The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is intending to run a re-procurement for a social media analysis platform. We are seeking the best value and most effective option for providing access to social media and other relevant content through Software as a Service (SaaS) social media analysis platform.

The FCA is looking for a platform to include social media and other relevant content. Requirements are largely concerned with the ability to support monitoring of the FCA's own social media (e.g. measuring the impact and effectiveness of the FCA's social presence), and to search social media in support of research into relevant sectors and firms.

With this early engagement notice, the FCA would like to:
a) give potential tenderers advance notice that the FCA are currently evaluating its procurement options;
b) advise potential tenderers of an upcoming Supplier Event which will be held via teleconference on 15th June 2018, and
c) give potential tenderers access to a Request for Information (RFI) document.

To register your interest, please access the FCA eSourcing portal: and in particular project_18253 by 12th June 2018 at 10am (10:00 GMT).

Note that interested organisations need to complete the Registration Questionnaire and sign a Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA) via Bravo, in order to attend the Supplier Event and receive the RFI document.

It should also be noted that the RFI invites individuals and organisations to express an interest in this RFI exercise only, and it is NOT a pre-qualification questionnaire, and is NOT part of any pre-qualification or selection process.
