II.2.4)Description of the procurement:
The current Portmaster system is a bespoke system written for Portsmouth International Port in the early 1990’s.
Portsmouth International Port is now looking to replace the Ship Movements and Operational Costs areas of the system with a new system which will need to perform a similar function but also have some additional functionality. Please note that this project does not include any freight elements.
Ship Movements captures activity associated with the movement of ships such as: ship details, berthing services, pilotage and movement details. However the system is not required to be a full vessel tracking system (VTS) and does not hold records of movements for such vessels as Isle of Wight Ferries, Gosport Ferries or any naval movements or naval berths.
Operational Costs captures data to allow the export of sales orders to the Port’s separate finance system, along with associated reporting and maintenance.
The system is used by up to approximately 20 concurrent users.
The Council is looking to award a contract for the replacement of these areas of the system along with an associated maintenance/support contract for a 5 year period with option to extend in increments to be agreed, subject to agreement and performance of both parties, to a maximum term of 8 years.
