mandatory OS patches, service packs, software and API updates.
