The office of the Controller and Auditor-General needs to replace its current e-library platform with an Integrated Library System (ILS). According to tender documents released this week the office wants to enhance its library services and begin internal processing activities.
It currently uses DBTextworks databases and there are 7500 bibliographic records in the databases. The library shares a five user licence with a Records team, who also use DBTextworks. Because of this integration, the platform can’t be upgraded without compromising the records management operations.
The office wants a system that will offer more flexibility and functionality.
It should also be adaptable with state of the art technology that can be upgraded in the future. The office also wants a system that can be modified without changing the programme source code.
The deadline for replies is Friday, June 26. More details are available on the Government Electronic Tenders website under ICCNZ reference 26092.
