410581-2012: UK-Edinburgh: Time accounting or human resources software package

On 1.10.2012, Edinburgh's Telford College, Stevenson College Edinburgh and Jewel & Esk College merged to form Edinburgh College, which is now the largest college in Scotland. Post-merger, Edinburgh College operates with a number of separate human resource and payroll systems and intends to standardise its operational requirements into one integrated human resource and payroll system. This system is required to support the college's human resource and payroll processes and to provide accurate and coherent reporting tools. An implementation date (i.e. the single integrated system is in use, fully operational and functional across all four campuses) of 1.8.2013 is required, at which point full testing, data transfer, training and integration must be complete.
The Report of the Review of Further Education Governance in Scotland led by Professor Russel Griggs was published in 2012 and has led to a significant shift towards a Regional structure for colleges. At this time there are a number of both merger and federation models developing in the sector and some of which may also be required to review HR and payroll systems as part of the move to a Regional structure. The Framework Agreement which results from this procurement will be available to all APUC member and members of affiliated HE procurement consortia.
