VANL is looking to work with an IT professional who can provide us with an IT improvement plan to enable us to progress.  This plan should consist of: 

1) An analysis of the current and future IT needs of the business, including: 

  • Hardware 
  • Software and licenses  
  • Network server or alternatives 
  • IT helpdesk / ongoing support requirements 
  • Website / online bookings and transactions  
  • Any associated infrastructure requirements, i.e. data sockets, power supply, wireless connectivity etc.   
  • Data security considerations  

(It is expected that the contractor shall visit the VANL offices to look at the current set-up and discuss needs with members of staff)  

2) The identification of at least one suitable solution (taking into account the use of charitable funds and the need for value for money)  

3) An estimate of the cost and the timescales needed to implement the plan
