II.2.4) Description of the procurement:

The request is for a software-as-a-service solution running on a hosted environment and maintained by the contractor, with strict demands for confidentiality, integrity and availability of data (see appendices 5 and 10).

Main library functions to be met are detailed in Appendix 2, and include:

— end-user oriented interface (discovery layer), with approximately 1 500 registered end users,

— user management in combination with internal and external services,

— circulation of physical items,

— Electronic resource management (ERM), link resolution and access control,

— acquisition services for print and electronic resources,

— management of bibliographic metadata,

— Inter-Library Loan (ILL) closely integrated with the Danish national ILL-infrastructure,

— statistics and analytics tools,

— migration of data from DPL’s current ALEPH installation to one back-end system (the LSP).

DPL runs a variety of other services that needs to integrate with the hosted system solution. Integrations can be done in multiple ways, and DPL needs to achieve efficient integrations with the LSP and/or discovery layer based on recognized standards and the availability of two-way communication through open APIs.

An important task for the DPL is to provide end-users with access to licensed electronic information resources. The ERM processes must show robust performance.

The discovery layer provides an end-user oriented interface that allows users to search, find and gain access to information resources that are either held by the library or that the library will obtain for the user.

As part of implementation of the LSP, data from the DPL’s current ALEPH installation needs to be migrated to the LSP. Relevant supplementary data from auxiliary systems (such as external systems whose functionality will be supported by the LSP) may be included in this migration.

Approximately 15 library staff users will need system access to the LSP. The current number of bibliographic titles is more than 70 000, and there are presently some 1 500 registered library end-users. As this is a current status, the LSP must be able to handle a larger number of bibliographic titles and end-users.

After delivery of the Solution, in the time to come, DPL intend to order further integrations. Likewise, DPL intend to order consultancy assistance in relation to assist DPL’s utilization of one or more further functionalities.

If the candidate relies on the economic and financial capacity of other entities, the contracting entity may require that the candidate and the entities in question undertake joint and several liability for the performance of the contract.

The ESPD serves as provisional documentation that the candidate fulfils the minimum suitability requirements in respect of economic and financial capacity.

Upon the contracting entity's request, the following documentation of economic and financial capacity must be submitted:

For groups of operators (e.g. a consortium), the information in the three most recent annual reports/financial statements available must be submitted for each participating operator in the group. Where an operator relies on the economic and financial capacity of other entities (e.g. a parent company, a sister company or a subcontractor), information for such other entities must be provided as well.

Minimum level(s) of standards possibly required:

As a minimum requirement, a total annual turnover of at least DKK 5 000 000 million is required in each of the three latest annual reports/financial statements available. If the candidate relies on the capacity of other entities, the turnover is to be calculated as the total turnover of the candidate and such other entities in each of the three latest annual reports/financial statements available.

If this is not possible, for example if the tasks were performed on a continuous basis under a framework agreement, the candidate is asked to indicate the specification of the date.

No more than 5 references may be stated, irrespective of whether the candidate is a single operator, whether the candidate relies on the technical capacity of other entities, or whether the candidate is a group of opera-tors (e.g. a consortium).

If the candidate relies on the professional experience of other entities for the performance of specific parts of the services comprised by the contract, see section II.2.4), such specific parts of the services under the contract must be performed by the entity on which the candidate relies.
