The University wishes to procure an IP management database. The current, locally developed Intellectual Property (IP) database is falling into disrepair as local expertise in continuing development has been lost and the application under which it was developed (Microsoft Access) is no longer supported by the University. Currently, the Access based IP database supports 9 regular users, which we would hope to increase to 20 with any new system. It holds nearly 3000 projects and tracks information about intellectual property disclosures to the University, including disclosure, patent filings, deadlines, commercial licences, financial and forecasting information. Our aim is to replace the current Access database with a solution that not only provides at least the same functionality in terms of managing all aspects of the University’s intellectual property holdings and commercial projects, but also supports the increasingly diverse nature of project, impact, awards and external organisation management within the team.
