Contract Award

DRS is pleased to announce that it has agreed a new contract (the “Contract”) with AQA Education (“AQA”), a leading UK provider of academic qualifications, relating to the continued supply by DRS of its e-Marker® examination services.

AQA and DRS have been working together since 2005.  The Contract replaces the current agreement and extends the Company’s relationship with AQA to 23 March 2018.  Over the 3 year term of the Contract DRS expects to remain the primary provider delivering the majority of the electronic marking volume to AQA, with the principal focus continuing to be on the provision of Item Level Marking services.

DRS recognises that in providing services to AQA we compete with other suppliers and that AQA has introduced a multi-supplier model which will enable it to reduce manual marking and increase the percentage of scripts that are marked electronically whilst mitigating supplier risk. In 2014 DRS provided electronic marking services for approximately 60% of AQA’s GCSE and A level scripts.

We look forward to continuing to work closely with AQA in the years ahead to enhance and extend services for automated examination processing.
