Provision of Professional Services – Implementation of Oracle Purchasing


Description of the goods or services required

We aim to implement Oracle Purchasing as a solution which can be successfully used to account for outstanding commitments and record up to date spend on an accrual basis. This will form the first Phase of a two Stage project.

The purpose of this tender is to secure a number of days of consultancy services to help the Council implement the procured Oracle Purchasing module for the 1st Phase of this project. The consultancy will help the Council introduce a fully configured and supported Oracle Purchasing module which will help to satisfy the Councils commitment accounting needs. This phase will also include a review of our reporting requirements, currently provided via Discoverer with Noetix views and put forward any recommendations for improvement if needed.

As a second phase, and after the initial knowledge transfer from the implementation project, as part of a 2nd Phase, we plan to extend the range of systems that interface with Oracle Purchasing within the Council.
