Alongside this Coventry City Council (CCC) is keen to maximise the use of software systems we contract and to minimise the number of software systems we use where possible. The ICT team would welcome the proposal of software systems that meet the safeguarding requirement but also offer additional functions that can be offered separately from the safeguarding. This could include enhanced safeguarding features, print management, energy saving, asset management for example. The Council’s budget for the safeguarding system is £370,000 but the Council reserves the right to spend up to 500 000 GBP under the contract if there are additional system services / benefits that may be of interest to the Council.

The contract will also cover any ongoing annual costs for the use, support and maintenance of the system.
