Public Sector Network Tender Alert



The final date and time for the submission of bids is Monday 24th August 2020 at 14:00 DO NOT apply directly to the buyer. All tender information MUST be submitted through the Delta eSourcing Portal. Brief Description of Requirement Introduction British Antarctic Survey (BAS) recruitment and appraisal processes are inefficient, and they are not as accessible to staff and candidates as they should be. It was also determined that the system should not be restricted to those two areas therefore, a wider HR System is sought. Background to the Requirement BAS uses a shared business centre for some HR functions. What you might term 'Core HR' e.g. contracts, personnel details (which would be imported from Oracle), absence, payroll...these will probably not be served by the new system, but if these options are there it gives us the possibility of use in the future. We used to have an in-house recruiting system, but it fell foul of the GDPR regulations when they were introduced so we are left with a manual system i.e. Excel based tracking, CVs, applications & documents must be downloaded from a repository manually & re-named. All these documents are then sent out to recruiting teams by email, subsequent communication is by email. As you might imagine it is all very time consuming. Initially we sought a recruitment module but that then expanded to performance management because our current appraisal system is paper based, email communication again. A brief outline of the BAS structure: 550 staff, mainly Cambridge based staff. Please ensure you review all attached information to ensure a full understanding of this requirement.
