Open University looks for SaaS based HR, finance and student system

The Open University is going out to tender for a new off-premise, hosted or ‘Software as a Service’ based integrated HR, finance and student record system, reports Government Computing.

The contract, worth around £35m, is likely to be for an initial period of ten years, which is potentially extensible to 15 years. The university will be able to exercise a break clause to take effect at the end of contract years 5, 8 and 10, the tender said.

As well as providing the system, the tender also comprises the services to configure, integrate and host the system, including ongoing support and maintenance.

The university said that to preserve its place as one of the UK’s leading academic institutions, it has embarked on a programme of “Students First Transformation”, which, it said, will lead the transition to a new operating model.

One of the key enabling work streams within Students First Transformation is a Digital Technologies stream, which has a goal of driving forward the necessary organisational and technical changes to ensure that university becomes a truly digital first organisation.
