II.4)Short description of nature and quantity or value of supplies or services:

This notice is an invitation to interested parties of the Authority’s intention to undertake a competition with the aim of identifying a suitable supplier to assist the Authority in the generation and refinement of an outline specification for a Service Integration and Management (SIAM) for the Authority’s proposed new open data platform (ODP).
Interested parties should note that it is likely that the output specification materials arising from this competition will then be further developed for use in a subsequent invitation to tender to appoint a supplier of the eventual SIAM contract.
For the avoidance of doubt, interested parties should understand that the purpose of this PIN is to provide notice of both the initial competition to appoint a supplier for the generation and refinement of an outline specification for a SIAM service, and for the subsequent procurement competition, using a suitable EU Procurement procedure, to appoint a supplier of the SIAM contract.
Therefore, interested parties will want to note that the Authority does not propose to exclude the successful supplier for the development of a specification for the SIAM contract from also submitting a tender for providing the eventual SIAM Service.
The invitation to tender for the initial scoping work is likely to be issued using a Competitive Contract Notice which will also be published the contracts finder web site week commencing 10.9.2012, with an indicative budget in the region of 30 000 GBP.
This notice does not form part of a formal procurement process and the Authority reserves the right to decide whether or not to proceed with any related tendering procedure.
