The objective of this tender exercise is to source an IT strategic technology partner to provide professional services for a range of technological solutions at The National Archives (TNA).
Our aim is to work in partnership with a supplier who will provide additional, ad-hoc resources to complement TNA’s existing IT Operations team in key areas such as technology architecture and IT investment initiatives that contribute to us achieving the objectives that support our IT Strategic Plan.
We intend to award a contract for an initial period of 2 years, with an option to extend for up to 2 additional periods of up twelve months each (2+1+1).
TNA, which operates from a single site in Kew, Surrey, anticipates total demand for professional services over the duration of this contract will not exceed a combined sum of £250,000 excluding VAT but makes no commitment to any minimum level of expenditure during the contract period. We envisage the potential supplier will operate on a fixed cost per engagement basis within agreed terms and conditions based on delivery of a defined piece of work.
