Dear Freedom of Information NHFT,

1. Who is part of your software developement and testing
framework?

We are not sure what this question means; need to clarify what is meant by
who (person, team, 3rd party?), software development (what are they
referring to, testing of in-house developed software or purchased
products) and testing framework (unusual terminology in this instance)

My Response: 3rd party suppliers like Capita, both testng of in-house and of purchased and a framework is essentially when various suppliers compete to provide the best cost effective solution to a software problem, should they provide the best answer they are usually assigned a contracted time until their services will be either renewed or given to someone else.

2. What is your spend anually for developement and testing of
software?

Need to clarify 1 above to be able to answer.

Yours sincerely,
