Description

Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) is seeking feedback and advice that will test its assumptions, from potential service providers who may be interested in providing integrated geospatial services that comprise digitising remote sensing and ad hoc innovation in these and related applications.

Agri-environmental and CAP schemes rely upon a set of monitoring and controls with geospatial information lying at the core of much of the administration of policy for subsidy schemes. The Land Management System (LMS) is Defra's corporate geographic information system (GIS) and is used to mastering its land registration data for subsidy scheme validation and rural/agri-environmental policy implementation.

The main requirement of this service is to be able to provide a flexible workforce that can meet the fluctuating demands on the RPA for Control with Remote Sensing and Digitising.
