Wylie & Bisset win unprecedented fourth-in-a-row AiB contract
The Scottish government contract managed by the Accountant in Bankruptcy (AiB) has just been announced and awarded to two Scottish businesses, Dunedin Advisory Ltd and Wylie & Bisset.
In the case of Wylie & Bisset, the contract has been awarded for an unprecedented fourth time in succession.
Donald McKinnon, Wylie & Bisset managing partner, said: “We are delighted to have secured this contract for the delivery of a comprehensive range of personal bankruptcy services throughout Scotland for an unprecedented fourth time in succession.
“The latest contract win stands as testament to the quality and range of expertise we have been delivering to AiB for over a decade now and we look forward to continuing our professional working relationship over the years ahead.”
AiB is responsible for the determination of personal and entity bankruptcy applications, making decisions on debt payment programme applications under the Debt Arrangement Scheme and protecting trust deeds.
Christine Convy, director and insolvency practitioner of Dunedin, said: “A number of insolvency firms entered the rigorous tender process in January, and we are delighted to be appointed as the main contractor for the next two-year period.
“This extends our relationship with the AiB which has developed over the past 9 years and demonstrates our commitment to continually upgrading our systems and processes in providing a stream-lined quality service to both clients and the agency.”
Jill Glen, director and insolvency practitioner, added: “We are absolutely delighted to have won the contract which rewards a real team effort by everyone involved with Dunedin Advisory.
“There have been many challenges to overcome during the past two years including statutory changes, hybrid working and technology advancements.
“The introduction of online communication with clients is a real positive and has proven to be significant in maintaining a stream-lined quality of service during the pandemic.”
