II.1.4)Short description:

Our SAP system is currently used to store all HR, Payroll and Finance data. Any historic data which must kept for legal, regulatory or operational reasons must be transitioned to an alternative solution in order to not be reliant on a fully operational and supplier supported SAP system when the existing contract ends at the end of 2017.

SCC is looking for a provider that will ‘lift and shift’ their existing instance of SAP, create an archive solution and subsequently host it off SCC premises. Consideration also needs to be given to how potential solutions will be able to ensure retention of SAP data and OpenText integrations, and the subsequent retrieval of this data by the end user.

In terms of high level functionality any solution must allow for SCC users to be able to retrieve and report on data themselves in a timely manner through the current recognised SAP interface. Furthermore, data that has been lifted and shifted into the archive solution must be read-only.

The Contracting Authority will incorporate a minimum 10 calendar day standstill period (or 15 days where non-electronic or fax methods are used) at the point that an award decision notice is communicated to tenderers.

The award decision process will specify the criteria for the award of the contract/framework agreement, the reasons for the decision, including the characteristics and relative advantages, the name and score of the successful tender; and will specify when the standstill period is expected to end or the date before which the Contracting Authority will not conclude the contract/framework agreement.

If an appeal regarding the award of a contract/framework agreement has not been successfully resolved, the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of a breach of the rules to take action in the High Court (England, Wales and Northern Ireland).

Any such action must be brought promptly (generally within 3 months).

The Court may order the setting aside of the award decision or may order the Contracting Authority to amend any document and may award damages.

If an agreement has been entered into the Court may make a declaration of ineffectiveness or may order that the duration of any relevant specific contract be shortened and additionally may award damages.

The time limit for seeking such a declaration is generally 30 days from notification of the award (either by award decision notification or contract award notice depending upon the circumstances) or otherwise 6 months.
