Re: Should be hosted in the UK by a UK organisation

AWS does have UK regions/DCs available (as does Azure), normally the criteria for sensitive data or certain government functions is that their data has to be retained on servers hosted in a domestic DC.

As for companies from another country being involved, this isn't anything new. You've had the likes of DXC (formerly HPE/EDS), Accenture, ATOS and other large IT multinationals providing hosting, outsourcing and other BPO-style services to government departments for decades.
