Description of the contract

A Supplier is required to assist FCOS staff in product identification and to commence delivery of some of the tangible products needed to assist the development of our advisory capability. The first deliverable of the work package will be a detailed assignment scope and recommendations for agreement with the Programme Director, describing the products to be provided and the approach to delivery. Following this, the selected key deliverables will need to be produced. This is not a theoretical study and only limited time should be expended on requirements gathering or other preparatory activities – the main thrust of the work should be on preparation of tangible products identified as needed for the emerging advisory service. An initial allowance in the order of 3 to 4 weeks effort should be allowed, probably best provided over a longer duration on a part time basis. Beyond this FCOS staff may be able to take remaining work forward, although the potential for further follow-up work should not be discounted. The selected bidder will provide reports and updates to the FCOS Client Delivery Programme Director. The resources to be used will need to be security cleared to SC level and be prepared to work at Hanslope Park, Milton Keynes.
