The Programme seeks dedicated technical maintenance as well as the further development and improvement of the IT platform used for its programme monitoring. We would like to receive expressions of interest from companies, consortia and/or individuals capable of delivering the assignment to provide a profile of their qualifications, resources, and references to previously delivered projects of a similar nature. No price information is requested at this stage, as this Request for Expressions of Interest is not a solicitation.

Starting in 2017, the U-LEAD with Europe Programme has tailored a monitoring system, using the best collection of IT tools available.

  • MariaDB
  • Elasticsearch
  • PHP
  • Limesurvey
  • Custom Java 8 Spring Web Application with Angular4 UI
  • Apache Zeppelin 0.7

 As of 1 August 2018, Programme intends to hand over the technical maintenance for the IT platform to a local IT service provider, for which a 12 month contract shall be established after formal tendering process. Key tasks of the contract shall be (1) maintaining the delivered IT platform with dedicated support and (2) further developing/improving elements of the IT platform’s various tools. Complete details of the requirements shall be included in the tender documents.
