Tender for keyboarding

February 7th, 2012 Martin Holmes Comments off

Following the successful scanning of the cards and slips which make up the Maps and Music catalogues, currently located in Duke Humfrey’s Library, we now have a very large file of digital images, one for each card in both sets of catalogues. The next step is to commission the keyboarding of the contents of the cards so that the information on them can be made searchable in a database. Last Monday, an invitation was issued for companies to tender for this work and we now have a list of firms who have expressed an interest in submitting a proposal. The timetable for this part of the project is as follows:

Phase Date Action
1 Mon 30 January, 2012 Date of Invitation
2 Fri 3 February, 2012 Date for indication of intent to submit Proposal
3 Wed 15 February, 2012 Date for submission of Proposal
4 Thurs 1 March, 2012 Date by which The University of Oxford will evaluate responses
5 To be scheduled Date for presentation/discussion with shortlisted Suppliers
6 March / April, 2012 Date by which The University of Oxford will award a contract, if any

Once all proposals have been received, we will be evaluating them and, we hope, awarding a contract sometime in the spring.
