Liverpool City Council is on the hunt for up to 17 resellers to supply a range of IT hardware, software and services which could total almost £12m.
According to a recent tender document, the council outlined details of its ICT Services Framework, which will last for three years, with the option to extend for a further 12 months.
The IT will be spread across schools in the area and across the city in general when the deal commences on 1 March next year.
The estimated total for the framework is £2.8m but there is a potential total value of £11.2m if all lots are extended for the further year.
The framework is split into seven lots with varying estimated values: Lot 1, Hardware, £730 000; Lot 2, Software, £600,000; Lot 3, Professional Services, £12,500; Lot 4, Support and Maintenance, £100,000; Lot 5, e-Catalogue, £90,000; Lot 6, Schools Hardware, £1.2m; and Lot 7, Schools Software, £65,000.
The council plans to appoint a maximum of 17 suppliers to the framework and they can bid for a minimum of one Lot. The bids will evaluated based mainly on the price they can offer but the quality of the kit will also be a consideration.
