Upgrade Ex Libris Library Management System

University of Nottingham | Published July 20, 2018
cpvs
48000000

An upgrade of the University's current Library Management System, Ex Libris, for up to 3 years for the upgrade and maintenance of its current library management system (LMS) to Ex Libris, a specialist in software for the library sector. II.1.6) Information about lots This contract is divided into lots: No II.2) Description II.2.2) Additional CPV code(s) 48000000 II.2.3) Place of performance NUTS code: UK Main site or place of performance: University of Nottingham (UK), University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC) and University of Nottingham Malaysia (UNNM) II.2.4) Description of the procurement The University intends to award a contract for up to three years for the upgrade and maintenance of its current library management system (LMS) to Ex Libris, a specialist in software for the library sector. This will upgrade from Ex Libris's Aleph, SFX, MetaLib and Verde products to their Alma product, thus reducing the need for multiple products. This system is owned, supplied and supported exclusively by Ex Libris. The current library management system, Aleph, is already integrated with Campus Solutions at UNNC and UNMC and a different system (with different technical architecture) would mean considerable additional development effort. Ex Libris are the only supplier who have an existing data centre in China and a proven support model for global campus operation. The implementation plan for the global solution shall commence in August 2018. The existing version of the system is several years old, meaning that the upgrade process will be overly complex and beyond the capability of the institution. As Ex Libris is the developer of the software, it is envisaged that this upgrade will be executed with minimal risk of technical failure and data and process migration for internal staff will be significantly reduced in a global environment. As alternate system would present significant financial, technical, quality and reputational risks for the University that could not be mitigated against. The Global reach is essential and the feasibility or ability to change is restricted by Suppliers who can promote the Global need and therefore when considering the relative benefit, the cost would outweigh the advantage that might accrue. Thus for reasons of timescale and staff capacity alongside core business activity, the only viable option is an upgrade through Ex Libris. II.2.11) Information about options Options: No II.2.13) Information about European Union funds The procurement is related to a project and/or programme financed by European Union funds: No Section IV: Procedure IV.1) Description IV.1.1) Type of procedure Award of a contract without prior publication of a call for competition in the Official Journal of the European Union Justification for selected award procedure: The procurement falls outside the scope of application of the Directive Explanation: The University intends to award a contract for up to three years for the upgrade and maintenance of its current library management system (LMS) supplied by Ex Libris, a specialist in software for the library sector. This will upgrade Ex Libris’ Aleph to their Alma [platform], and will mean we no longer require their DigiTool, SFX, or Verde products, reducing the need for maintenance of multiple products. Alma is owned, supplied, and supported exclusively by Ex Libris. The existing LMS, Aleph, is already deployed across all University of Nottingham campuses including UNNC and UNMC, and integrates with all appropriate University systems. The scale and complexity of the international technical architecture means that moving to a new system would mean considerable additional implementation and development effort. Aleph is over 20-years old and our version rather out-of-date, meaning that remaining with Aleph would be overly complex and beyond the capability of the institution. As Ex Libris are the developer of Alma, and the upgrade is tried and tested, it is envisaged that it will be executed with minimal risk of technical failure and data and process migration for staff will be significantly reduced across all three campuses. An alternate system would present significant technical, quality, and reputational risks for the University that could not be mitigated against. The substantial resource required to change LMS supplier is incompatible with the staff capacity available, and therefore when considering the relative benefit, the risk would outweigh any advantage that might accrue. The architecture of Alma lends itself to collaboration within the higher education community and presents opportunities for cost savings. Thus, for reasons of timescale and staff capacity alongside core business activity, the only viable option is an upgrade to Alma from Ex Libris. IV.1.8) Information about Government Procurement Agreement (GPA) The procurement is covered by the Government Procurement Agreement: No Section V: Award of contract/concession Contract No: PROC CCL ITT 1013 Title: Library Management System V.2 Award of contract/concession V.2.1) Date of conclusion of the contract/concession 04/07/2018 V.2.2) Information about tenders The contract has been awarded to a group of economic operators: No V.2.3) Name and address of the contractor Ex Libris UK Limited 03438440 5th Floor, 3 Dorset Rise London EC4Y 8EN UK NUTS: UK Internet address(es) URL: https://www.exlibrisgroup.com/ The contractor is an SME: No V.2.5) Information about subcontracting Section VI: Complementary information VI.3) Additional information The contracting authority waits for a period of at least 10 calendar days from the day following the date of publication for the VEAT Notice before concluding the contract.

