The role of the team is to support the UK Defence Engagement commitment to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) by acquiring and supporting modern Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I) capabilities for the Saudi Arabian National Guard (SANG) in order to contribute to the UK’s Defence Objectives and KSA Defence Country Strategy, and support SANG mission success. SANGCOM has supported the SANG since 1978 with back to back capability acquisition agreements together with complementary support contracts. Interested parties should note that paragraph 2 below indicates the main place of performance only to the extent that performance is required in the UK. Interested parties should note that the main location of delivery and performance of the contract generally will be Riyadh (KSA). Other locations may include Jeddah (KSA) and Dammam (KSA), Corsham (UK), or remote working within the UK. The Resource Partner will provide resources into the SANGCOM team to enable it to best procure and manage the future programme of work. It is important that resources with the right skill, qualifications and experience are provided by the Resource Partner. These resources will need to integrate quickly into the team and work collaboratively will be a key requirement. They will need to work closely with MOD civilian and military personnel. Required outputs will be delivered through roles described below. Call off of services will be on an a ‘as needed’ basis, with no guarantee of throughput. We estimated that the Resource Partner will provide between 10% and 25% of team strength at any one time. This gives an outline planning figure of 25 resources that could be required at any one time. The Authority requires the provider to provide a Board-level commitment that the resources provided after appointment will be consistent with the skills, knowledge and qualifications stated in its proposal. The Resource Partner will be expected to provide all administrative and life support requirements including, but not limited to, the following should be covered: • International Travel (including Visas); • In-country Travel (including any driver licensing considerations); • Accommodation (living); • Medical (including immunisation); • Subsistence; • Appropriate clothing, including Protective Personal Equipment (PPE). Appointed persons will be required to comply with local security instructions as directed by the SANGCOM team. Consideration must be given to local culture, customs and practices, including religious and gender sensitivity issues. The roles required are likely include, but may not be limited to: Availability Management; Accreditation Management; Business Management; Capacity Management; Change and Evaluation Management; Enterprise Architecture; Finance Management; IT Architecture; IT Management; Programme, Portfolio and Project Management; Procurement Management; Planning; Quality Assurance; Release and Deployment Management; Risk Management; Security Architecture; Service Continuity Management; Solutions Architecture; Test and Evaluation Engineering; Travel Security Coordination. Due to the security classifications and timelines surrounding this project the Authority requires that all interested suppliers complete and return a non-disclosure agreement prior to being provided with a copy of the ITT.
