UWE is placing this PIN for preliminary market consultation purposes only. It is not a formal tender or a call for competition. A subsequent procurement exercise may be undertaken. Further information will be available on the In-Tend portal (http://in-tendhost.co.uk/he/aspx/home).

UWE Bristol is seeking to source and implement a system which supports its current and evolving curriculum approval and review processes, and is the repository for the University's master course data, with support for implementation.

Interested parties are asked to request and complete an Expression of Interest Questionnaire by 14:00 on Tuesday 8.8.2017. Supporting documents can also be provided with your response. Details on how to do this are displayed in section VI.3 (the additional information section) of this PIN.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

UWE Bristol currently manages its curriculum approval and review processes via an outdated system. There is no workflow management or integration to the other University systems which rely on course data, such as the Student Information System (SIS), the web Content Management System (CMS) and the timetabling system.

The University is working on a business case for a new SIS (to replace a system based around a largely in-house solution), and is starting procurement for a new CMS. The University aims to meet demands for enhanced reporting to internal and external stakeholders. Course data is the foundation on which such student data is held, so solutions will need to support this, now and in the future. Over the course of 2017/8 the University is implementing a new hybrid data integration architecture to support the integration of data from our cloud-hosted IT systems with those on premise.