Background The Department for Education's (DfE) vision is for a highly educated society in which opportunity is more equal for children and young people, no matter what their background or family circumstances. Some areas of the country and some types of school face particular difficulties in recruiting headteachers. Evidence suggests that failure to recruit a permanent, high quality headteacher can lead to performance dips for schools. The DfE has funded a High Potential Senior Leaders (HPSL) programme since 2006. The programme is designed to raise levels of pupil achievement in England’s challenging schools. It is targeted at attracting and developing aspiring and current high-potential senior leaders from all types of schools who have the talent and commitment to become headteachers of challenging schools within an accelerated timeframe. The new contract: The National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL), an executive agency of the DfE, is seeking one national provider (or consortium) to deliver the High Potential Senior Leaders (HPSL) programme to two existing cohorts. 1. The current HPSL contract with Future Leaders Trust (FLT) ends on 31 August 2016 and delivery would be required from September 2016 to cover the training requirements for two existing cohorts. This will involve the delivery of Year 3 to c101 participants, who will complete in 2017, and the delivery of Years 2 and 3 to c125 participants who will complete in 2018. 2. The anticipated maximum whole life contract cost will be within the estimated range of £2m and £3m GBP (inclusive of all expenses and exclusive of VAT). VAT (where applicable) will be at the GB prevailing rate. Please note that contract requirements will be subject to available financial resources, supplier performance and flexibility to meet changing demands. 3. Duration in months: a maximum of 30 months (up to and inclusive of September 2018) from the award of the contract. Subject to agreement from DfE Ministers, this will include an initial set up phase during April-July 2016, ready for commencement of programme delivery to existing participants from August 2016, and a close down phase from August to September 2018. The anticipated maximum whole life contract cost will be within the estimated range of £2m and £3m GBP (inclusive of all expenses and exclusive of VAT). VAT (where applicable) will be at the GB prevailing rate. Please note that contract requirements will be subject to available financial resources, supplier performance and flexibility to meet changing demands.

Background The Department for Education's (DfE) vision is for a highly educated society in which opportunity is more equal for children and young people, no matter what their background or family circumstances. This investment will contribute to the achievement of the DfE system goal: ‘Educational excellence, everywhere’ by 2020. It will do this by contributing towards 2 DfE delivery priorities: ‘improve recruitment by attracting and training new highly-skilled teachers’ and to ‘strengthen school leadership with a particular focus on a sufficient supply of leaders for our toughest areas’. The new contract. This contract will see government investment in the recruitment and training (in 2 cohorts) up to 4 200 new teachers to work in schools with low attaining pupils and/or high numbers of disadvantaged pupils. This is to help these schools close the gap in attainment between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. Trainees will be employed as unqualified teachers and would begin working in schools in September 2017 and 2018 in the cohorts in the initial term of the contract. They will benefit from one year's initial teacher training, then a second year employed as a newly qualified teacher. The 2017 cohort will then complete by July 2019; and the 2018 cohort by July 2020. Contract exit activity is expected to take until October 2020. Subject to satisfactory contractor performance; ministerial agreement; and availability of funding, there will be an option to extend the contract to deliver a further two cohorts (of up to 5 000 new teachers). This extension, would be into a new spending review period and will not be confirmed until 2018. Trainees will be employed as unqualified teachers and would begin working in schools in September 2019 and 2020 in the cohorts in the additional term. They will benefit from one year's initial teacher training, then a second year employed as a newly qualified teacher.

The places will be in England. Some places will be in Early Years settings.

