II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The objective of this call for tenders is the introduction of an OnPremise product solution for an Enterprise Information Management System. This includes document management software, document management, metadata management and maintenance, electronic archiving of documents and other electronic information objects, as well as IT technical support for the definition and processing of workflows related to documents or other documentation objects held in the system, as well as the necessary set-up, configuration, training, documentation and roll-out services. For the sake of simplicity in the text, the term ‘documents’ also covers information or documentation objects which do not correspond to the apparent document nature. Service also includes system maintenance and interface and configuration services in accordance with the EVB-IT contract.

The product must support the maintenance of files and operations for document management, whereby the definition of files and operations can be both statically based on a filing plan and dynamically based on collections of metadata and/or content.

The product shall include the whole life cycle of a document from production and/or setting from third-party systems, management, versioning, digital long-term archiving and GDPR-compliant destruction, both at the level of the document and its descriptive data and data structures.

As one of Germany’s largest infrastructure managers, in addition to the above-mentioned requirements, the main focus is on the possibility of geo-referenced searching for information and documents. The product must make the management based on geodetic data available in an integrated manner, depending on the classification characteristics of a document, file or process.

The product must be integrated into the system landscape of the Federal Motorway GmbH and act as a central exchange and access point for some 100 specialist applications and some 15 000 colleagues. The integration of the specialist applications shall be implemented in synchronous procedures according to the state of the art, if this is supported by the specialist application.

However, it must be possible for the solution to be used in dispersed locations and in various stationary and mobile client workstations to be operated as a central authority in a data centre provided by the contracting authority.

The details of the subject of the procurement are set out in Annex ‘Annex 2 to the EVB-IT contract – A – Terms of reference DMS’.
