    @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.

    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:

    http://www.bsfatsns.blogspot.com/

    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.

Which would leave me wondering where we stood as we're not a school that does everything the way the LA suggests, including recently pulling out of We-Learn scheme.
    Hey Shreevie which school in Warks you at? You're not at Myton are you? I hear they've dumped We-Learn.

    Yup, that's the case - I'm in a Warwickshire school that has been overrun with RM equipment for the last four years.....

    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*
