CCS looks for partner to help deliver its notices system

£4m contract aims to develop online e-notices services for public sector organisations


Based on an existing service, the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) is looking for a digital transformation partner to develop online services to enable public sector organisations to publish an extended range of e-notices accessible to businesses and other users.

CCS is responsible for providing an e-notice service to public sector organisations to enable them to meet their legal and policy obligations. But the current service needs some enhancement to meet future user needs. In addition, a new service on the same platform will be required to support a significant number of new notice types.

Development and testing of the new service needs to be complete by September 2018 to facilitate the on-boarding of users by the end of March 2019.

CCS wants users to be able to find e-notices published by public sector organisations on current and new services in a straightforward and transparent manner via online search, dashboards and data outputs.

According to the tender, both data input and output  services will need to be delivered via a web user interface, XML, csv and JSON upload/download, inbound API and imports from third party systems, and SAML based authentication.

The new service will be deployed to a dedicated environment for extensive user testing. Both services require hosting and support.

CCS has already done some discovery work to outline requirements and potential delivery models as well as a comprehensive legal analysis of the additional notices required for the new service.

The current service has been developed over the last 12 months, will need to be migrated in its current form and is then expected to require only maintenance over the next 18 months.

The expected contract length is two years including a period of UAT, on-boarding and post development hosting and support. The contract value is expected to be around £4m.

The closing date for applications is February 14.
