components into the related data processing systems, covering all aspects of 
system integration and testing, including support to the end-to-end testing of 
the complete production system.
The Key Person’s duties will also cover the contribution to the setting-up and 
implementation of maintenance policies and procedures as well as the 
co-ordination with external providers of maintenance services. This may also
