East Sussex County Council (ESCC) has a wide range of microsites hosted by a number of different companies to varying standards and quality. Microsites, for the purpose of this procurement exercise, are defined as web sites initiated and owned by an ESCC team which deal with subject matters of interest to ESCC partners or the public but which are not part of the core business of ESCC.

To address this ESCC’s ongoing need for sites and to resolve risks identified in a recent audit a single supplier is needed. We are seeking to deliver this through the creation of a single supplier framework wherein when a new requirement arises it can call off from this Framework. The primary objective as described above will be best delivered in conjunction with a supplier who is willing to work in partnership with ESCC and not in transactional site creation.

In this tender we will be asking for a supplier that can deliver services related to the development, delivery and ongoing support for bespoke microsites. The Development will require liaison with the ESCC service areas to ensure that the development meets the needs of the service area and is deliverable within their individual budgets and timescales.
