Public Sector Network Tender Alert


Retractable computer desks and computers

The School is looking to replace ICT equipment and furniture in three ICT classrooms, located on the first floor of a listed Victorian building. Access is via staircases, and there are no lift facilities. The classrooms are all between 50 and 60 square metres. We require 30 student computer desk units in each of the three classrooms (90 units in total). These require functionality to convert into normal desks for non-computer work, for example via retractable computer units. Conversion would ideally be via teacher-operated electronic means, rather than individual manual mechanisms, so as to avoid mechanical breakage through student misuse. Also required are 3 teacher computer desks/podiums, which will allow for work whilst standing. Tenders are invited for desks alone, or for desks and computers. 93 computers will be required (1 per desk). As a guide, our research suggests that computers with specification similar to the following would be suited to our requirements: Intel® Core™ i5-6500, Intel® HD Graphics 530, 8 GB SDRAM, 256 GB SSD. All relevant cables and equipment should be included to bring these to a functional state. The contract will include supply and installation of all units to a ready-to-use state. The school will ensure that all electrical and data requirements are in place prior to installation, to suit the successful supplier's specification. Installation can commence on 21st August 2017, and we require the classrooms to be fully operational by 31st August 2017, in readiness for the new academic year.
