Fair Start Scotland (FSS) is Scotland’s employment support service providing assistance to those individuals ‘furthest from getting steady work’.
During the transition period from DWP, it became clear that a new Scottish IT system would be required to manage support and following a competitive tender, Bridgeall was appointed as the delivery partner for a new Scottish Employability Tracking Service (SETS).
Late delivery was not an option. The full project lifecycle – strategy, initiation, discovery, procurement, alpha, beta and transition to live service – had to be completed within 14 months; and at a fixed price. Working closely with FSS’s internal project team, and adopting an Agile approach, the Bridgeall software development team delivered on-time and under budget.
