***CLOSING TIME FOR BIDS IS 15/11/2016 at 11:00 HOURS. DO NOT APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE BUYER*** The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) is a UK government body that carries out civil research in science and engineering, and funds UK research in areas including particle physics, nuclear physics, space science and astronomy. It is one of Europe’s largest multidisciplinary research organisations supporting scientists and engineers world-wide. Through research fellowships and grants, it is responsible for funding research in UK universities. STFC operates its own world-class, large-scale research facilities (such as materials research, laser and space science and alternative energy exploration) and provides strategic advice to the UK government on their development. It manages international research projects in support of a broad cross-section of the UK research community and directs, coordinates and funds research, education and training. It is a partner in the UK Space Agency (formerly British National Space Centre or BNSC) providing about 40% of the UK government’s expenditure in space science and technology. CICT is part of the Corporate Services Directorate within STFC and is responsible for providing IT support for all departments across STFC. The department operates in a way typical to most IT service departments providing helpdesk support, infrastructure services, network services, IT security, application services support, telephony, video-conferencing support and data-centre operations. CICT has recently embarked upon a Digital Transformation Programme. The purpose of this change programme is to re-align the department so that it is more efficient, it delivers services to customers in a more effective and professional manner, and there is a clear distinction between business as usual activity and project delivery activity. The transformed department will show adherence to international best practices standards such as ITIL, PRINCE2 and SIAM. During the construction of the business case for change it was recognised that there is an immediate need to upskill the eight Senior Managers within CICT so that they are in a stronger position to support the CICT Transformation Change Programme. There is also a more generic need for them to demonstrate more robust management and leadership skills moving forward so that the changes implemented through the programme can be sustained post-implementation. This tender is to identify a supplier who can provide an innovative leadership development programme to address the skills gap within the CICT Senior Leadership Team. This tender forms part of the CICT transformation Programme and the winning tender will be working closely with the Programme Manager to ensure that the proposed approach remains on track in terms of delivery, and is clearly meeting the desired aims. It is essential that improvements can be seen in Senior Management from the early stages of delivery.
