Once again the DWP are reduced to scurrying around trying to hide documents after their lack of competence at the internet has been revealed to the world. And once again they’ve been caught out by the notorious google cache. The tender documents for the Personal Independence Payment contracts on the parliament.uk website have now been changed to protected PDFs, meaning information can not be copied and pasted therefore the redacted material cannot be viewed.
Unfortunately for Atos and the DWP, the documents are still available by googling the original urls on which they were hosted and then clicking on Quick View.
So the Atos Tender for London and the South east, complete with bodged redactions, can be found by clicking: http://data.parliament.uk/DepositedPapers/Files/DEP2012-1399/A-Atos_Doc4Part5_TenderForm_Lot3.pdf
To find out the names of sub-contractors visit: http://data.parliament.uk/DepositedPapers/Files/DEP2012-1399/Atos_Doc4Part6Annex2_Lot3.pdf
To download as a PDF go to the File option on the top left of the screen and select Download Original. UPDATE: This no longer works, instead go to the View button and select View HTML – the document can then be read without redaction to reveal secret Atos facts such as their claim that they have assets currently on the balance sheet worth a whopping £180billion (thanks to Malthus in the comments for the tip).
The tenders for Scotland and Northern England can be found at: http://data.parliament.uk/DepositedPapers/Files/DEP2012-1399/Atos_ITT_Doc4Part5_TenderForm_Lot1.pdf
