About the work

About the work
Opportunity attribute name Opportunity attribute value
Why the work is being done To conduct a GP IT refresh to our 45 GP practices spread over 47 sites.
To include procuring 742 new PCs, and adding additional RAM to 138 devices already in Situ. Both sets of devices are to migrate to Windows 10. Furthermore a CCG IT refresh of an additional 70 Desktop PCs and 20 Laptops with Docking stations need to be procured, built and installed.
This is to be completed by March 31st.
Problem to be solved Due to the impending withdrawal of Microsoft support for Windows 7, effective from 14/01/2020, and the pressing need to improve security across the GP surgery networks and devices, we need to conduct a windows 10 migration.
This ensures the security and reliability of our desktop and laptop machines.
As part of this process, we will take the opportunity to enhance the security of the GP surgery desktop and network environments, and put in place better management systems to improve the service and support provided to end users.
Who the users are and what they need to do The end users are GP practice staff.
This project requires the replacement of the devices within the GP practice in both clinical and administrative areas.
The user will require a technology refresh and onsite basic training on the new windows 10 operating system.
Early market engagement
Any work that’s already been done A discovery phase has completed and audit of both the GP and CCG devices and highlighted the devices that need replacing.
A high level design of the infrastructure and server interoperability has also been conducted.
There is a prepared build image and methods to deploy in place already.
Existing team The existing in house team includes programme management and a technical project manager.

Questions asked by suppliers

Questions asked by suppliers
Supplier question Buyer answer
1. We note there is a question and answer conference call session planned for Wednesday 2 Jan – please can you confirm a time as there is none stated? The question and answer call is Wednesday 2nd January at 3.00- 5.00.
2. The latest start date for this project is published as 14/01/19 and the expected contract length as 9 months. However, the 'why the work is being done' section also states the project is to be completed by 31/03/19. Please could you clarify the required project dates and also indicate the budget you have for this project? The expected length is around 9 months but flexible resourcing is required as once phase 1 ( implementing windows 10 to 5 pilot GP's) is complete a more intense rollout plan needs to be completed.
The initial 31/3/19 date is more around the financial planning.
As for budget a suitable amount is available, but the overall costing, this is a part of the assessment criteria, so we are looking for a supplier that delivers the requirements rather than just meeting a budget line.
