The Financial Markets Authority’s (FMA) principal objective is to promote and facilitate the development of fair, efficient and transparent financial markets. To do this we focus our resources on conduct that we think poses the most significant risk to that objective - utilising intelligence and research to identify potential problems, assess the likelihood that poor practice or non-compliance will occur, and considering its impact on the market. To support this approach we have recently been to market to select an advanced analytics platform (the SAS Detection and Investigation for Government platform).

We are now looking to grow our data analytics capability and are looking for a supplier to advance our analytics capability through the provision of SAS professional support services.

We are looking for a credible professional services provider with proven capability, experience and resource to ensure that the FMA makes full use of the SAS Detection and Investigation for Government platform with minimum technical risk.
The FMA are looking to set up automated business rules, predictive modelling, search and discovery, entity resolution, profiling, text summarisation and real time reporting, to name a few. However, it is important that the platform is configured to provide for the needs of a range of users i.e. it is intuitive to use and easily navigable for novice users whilst providing the full range of capabilities to experienced data analysts.
