Whilst the overall aim of the project is to satisfy all the Department’s GI requirements over the long term, the overriding objective in the first three years is to deliver a technical solution that will satisfy EU requirements for a fully compliant Land Parcel Identification System (LPIS). This will replace the previous GIS that has been in place since December 2004 and will address shortcomings and mitigate the risk of EU disallowance penalties. DARD also needs to implement a technical solution that will enable it to meet its obligations under the EU INSPIRE Directive.
DARD are looking to establish a flexible long-term relationship with a supplier to work with us to fully understand our business needs, develop appropriate and tailored technical GI solutions and to exploit the full range of benefits available from GIS. The key elements of the project are:
Developed applications – the successful supplier will design, build and implement bespoke GI business applications including integration with existing business information systems;
Geoportal – the successful supplier will design, build & implement a spatial data hub to enable spatial data exchange and sharing (internally within the Department & externally); and.
Online GI Services – the successful supplier will design, build and implement online facilities to provide GI functionality and transactional mapping services for a range of external stakeholders & customers.
