Bristol City Council (BCC) wishes to explore a range of options for a new revenue and benefits platform.

The authority has kicked off an early-engagement exercise through which it hopes to find out what “revenues and benefits solutions [are] available” on the market currently.

“This will feed into the development of BCC's ongoing strategy in this area,” the council said.

It added that it was open to investing in its own platform – either a proprietary in-house system or one hosted in some form of cloud environment – or an outsourced service.

“Any solution will need to integrate into BCC's existing systems, [such as] finance, security, ICT, [and] Active Directory,” the council added.

Any potential suppliers wishing to take part in the market-testing exercise should register their interest in doing so by 11 January. The council stressed that the process will not necessarily ultimately result in a full procurement exercise.
