Customer Feedback

All services detailed above [relates to PANDA and ePANDA] have been major high-profile initiatives for Ofsted, which have delivered core business services in areas where timeliness, accuracy and responsiveness have been paramount.

Throughout the contract SDA have been fair and have taken a partnership style approach to ensure delivery of the best possible service. The services have represented excellent value for money and SDA have taken a pro-active approach in the project management of product delivery.

SDA have provided consistent high quality outputs whilst ensuring the responsiveness and adaptability to changing demands.

SDA have anticipated and dealt with complications that have arisen due to factors beyond their own control, to ensure that the service levels specified have been comfortably achieved and frequently bettered. RAID would have no hesitation including SDA/GIDE on a tender list for the completion of similar work in the future.

I and my senior colleagues at Ofsted recognise the invaluable assistance you have provided to us in this period, without which the service to schools would have been seriously jeopardised.
