Section I: Contracting authority
Main address: www.cwgc.org
Section II: Object
Supply of a Human Resources Information System
Supply and on-going support of a Human Resources Information System.
Mainly Maidenhead, but system will be used in Commission offices across the world, in particular France, Belgium and Cyprus (See Section II.2.4 below).
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) is responsible for the commemoration of almost 1 700 000 members of the Commonwealth forces who gave their lives in the two world wars. CWGC cares for cemeteries and memorials at 23 000 locations, in 154 countries.
The Commission is headquartered in Maidenhead (United Kingdom) and employs approx. 1250 people across five main global areas as follows:
— Africa and Asia Pacific Area (AAPA),
— Mediterranean Area (MA),
— Western Europe Area (WEA),
— UK and Northern Area (UKNA),
The Commission is currently using CIPHR as their Central HR System Information System (HRIS) in the UK, supplemented with various local databases, spread sheets and manual recording processes. In addition, local payroll solutions are in place for some countries.
CWGC is looking to replace it's current solution and processes with a unified global HRIS solution whilst continuing to use local payroll providers to ensure compliance with country specific legislation.
As a minimum, potential tenderers will be required to meet the Global HRIS high level requirements as follows:
— Operate in multiple languages,
— Manage multiple currency,
— Interface with a range of local payroll providers,
— Manager and Employee Self Service,
— Core HR Administration,
— Sickness / Absence Management,
— Learning and Development – Performance Management and Appraisals,
— Recruitment and Applicant Tracking,
— Reporting / Management Information and Analytics.
Potential tenderers are not required to express their interest at this stage. A formal Contract Notice, with full details of the requirement and how to participate in the tender, will be issued on or after the estimated date for publication — see Section II.3 below.
