This is the main working age for the IRMS eWorking Group. The Purpose of the group is to progress the Societies project to implement a new e-platform (including new website) to assist members and the working of the Society. This page will be updated with key information, contact details and updates on our progress. Also keep an eye out for details of how you help get involved when we look for testers of the new website before launch hopefully later this year (2016).
One of the key aspects of the IRMS is its website. A few years ago we moved from one site to our current one and now, as time and technology has evolved, it is time to migrate to another one to keep up with the times.
The IRMS is therefore looking to revamp its current website for the benefit of our members and our volunteers that maintain and use the site. We are inviting suppliers of website design and hosting to work with us on this to meet our spec to deliver and maintain a user friendly, technology adaptable website for the Society.
Below is a link to an invitation to tender document that outlines at a reasonably high level what the website project is looking to achieve and what suppliers we are looking for to help us get there and maintain it going forward.
The tendering process will be as follows (all dates may be subject to minor amendments):
|1||Request for tender documents issued||25th March 2016|
|2||Tenders returned to IRMS – the tenderer will supply a compliant tender including a fixed price for the entire scope of supply.||22nd April 2016 (4 weeks)|
|3||Preferred tenderers notified – three preferred tenderers will be selected on the basis of the tender assessment criteria noted in section 1.6 of the tender document||20th May 2016 (4 weeks)|
|4||Clarification – the three preferred tenderers will be asked to clarify any questions the project group may have in preparation for the Executive Committee review.||On or around 10th June 2016|
|5||Submission of final quote & proposal||17th June 2016|
|6||Notification of successful tenderer||On or around 1st July|
|7||Contracting process||week commencing 4th July|
