Contracted Out Insolvency Services
Following a public procurement exercise, AiB appointed three providers for the supply of insovlency services for a period of two years from 1 April 2013, with a further two optional one-year extensions.
The Insolvency Services Framework allows The Accountant in Bankruptcy to use external providers to administer bankruptcy cases on her behalf, where she has been appointed trustee.
The three successful providers in the contract are:
- Wylie & Bisset LLP
- Insolvency Support Services (ISS)
This contract replaces the previous contract for insolvency services which ended on 31 March 2013. The Contract Operations team will continue to work with all the providers through the good working relationship established throughout the tenure of the previous contract.
The Insolvency Services Framework was introduced in April 2009 for a three year period with the option to extend for a further 12 month period. AiB utilised the 12 month extension option, resulting in an expiry date of 31 March 2013. There were six successful providers in this contract. One provider resigned from the contract at a later date.
- Wylie and Bisset LLP
- Armstrong Watson
- MMG Archbold (formerly Miller McIntyre and Gellatly)
- Hastings & Co
- Invocas (resigned)