Evidence suggests that failure to recruit a permanent, high quality headteacher can lead to performance dips for schools. The DfE has funded a High Potential Senior Leaders (HPSL) programme since 2006 as a targeted intervention which aims to improve the leadership of England's challenging schools by helping them to attract and develop aspiring or current senior leaders who have the commitment and potential to become headteachers in England's most challenging primary and secondary schools following completion of the programme. The new contract: The contract with the incumbent supplier expires on 31.8.2016 and a new contract is being tendered to enable recruitment from September 2015 of a new cohort for the academic year 2016/17. The National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL), an executive agency of the DfE, is therefore seeking 1 national provider (or consortium) to: 1) Support approximately 226 existing participants who will be part-way through the HPSL programme when the current contract expires.

Recruitment for this cohort would start in September 2017 with delivery starting in August 2018 and finishing in July 2021 and your organisation must be able to commit to delivery of this requirement should NCTL exercise its right under the Contract to request it. The anticipated maximum whole life contract cost will be within the estimated range of 12 000 000 GBP to 14 000 000 GBP (inclusive of all expenses and exclusive of VAT). The anticipated whole life contract cost covers the Initial Term of the contract plus the provision of an additional cohort if required by the NCTL. VAT (where applicable) will be at the GB prevailing rate. Please note that contract requirements will be subject to available financial resources, supplier performance and flexibility to meet changing demands. Duration in months: a maximum of 63 (from the award of the contract). Where delivery of an additional cohort is required, the Contract will be extended from the expiry of the Initial Term for a further period of up to a maximum of 12 months to accommodate delivery of the additional cohort. Any additional cohort will be subject to the continued support and funding by government and the satisfactory delivery of the programme and its outcomes in line with agreed key performance indicators and service level agreements.

Background: The Department for Education's (DfE) vision is for a highly educated society in which opportunity is more equal for children and young people, no matter what their background or family circumstances. Current research shows that ‘in-school' variation in teaching has the most significant effect on relative pupil outcomes and addressing the persistent tail of underachievement. High quality middle leadership is the essential element to delivering consistently excellent lessons in every classroom. The DfE has funded a High Potential Middle Leaders (HPML) secondary programme since 2011 as a targeted intervention which aims to provide middle leaders with training and coaching to develop in their current jobs, raise attainment within their schools and develop their potential for senior leadership. The new contract: The contract with the incumbent supplier expires on 31.7.2016 and a new contract is being tendered to enable recruitment activity from September 2015 of a new cohort for academic year 2016/17. The National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL), an executive agency of the DfE, is therefore seeking one national provider (or consortium) to: 1) support approximately 510 existing participants who will be part-way through the HPML programme when the current contract expires. This will involve the delivery of year 2 to those participants from August 2016 to July 2017; and 2) design, develop, market and deliver a new 2-year HPML programme to 2 new cohorts during the academic years 2016-2018 and 2017- 2019, reaching a minimum of 1 170 participants; 3) NCTL may also require the recruitment and delivery of an additional cohort covering the period 2017 to 2020. Recruitment for this cohort would start in September 2017 with delivery starting in August 2018 and finishing in July 2020 and your organisation must be able to commit to delivery of this requirement should NCTL exercise its right under the Contract to request it. The anticipated maximum whole life contract cost will be within the estimated range of 12 000 000 GBP to 17 000 000 GBP (inclusive of all expenses and exclusive of VAT). The anticipated whole life contract cost covers the Initial Term of the contract plus the provision of an additional cohort if required by the NCTL. VAT (where applicable) will be at the GB prevailing rate. Please note that contract requirements will be subject to available financial resources, supplier performance and flexibility to meet changing demands. Duration in months: a maximum of 51 months (from the award of the contract). Where delivery of an additional cohort is required, the Contract will be extended from the expiry of the Initial Term for a further period of up to a maximum of 12 months to accommodate delivery of the additional cohort. Any additional cohort will be subject to the continued support and funding by government and the satisfactory delivery of the programme and its outcomes in line with agreed key performance indicators and service level agreements.
