Requirement for Address Lookup Service

Requirement for Address Lookup Service

The Environment Agency is considering the potential use of a cloud based address lookup provider. We have a number of existing applications using address lookups but we now believe we require an “off the shelf” cloud based solution (at best a solution with very little bespoking required) for any future applications requiring address data.

Description of the contract

The Environment Agency is considering the potential use of a cloud based address lookup provider. We have a number of existing applications using address lookups but we now believe we require an “off the shelf” cloud based solution (at best a solution with very little bespoking required) for any future applications requiring address data. It is important to note that the address service must use AddressBase (preferably premium) accessed/provided (preferably) through a Restful interface from the service. By way of some further explanation, I have attached some slides which give an overview of our requirements. The length of contract and its value is approximate – the below mentioned Supplier day will help us form a more educated view on this.

How to apply

We intend to hold a Supplier meeting on 29th October at our office in Solihull (date and duration to be confirmed). We are holding this event in order for our project team to explain our requirements in some detail, and to give potential suppliers the opportunity to ask questions and feedback on our current train of thought. Following the meeting and feedback it is our intention to refine our specification and issue a tender at a later date in order to find a supplier(s) to provide this service to us. More will be explained on the day. Please contact Alastair Jack to register an interest and for further details.
