Provision of Two New, Fully Integrated radio-HPLC systems

Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre (WBIC) | Published December 18, 2015  -  Deadline December 18, 2015

1 Background 1.1 Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre (WBIC) is part of the Department of Clinical Neurosciences, the University of Cambridge. WBIC is licensed by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Authority (MHRA) for manufacturing short-lived radiopharmaceuticals for clinical and preclinical PET imaging studies. In the nearby Molecular Imaging Chemistry Laboratory low activity level radiochemistry research is carried out. 1.2 The requirement for two radio-HPLC systems arose from the need to perform accurate radiochemical characterisation of in vivo metabolic profile of radiolabelled compounds with PET radioisotopes in plasma samples. 2 Scope of Requirements 2.1 WBIC requires two new, fully integrated, high performance liquid chromatography systems coupled to radiochemical detectors (radio-HPLC systems), more fully described in Section 3 of this tender. The solution is to provide support for two laboratories to perform metabolic stability studies in both human and small animal samples of plasma. 3 Equipment Demonstrations 3.1 It is the University’s intention to complete the tender evaluation in such time that the contract for this equipment could be awarded within 2 weeks of the tender closing date.

CPU 1289 A Concession to Access Duct Assets to deliver Telecommunications Services

Nottingham City Council | Published December 16, 2015  -  Deadline December 4, 2015

Nottingham City Council is undertaking a programme of investment in strategic transport routes to encourage expansion of its key growth sectors. These include highway improvements but also the construction of two new tram lines which were completed in August 2015. At the same time the Council has also taken the opportunity to install telecoms ducting along these routes to take advantage of substantially lower installation costs, and to avoid future disruption. It is now aiming to achieve a long term income stream from these ducting assets whilst at the same time encouraging investment to enhance the city’s connectivity and especially for small businesses. Nottingham is fast becoming a hub of creative activity in sectors such as life sciences, clean tech and digital media. To support this growth a modern cost effective telecommunications infrastructure capable of offering low cost ‘gigabit’ connectivity is seen as an essential key factor. To this end the Council intends to offer exclusive use of these specified assets to a single telecoms operator through a concession agreement with the option of securing future ducting routes when they are completed. It is particularly interested in finding a telecoms operator who will; - target the high growth Small to Medium Enterprises (SME) market and especially in the key growth sectors located along the ducting routes. - bring improvement to the city centre which is currently not served by ‘super-fast’ services. The concession will aim to achieve the maximum revenue for the Council as well as seeking a solution that can also have real impact on business growth in the areas where new services are delivered. While the council is ideally looking for a commercial operator who can maximise the return on investment for the council, the quality of the proposed solution – measured by its likely impact on business growth - will also be an important consideration. It is expected that the contract duration will be for 20 years.

LSC2192-Chamber Sound Reinforcement System

Broadcast Office | Published December 28, 2015  -  Deadline December 28, 2015

The Houses of Parliament (“the Authority”) wish to explore upgrading the sound systems in both the Commons and Lords Chambers. The current systems, which have seen long service and are now due for replacement, provide sound reinforcement within the Chambers, and send audio feeds to the Official Reports ("Hansard") and global TV/radio broadcasters. The Authority wishes to engage with systems integrators and suppliers of appropriate audio equipment to determine the potential scope and timescale of the works. The Authority also wishes to consider replacing the central digital core (matrix) of the existing system in advance of replacing the amplifier electronics and other components to establish any timescale advantages of this approach. The House Chambers have some unique constraints: • Unlike many more modern chambers, the seating consists substantially of parallel rows of benches opposite each other. Apart from some designated positions such as the Speaker’s chairs and the Despatch Box tables, Members are generally free to sit and speak from anywhere • The placing and design of any microphones, loudspeakers or other equipment would need to be approved in line with the grade 1 heritage status of the Palace of Westminster • At times the Chambers may be occupied by 650 or more Members and there can be a lot of ambient noise, while at other times the chambers will be less busy and the noise level will be far lower. • The Members and the public depend on the high performance and reliability that the current systems have offered, and solutions must match or improve on that quality and reliability Some features that are important include: • Simple, tactile controls and some automation for the sound operators • Wide dynamic range capability for sound reinforcement and broadcasting due to very low background noise • All loudspeakers individually driven, allowing the sound reinforcement to be time delayed to each seat position, automatically configured as each microphone is selected • Remote privacy controls, loudness management, data logging and status displays for broadcasting operators • Hearing loop systems with appropriate coverage • Ambient microphone feed with intentionally ‘indistinct’ voice clarity to send to broadcasters during votes • Inherently reliable ‘no fail’ systems formed from resilient redundant components. The Authority is particularly interested in solutions that: • Are highly resilient, reliable and long-lasting • Use off-the-shelf interchangeable components where possible and appropriate • Use industry-standard protocols which, for example, integrate fully with the broadcasting technology in use • Are simple to use and maintain, and to configure • Can be maintained long term and by in-house staff and outsourced contractors The Authority therefore invite suppliers that have experience in the design, supply, installation and maintenance of such systems to express interest in attending a suppliers' site event to be held on the morning of 23 February 2015, or to make suggestions directly to the Authority on potential solutions they consider may be appropriate. Suppliers interested in attending a site event should contact the Authority by noon on Monday 9 February.

