MSD uses several business applications and systems to deliver its core business, these have been implemented utilising IBM Cúram (including IBM Cúram Social Program Management and IBM Cúram Universal Access) and using Agile thinking and the Scaled Agile Framework for Enterprise to support agile product delivery. These applications require specialised technical support and resources to maintain the system.
Currently, MSD has limited internal capability and resource to provide support and maintenance for these applications. We are looking to establish a panel of 3rd party suppliers (the Panel) that can provide expert IBM Cúram technical resources to MSD on a programme increment by programme increment basis. The specific roles and services identified to support our IBM Cúram based products are:
1) Systems Developers:
• Senior-level systems developers (a minimum 5 years’ experience in IBM Cúram developer role)
• Intermediate-level IBM Cúram systems developers (a minimum 3 years’ experience in IBM Cúram developer role)
2) Business Analysts
• Senior-level IBM Cúram business analysts (a minimum 4 years’ experience working on various IBM Cúram modules)
• Intermediate-level IBM Cúram specialist business analysts (a minimum 2 years’ experience working on various IBM Cúram modules).
We are not seeking responses from providers that do not supply IBM Cúram technical resources.
Suppliers who are successful in this RFP will be the inaugural participants of the Panel and will be awarded a 6-year contract. The Panel will be open to new suppliers, and MSD will hold open invitation every 2 years to allow new suppliers to participate in this panel. Please refer to the RFP document (attached) for further information.
