LJMU wish to establish a single source framework for a Microsoft Power BI implementation partner.
There is an initial definite project, once this framework is established, which is the migration of the University’s Finance and HR reporting from Oracle Discoverer to Microsoft Power BI, including the build and delivery of a data warehouse.
Please note, beyond this initial project, LJMU do not guarantee any further revenue under this framework, however if we do have any further projects that require migrating to this reporting tool, we will allocate to the successful bidder (subject to the pricing being realistic and sustainable)

— Athena Swan,
— workload allocation.
Please note these are not guaranteed, as is subject to budgets and internal resource.
Power BI is already an established reporting tool at the university, therefore there is no requirement to install and configure the new solution. The winning bidder will be required to work with in-house specialists to design and build a data warehouse based on Finance and HR data models in the Oracle E-Business Suite, in addition to building/migrating operational and management reports.
The successful company will be expected to deliver the following service against this initial project:
— project management,
— requirements gathering/analysis of current reporting landscape,
— solution design,
— build of integrated data warehouse,
— implementation of a security model,
— migration and build of key finance and HR reports,