PI1300501 UK Parliament Annunciator Graphics Replacement Project

Parliamentary Digital Service | Published January 15, 2016  -  Deadline January 29, 2016

The UK Parliament has a requirement for the delivery of an Annunciator Graphics Replacement Project. The Annunciator Graphics system is an electronic signage system that provides details of the current proceedings in the main and secondary chambers for the House of Commons and the House of Lords. Additional information about forthcoming Parliamentary business is also displayed, and security and emergency notices can be shown as required. The service is distributed (narrowcast) across the Parliamentary estate and extended to Whitehall using the Annunciator distribution system (TV Distribution). The Annunciator distribution system is supported by the Parliamentary Estates Directorate and a project to replace the system was completed in 2014/2015. The project will require the delivery of a Minimal Viable Product (MVP) to replace the existing Annunciator Graphics solution that supports delivery of the digital sign services for the House of Commons and House of Lords. After completion of the MVP, it will require an upgrade of the installed solution to meet the aim of integrated operation. Please see the tender documents for further details. Please note your completed tenders are to be returned no later than 12:00 noon Friday 29 January 2016.

Provision of Residential Accommodation for the Language Academy

Customer Name | Published December 18, 2015  -  Deadline December 18, 2015

The Language Academy at the University of Central Lancashire organises a range of courses for international students, language teachers and professional clients. The majority of the Language Academy's students are undergraduates from UCLan’s partner institutions in China, S. Korea and Japan, we also have students from other parts of the world and our clientele is expanding year on year. In addition to university students, we also run courses for language teachers and other professional people such as business people. In most cases, the Language Academy offers international students and other clients a package consisting of tuition, accommodation and leisure activities. We therefore need a reliable, local provider of high-quality accommodation to meet the sometimes quite exacting requirements of our students and clients. Students will usually stay in the accommodation for periods of between one and eight weeks, though we do sometimes have courses lasting several months. The majority of Language Academy courses take place during UCLan’s summer vacation, between late June and the end of August, in addition we have smaller numbers of students requiring accommodation year-round. The highest volume of accommodation required at any one time is likely to be around 160 single rooms in the mid-summer period. We are usually able to provide outline accommodation requirements about three months in advance and fairly firm numbers at least a month before the accommodation is required but the nature of our business means that we are not always able to provide completely accurate figures until closer to course dates. We are also looking to source the same type of accommodation, though on a smaller scale, between late January and March, when we run a Winter school for students from S.E. Asia. Highest volume at this time is likely to be 50-60 single rooms. Since accommodation plays such a significant role in an international student’s experience here in Preston, we are looking for a provider who has experience of working with international students, is sympathetic to aspects of cultural difference and can provide a welcoming, secure and comfortable environment. The Language Academy at UCLan is seeking an accommodation partner who can meet the following requirements: • Be located within easy walking distance of the UCLan Preston city campus and Preston city centre. • Provide modern, clean, furnished, single occupancy, ensuite, self-catering accommodation for international students and professional people attending Language Academy courses at UCLan. • Have a Reception area, staffed at certain times of day, to deal with enquiries and problems. • Bedroom furniture to include bed, wardrobe, desk, chair and bedside cabinet. • Bathroom fittings to include toilet, shower and washbasin. • Rent to include the provision of bedding and towels, which are changed weekly. • Provide communal kitchen facilities, shared with a maximum of 8 other people. • Kitchen equipment to include microwave, oven, fridge freezer, basic cooking and eating utensils and crockery. • Rent to include all utility bills and cost of high speed broadband access in the bedrooms. • Ensure a safe and secure environment for students with 24/7 security presence and CCTV. • Provide a communal leisure area with TV. • Self-service laundry facilities. • Ensure rapid response to any maintenance problems. • Provide wheelchair access if required. This is an Open EU procurement procedure, the ITT and full specification and supporting documents can be downloaded by registering and expressing your interest on the University's e-tendering system If you have any questions or comments in relation to this tender they must be submitted via the In-tend portal. Completed tenders must be returned through the same e-tendering system. The closing date for return of the tender is 18th December 2015 at 10am (UK time). Firms are invited to study the requirement outlined in the tender documentation and provide their best bid to meet the needs identified.
