Partner: PTFS Europe Limited


The Foreign And Commonwealth Office (FCO), based in London and Milton Keynes, is responsible for protecting and promoting British interests worldwide. It employs over 13,000 staff in the UK and in over 260 diplomatic posts overseas.

The Requirement

 FCO needed a modern, online search and retrieval content management system to enable it to store, search, retrieve and manage the contents of its digital document library, including texts in many foreign languages.

Our Success

FCO identified Knowvation Software as a Service, available from Bramble Hub and PTFS Europe on the government’s G-Cloud software applications catalogue. The contract included hosting, installation, configuration, training, loading of data and customisation of the search portal. The call-off order was issued in April 2016 and work started immediately to load data into the online system.
