NLPU’s organisational objectives are as follows:
— To increase knowledge of the variety and extent of Lottery funding amongst all audiences,
— To encourage Lottery players to make a direct link between Lottery spend and the social, cultural and economic investment in their community,
— To identify cross cutting programmes across the Lottery family where we can add value by ensuring that our whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
Further details about the NLPU are available on our website: www.lotterygoodcauses.org.uk.
A supplier is required to redesign NLPU website (www.lotterygoodcauses.org.uk) to modernise the current site and provide a solution that can accommodate a new good causes archive being built by Camelot as well as the functions of the current Lottery Funding website (www.lotteryfunding.org.uk). The new website must provide an inspirational and accessible and interactive hub for information about The Lottery Family, the funding it provides and who has benefitted.
The new site will unite the functions of the following websites and host a new archive to expand upon the functions of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport’s (DCMS) central Lottery grants search tool, currently in development by Camelot.
Lottery funding: www.lotteryfunding.org.uk.
Lottery Extranet: http://extranet.lotterygoodcauses.org.uk/login/.
Lottery grant search tool: www.lottery.culture.gov.uk/AdvancedSearch.aspx.
The NLPU will work alongside Camelot and the Lottery Distributing Bodies (LDBs) to ensure that partners’ needs are met by the new website.
The contract duration is 3 years with an option to extend by 12 months. Should you wish to participate please view this opportunity on our e-tendering website https://biglotteryfund.bravosolution.co.uk, where further information is available. The closing date for receipt of PQQ’s is 12:00 noon on Monday 16.1.2012.
