LLWR Sites — West Cumbria.
LLWR has a requirement for a managed service proposition to deliver the hosting, network and service desk solutions for the ICT services within the business. The business currently operates a Microsoft platform covering servers and desktops based across a (currently shared) centrally hosted platform handing both back-office and telephony solutions. This is delivered via an MPLS WAN carrying both IP and telephony service. LLWR currently intends to bundle its requirements into 3 lots, a structure designed to support the opportunity for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to bid, and also enable provision of a single supplier solution from those that wish to bid for all lots. Suppliers will be able to bid for one, two or all lots.
LLWR plans to award the contract in December 2017, with go-live in September/October 2018. The current proposed contract length is 3+1+1 in addition to the transition period.
A pre-document Supplier Engagement Day is planned for Tuesday 11.7.2017 in central Manchester (http://centralworking.com/locations/manchester). At this event LLWR will lay out the proposed procurement process, lot structure and specification at a high-level. There will be the opportunity for a Q&A with technical and procurement experts, and 1:1 meeting (duration tbc). Please contact email@example.com to register your interest in attending the Supplier Engagement Day, further details will be sent prior to the event. Please note, no more than 2 people per supplier will be able to attend the event, and the closing date to register to attend is Friday 7.7.2017. Whilst every effort will be made to accommodate all interested suppliers regarding 1:1 meetings, there is limited time available, so suppliers are recommended to register their interest as soon as possible.
Please note that all details including dates, lotting information and contract length is provided as an indication of LLWR's current intentions — these details may change as LLWR develops the ITT suite of documents, and through its interaction with the market.
