To obtain approval for a contract variation to the Microsoft Enterprise Licence Agreement provided by Bytes Software Services Ltd for the procurement of a Microsoft 365 data migration partner and ancillary services, in relation to recommendations (a) and (c) detailed in the Procurement of a Microsoft 365 Implementation Partner Decision dated 27/07/2021.


In coming to this decision I have given due and full regard to the requirements of the public sector equality duty contained in section 149 of the Equality Act 2010 (“the Act”) by reference to the law itself.  


Having fully considered all the available information, I have decided to reject the alternative options and take the recommended decision:

For the reasons set out in the report.
