OD/16/63 Contract to Upgrade Agresso to Milestone 6

Decision Maker: Officer Decision

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

The current finance system Agresso had been identified as requiring replacement or upgrade to deliver improvements in financial reporting and to ensure continued compliance with the Public Sector Network (PSN)

 

The Council put out a tender for a combined HR / Finance system in 2016. None of the resulting bids were successful due either to non-compliance or budget restrictions.

 

In order to ensure continued compliance with the PSN it is necessary to upgrade the current system to the latest version (Milestone 6) on a like for like basis.

 

The decision is to appoint technical consultants to undertake the upgrade without a formal tender process due to the urgency of the work. However, a comparative quote has been received for the work, and whichever consultant employed will be obliged to undertake a scoping exercise to provide a comparative estimate, and satisfy value for money requirements.
