contract description:

In the light of technological advancements and recent developments in the area of public debt management, the Commonwealth secretariat has decided to develop a new system to better meet the needs of its membership.

The new System

The new system will be a web-based solution developed using technologies (e.g. c#, silverlight, etc.)

and will run on Windows platform and support both SQL server and oracle databases. It is expected that the system will support multiple languages (single-byte and multiple-byte languages) mainly English, French and Spanish.

The new system will provide a central repository for several categories of public and publicly guaranteed external and domestic debt covering a wide range of debt instruments from loans to securities.

scope of work: Given that the development of the new system is a major exercise, the Commonwealth secretariat has decided to outsource the development of the system. Subsequent maintenance of the system following warranty will be handled in-house by the Commonwealth secretariat. In summary the scope of work will involve:

Working with the Commonwealth secretariat to develop the system requirements specifications documents based on the business requirements documents provided by the secretariat.

Preparing system design documents (system modules and database) on which the development of the system will be based.

Developing and delivering a tested system to the secretariat for acceptance testing. The source code must be delivered with proper documentation explaining the functions of each module/function.

Providing comprehensive documentation (technical and user manuals) of the system to the secretariat. In addition, the system must allow for on-line, context sensitive help at both screen and field level.

Developing a data migration utility for electronically migrating client data from the existing CS-DRMS to the new system.

Training and transfer of knowledge must be provided to the staff of the secretariat who will provide first line support and carry out updates in-house once the system is delivered; the services of the provider may be enlisted for further development work depending on the nature and size of updates.
