QUALITY STANDARDS

The Tenderer is to be a minimum of ISO27001 (Information Security Management Systems) compliant.

The system must be configured to comply with national guidelines pertaining to safe blood transfusion practice (BSQR 8th edn.), whilst maintaining appropriate functionality such that it complies with the guidelines established by best practice for pathology services (ISO 15189).

Cyber Security: The MoD has a duty to protect itself from Cyber threats and now we extend this to Suppliers we engage with. As an extension of the Government’s Cyber Essentials Scheme the MoD, working together with Industry and other Government Departments, have developed a more robust Cyber Security Model, under the umbrella of the Defence Cyber Protection Partnership (DCPP). All prime contractors must have the cyber security controls specified in DEF Stan 05-138 (Cyber Security for Defence Suppliers), as appropriate to the cyber risk level specified in the contract.

The Authority has determined the level of risk at Very Low (Reference: RAR-6U33THAA) as defined in DEF Stan 05-138. In order to do business with the MOD you must have the cyber security controls required as shown above.

Should you have any questions please contact Lynn Wallace, Commercial Officer at lynn.wallace110@mod.gov.uk
