2.2

Description of the goods or services required

The University has implemented a five year programme, OneSource, to procure and implement a single-supplier enterprise resource planning (ERP) product to support the review, improvement and integration of our student, research and administrative processes. This approach will ultimately replace our current individual Student Records, Admissions, Research Management, Human Resources, Payroll and Pensions, Finance and Procurement systems into one coordinated structure to more effectively manage the applicant–student–alumni life-cycle, staff research, human resources and finance across the University.

The product chosen for this is Unit 4’s Agresso. Individual projects within the OneSource programme will be scheduled according to priority. The first two projects, ‘Finance’ (including institutional finance and accounting functionality, student financial management and research financial management) and ‘The Student Lifecycle’, began in January 2013.

You are invited to tender for the provision of expert services for a period of 6 months to support interfacing of the University systems to Unit 4 systems. The expert services should be based on previous knowledge of similar University applications utilising Oracle technology. It is anticipated that approximately 120 day’s consultancy will be required during this 6 month period.
