The Centre for Global Eco-Innovation is the only centre of its kind in Europe and is part financed by the European Regional Development Fund. It brings together the expertise, resources and global contacts of Lancaster University and the University of Liverpool, together with international commercialisation consultancy Inventya Ltd. SME-led collaborative R&D partnership with two world-ranking universities underpin the development of new products, processes and services for the global marketplace, which by virtue of their use, manufacture, raw materials, reuse or disposal, deliver positive environmental impacts.

Inventya now wishes to invite competitive tenders for the provision of IT support services for the CGE Programme, which will be supplied on an interim part-time basis.  The contract will commence in April and run to 11th  December 2015.

The proposed start date for the project is early April.  The successful tender is expected to include a dedicated project manager, who will have a hands-on approach, with exceptional interpersonal skills and the ability to develop a strong working relationship with the CGE staff. The service agreement is expected to last until December 2015 and may be extended (subject to funding). As the programme is part-funded by the ERDF, this tender and any subsequent contract is subject to on-going confirmation of such funding.

The indicative contract value is £2,000 +VAT (including expenses and disbursements).

Please note that the indicative value is not the budget and only provides the service providers with guidance as to the depth of work required, for which value should be demonstrated.
