Description:
The British Library is embarking on a 3-5 year project to build a new online platform to replace its existing website. The Web Redevelopment Project (WRP) will create a completely new website that will be much more coherent yet provide clear, targeted offers for researchers, learners, and the public. The Library is now seeking external support for the two key initiatives outlined below.

LOT 1. DEVELOPING A USER-FOCUSED BRITISH LIBRARY GLOBAL EXPERIENCE LANGUAGE

The supplier selected for this project will create a global experience language for the Library. This will comprise a comprehensive information architecture along with associated interface, interaction, graphic design, and brand standards.

LOT 2. CONDUCTING A DETAILED WEB TECHNICAL ARCHITECTURE REVIEW

This supplier selected for this project will define the technical architecture of the Library’s web estate for the period to 2020, establish and understand the relationship of key elements (content management, customer management, search, digital item presentation, document supply, ecommerce, community tools, interface and development standards, etc), and define the web technical standards that will be required.

The Library envisages that delivery of the majority of the requirements for Lots 1 and 2 will be completed by the successful tenderer(s) prior to the 31st March 2012.

These projects require suppliers with a strong record of developing comprehensive user experience and/or technical solutions for complex, content rich websites. The successful tenderer(s) should be able to deploy a sizeable team led by senior personnel that demonstrates an appropriate skill set, a proven track record of service delivery and offers excellent value for money. Suppliers selected for Invitation to Tender (ITT) at the conclusion of this prequalification exercise will have the opportunity to tender for one or both of the Lots described above.
