These programmes of work will involve the identification of a suitable process, a review of existing arrangements, and an initial deployment of RPA. The two pieces of work form part of a “council-wide change programme”, Dacorum said.

The council wishes to appoint a single firm to deliver both projects and is inviting bids until 6 September, with the intention of commencing work on 30 September. A budget of between £100,000 and £180,000 has been set aside for the project, which is scheduled to conclude on 31 December.

“Dacorum Borough Council requires support from a trusted and highly skilled partner, in the identification, design and delivery of a proof of concept,” the authority said. “This fixed price engagement is comprised of two defined work packages that need to be delivered, and priced independently and as a complete package. It is the intention to award all work to one supplier.”
