1.Introduction and Background
UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) is a consolidation of 9 separate Research Bodies which came together as one organisation in 2018. UKRI are looking to replace our existing disparate IAM solutions with a single standardised Identity and Access Management (IAM) platform encompassing the 9 entities, with a goal of improving end users’ experience, increasing UKRI operational efficiencies and reducing costs, and reducing risk thereby delivering a more secure working environment.
UK Shared Business Services (UK SBS) provide procurement services for UKRI, and in support of this project, UK SBS and UKRI are looking to hold a pre-market Supplier day on Thursday 20th May 2021 which will assist in the development of our understanding of both the applications on the market and any new capabilities that may be on the horizon.
The proposed funding range is between £150k to £250k.
