The Authority's Defence Digital ASDT Project EMPORIUM is looking to deliver a Cloud-like capability suitable for hosting services that have a caveat of a higher tier classification (above OFFICIAL).

The project has recently produced several Courses of Actions (COAs) and will present within an Early Market Engagement event (EME) to seek advice and guidance from Industry for options to satisfy the subsequent procurement. The COAs are not exhaustive, and Industry are encouraged to suggest alternative approaches that may meet the requirements of the Authority.

The EME event will be a virtual event and will be held on 29 Apr 21 (from 1000 to 1200), through Microsoft Teams, supported by TechUK, and will be held at OFFICIAL.

In addition to the EME event a Request for Information (RFI) to pose questions regarding delivery of the requirement will be issued to all invited suppliers. It will be issued by 1300 on 29 Apr 21 and responses are requested by 1200 on 14 May 21. Any response provided is voluntary and does not start the official procurement process for delivering a Cloud-like capability.

The provided information will not be used in the assessment of any proposal from industry. It should be noted that all responses released in relation to the RFI is released on a subject to contract basis, is subject to change and does not signal the start of a formal procurement process.
