Data.Vic website redevelopment - Expressions of Interest (EOI)

Submitted on Monday, 28th October - 15.10.

Expected release date is prior to end of October 2013. This will be followed one week later by an industry briefing in Melbourne. Minutes of that briefing will be provided to interested parties that are unable to attend.

The Department of State Development, Business and Innovation (DSDBI) will soon be calling for expressions of interest to provide the necessary services for the re-development of the Victorian Government’s Data Directory, data.vic.gov.au (Data.Vic).

Data.Vic was developed in response to the 2009 parliamentary inquiry into improving access to Victorian Public Sector Information and data.

In August 2012, the Victorian Government endorsed the DataVic Access Policy. The Policy provides direction on the release, licensing and management of Victorian Government data. The policy also includes a number of requirements of Data.Vic that the service does not currently provide. 

The purpose of the EOI process is to identify and assess the ability of Registrants responding to the invitation to provide the services and works required by DSDBI.

The project will build on the policy commitment to provide greater access to Victorian Government generated and owned data to promote the use and re-use of data to support research, innovation and evidence based decision making. The policy/project also encourages the movement to co-production of public services, facilitating the market to develop new and innovative products and services.

The EOI will outline the major deliverables, including:

· Deliver a re-development of the public facing site

· Delivery of an integrated information asset register

· Application development and deployment

· Ongoing support services

Any potential vendors planning to respond to the EOI must first register with the Victorian Government's eServices Register (if you haven't already). 

Further information will be provided upon the release of the EOI and the functional requirements document.

Expected release date is prior to end of October 2013. This will be followed one week later by an industry briefing in Melbourne. Minutes of that briefing will be provided to interested parties that are unable to attend.
