Marine Specialised Technology Ltd v Secretary of State for Defence
Citation:  EWHC 2727 (TCC)
An existing supplier to the MoD discovered that its confidential information had been published by the MoD over an extended period in breach of contract and in breach of procurement obligations. A new procurement was underway and the breaches were relevant to that competition.
The Court held that the Claimant’s experts were entitled to inspect the relevant website data to establish whether the information had been accessed and if so by whom. Costs were awarded against the Secretary of State for Defence, on a standard basis at 82% of the costs schedule.
Fionnuala McCredie QC appeared on behalf of the Claimant.
