Wales Millennium Centre – Cashless Hospitality EPOS System
Published by: Wales Millennium Centre
Deadline Date: 19/04/2021

Wales Millennium Centre is going through an exciting digital transformation with changes planned that will improve the way the Centre operates and the service it provides. The opportunity to purchase Snacks and Beverage and a variety of Merchandise will be a key factor in the customer experience during their visit. An EPOS system will therefore play a core role in servicing the multiple theatre bars and cabaret style spaces within the building. It has been decided that WMC catering facilities will go completely cashless with payments only being accepted by Credit and Debit cards or Mobile Phone payments such as Apple and Google Pay. It is also envisaged that WMC will have its own closed loop Pre-payment card as a one-off purchase and would look at ways to integrate the current Members card so it can be used as a “purse” to load and decrement via a cloud account.

Organisational IT hardware and software review for Wrexham-based charity
Published by: Caia Park Partnership Ltd (CPP)
Deadline Date: 16/04/2021

Conducting a review of CPP's PCs, servers, network and software – Spring 2021

Outline specification of services required:

Introduction

Caia Park Partnership (CPP) is a community development charity based in Wrexham. It delivers a range of community services across the county borough including youthwork, education, childcare, older persons’ support, tenancy support, a community café and meeting space, volunteering and community learning.

CPP has approximately 65 staff of whom 45 are regular PC users. CPP has staff spread across 7 physical locations as well as an increasing number who work regularly from home.

CPP was formed more than 20 years ago and has taken an ad-hoc approach to expanding its use of IT, often driven by the start of delivering a new service, adding an additional member of staff, or acquiring new premises. Our systems are therefore a patchwork of solutions and they are starting to hinder rather than help us to deliver our work.

Consequently, CPP is looking to engage an IT advisor who can review our current systems, make recommendations about how to make improvements, and produce an action plan to see the agree improvements being made.
Budget and timescale

CPP has a maximum budget available for this review and plan of £3,000 including VAT.
We are aiming to start the review during week commencing 26th April, and anticipate it running for approximately 6 weeks to allow it to be concluded in mid June.

Scope

The scope of the review is:

A. Our user hardware base – a mix of windows desktop and laptop PCs, a small number of MAC OS devices, and a small number of android tablets.

B. Our centralised network infrastructure – a dedicated windows server with portable hard-drive backup, ethernet and wifi network access points.

C. Our email system – MS Exchange-driven, with some staff using MS 365.

D. Our file sharing system – currently server based with some staff using cloud-based solutions.

E. The appropriateness and adequacy of our contracted-out IT support arrangements.
Anticipated tasks

The tasks perceived as being necessary to conduct the review and produce the plan include:

1. An inception meeting with CPP’s management team
2. 2 initial site visits to see the systems being used (Cover-19 secure)
3. 6-8 phone/video interviews with staff who use the current systems
4. The holding of 2-3 video focus group sessions with teams who use the current systems
5. The production of an interim report drawing together the strengths and weaknesses of our current arrangements
6. The development of packages of options for an anticipated implementation investment in phases of £5k by October 2021 and a further £10k by October 2022.
7. The facilitation of decisions by the management team about priorities within this planned £15k total spend.
8. The production of a final report including an action plan to support the phased implementation.
Providing a quote

Written quotations are invited that address the scope and tasks above within the £3k budget and within the timeframe specified.

Interested respondents should include a brief summary of similar commissions they have undertaken in the last 3 years and provide a reference that relates to one of these commissions.

Quotations should be provided via email to [email protected] by Friday 16th April 2021. Selection will be based on quality.
