UPDATE: Restrictions on emails have been lifted

We now have sufficient confidence our systems and servers have not been affected by the recent cyber attack on our ICT provider, Sopra Steria, that we have lifted the block on external emails.

As you would expect, there are a large number of emails that have been quarantine but work is well under way to release them and should be completed by the end of tomorrow (Friday).

Thank you for your patience and support whilst we have worked to safely resolve the situation.

Media statement on Carillion


Following Monday’s (15th January) announcement from Carillion PLC, it is entering insolvency. Gloucestershire County Council has made a statement:

Carillion PLC entered into insolvency along with several subsidiary companies in the group. We understand all companies will continue to operate, providing continuity of public services until further notice.

Gloucestershire County Council s unaffected by the announcement but recognises that the announcement has wide-reaching implications for the public sector.

Pete Bungard, Chief Executive of Gloucestershire County Council, said, “We sympathise with those public sector organisations that have been affected by Carillion. The county council does not hold any contracts with Carillion PLC or any of its subsidiaries.  We also have no future schemes planned with them. 

“We appreciate the private sector will be feeling the impact as well, and it’s a difficult time across the board. Over the coming weeks and months we expect there will be more clarity on what this announcement means in reality.”
