throughout the world. This book dissects the shocking statistics about pay
inequality - and details the many initiatives being taken to resolve the
problem once and for all.


*Solutions: The Benefits of Fair Pay*In 30 authoritative chapters,
the book examines both the causes and the effects of low pay on staff and
institutions alike. And sets out strategies to secure the benefits which
fair and equitable pay bring.

[MCN-L] CMS and DAMS Request for Information from QAGOMA in Australia

2019-09-19 Thread Keir Winesmith


Hi all

This is one for the great GLAM vendors out there from the _Queensland
Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art_ in Brisbane, Australia.

--

QAGOMA
 welcomes submissions from vendors who can provide software, either as
a single solution, or combined solution for the two software
applications that they are planning to implement, being:

1.  a Collection Management System (CMS
) with a turnkey Collection Online web interface;

2.  a Digital Asset Management System (DAMS). 

QAGOMA
 has an open mind on how this is integrated and would like to hear
from vendors who could supply either a DAMS and/or a CMS
 solution and can demonstrate the ability to integrate with another
application to deliver a seamless overall solution.

QAGOMA’s
 objective in conducting this Request for Information (RFI
) process is to review the capability and suitability of each RFI
 respondent (Suppliers) to perform the required services.  After the
RFI
 process, QAGOMA
 may, in its absolute discretion, select a shortlist of Suppliers to
whom a detailed Invitation to Offer (ITO) will be sent.  Nothing in
this RFI
 prevents QAGOMA
 from selecting no Suppliers to shortlist.

The selected Suppliers may be required to submit tender proposals
which include planned resources, work method, price and other detailed
information. 

This selection will be undertaken in a two-stage process. 

STAGE 1:  RFI EVALUATION & SHORTLIST (THIS RFI PROCESS)  

RFI
 submissions will be evaluated as per the Evaluation Criteria provided
with this RFI
 and Suppliers will be shortlisted accordingly.  The number of
shortlisted participants is at the absolute discretion of QAGOMA
.

STAGE 2:  INVITATION TO OFFER (ITO PROCESS)  

Following the completion of development of the final QAGOMA
 CMS
/DAMS Project Business Requirements Document, the ITO will be
forwarded to the shortlisted Suppliers for submission of a tender to
undertake the CMS
/DAMS project.   

The successful Supplier(s) selected during the ITO process will be
engaged under General Contract Conditions –
 ICT
 Products and Services –
 Version 1.0.0 (under the Queensland Information Technology Contract
[QITC
] Framework). Link to Framework

HERE ARE THE KEY DOCUMENTS:

1. Request for Information (Provides details of response conditions,
timetable, contacts, evaluation criteria and other general
information.) https
