Huh?Warwickshire - can't find anything about it taking part in BSF.
@Geoff - Yes I do know how to use a search engine, thanks
Plenty of meeting minutes but no real substance, no plans. Grommit had indicated that Warwickshire may have a BSF contract with RM.
I was just stating that I could find no evidence that they have taken part yet.
We find out tomorrow who ours are. Between Ramesys and Northgate. Though I've heard Northgate sub out to RM.
Both have stated they are very keen to keep in house techies..........well who else is going to dust the monitors now?!!?
Ramesys here by looks of it:
Carillion jv appointed preferred bidder for £208m Nottingham BSF contract.
Inspiredspaces, a joint venture between Carillion (40%) and Royal Bank of Scotland (40%).
And we were told Inspired spaces was using Ramesys as their IT.
Still waiting for official, cos obviously nobody can be bothered to tell us. But it's looking like Ramesys
If anyone's interested in seeing the BSF debacle play out from the point of view of Stoke Newington school, I spotted this blog:
written by Jill Cameron, who I think is their business manager. It's certainly interesting reading and highlights some of the day-to-day non-hilarity of putting your school through the Brown's Shady Funding process.
Bradford - It's SUN. Although they are providing the solution the managed service is being provided by Amey Business Services.
In terms of time we are due to be TUPE'd across mid-August 2008 with occupancy of the new building start of September 2008. All on target and looking very flashy.
TUPE is the real kick in the pants as it does infer we couldn't have done what they're doing but seeing as we operate with only a tenth of the spend in BSF, over the same time period, it's hardly a major surprise.
Newham - RM £?
Tameside - Ramesys £25mil
Both on wiki
Liverpool's BSF is under LDL stewardship - who? I hear you cry. Liverpool Direct Limited closely allied to Liverpool City Council - GOD help us all !!!!!!!!!
I've just spotted our LEA on the spreadsheet you can download from their site. I suppose I'd better try and find some info (we're wave 7-9) from the LEA. *Sigh*
