Description of the contract

The Home Office Advance Passenger Information, Passenger Name Record and Data Quality Project (API/PNR DQ) Project is looking for agile capability partners (Suppliers) to provide specific types of skilled resources to work within one or more agile scrum teams on a pipeline of the project’s software Releases. The API/PNR DQ Project, part of the Home Office Data Analytics Capability Programme (HODAC), requires a system that supports the business in performing DQ analysis and reporting. The Home Office is looking to embed the concept of a skills based team and is seeking resources who have a core skill and other supporting capabilities. For example a Business Analyst who can produce wire frames. Resources put forward for roles should be able to articulate their core strength and their supporting skills. All proposed resources will be required to use a recognised agile methodology with continual delivery. Automated testing will be an on-going activity throughout development. Deliveries will be tested against both functional and non-functional requirements. Suppliers will be required to test in accordance with the Home Office Test Strategy and support Home Office managed integration testing, release processes, live running and on-going enhancements. The provisioning approach is to have the system hosted by a G-Cloud Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) provider and delivered to users both within the Home Office and third party organisations over secure Internet connections. Most parts of the solution will be hosted in an IL2 security zone, but an IL3 Landing Zone (GCloud accreditations) required to ingest data feeds from Border Force’s secure systems. External user access and unclassified (internet-based) data feeds will be enabled via a secure Internet access zone. The solution is based on a technology stack hosted on Windows Server operating systems, where MS SQL Server and Tableau Server are the main components.
