Description of the Service:
The contract is for the supply, installation and maintenance of a laptop locker system.
A student will use a smart locker system to borrow, via self-issue using their UCL ID/Library Card and their library personal identification number (PIN), a laptop computer.
UCL plans to pilot the laptop locker system in two locations that will form the pilot phase
12 laptops available for loan at the Royal Free Medical Library
24 laptops available for loan at the UCL Main Library, Wilkins Building
If the pilot is successful, it is envisaged that the supply will grow substantially from this pilot phase over the next 2-3 years, with a likely total of 150-200 laptops in use via this locker system by 2015/16. If the pilot phase is successful, this framework agreement will then be used to provide further lockers as the initiative is rolled out.
Note that there is no guarantee of any further orders beyond the initial pilot stage. Also note that the contract does not include the supply of laptops.
