Award of Intranet Replacement Contract
Exempt report of the Corporate Director (Resources, Environment and Cultural Services) on the award of contract for the supply and maintenance of an intranet platform.
(1) The Decision Taken
Cabinet approved a three-year contract for the supply and maintenance of an intranet platform with SORCE Ltd.
(2) Reasons for the Decision
The current intranet is built using SharePoint 2003 which is no longer supported by Microsoft. This has resulted in increased issues of incompatibility with modern browsers, security and accessibility, so must be replaced.
The Council required a 3rd party contractor to supply and maintain an intranet platform which would enhance the use of Office 365 and SharePoint Online providing an easy to use intranet available to all staff and Members from any device.
