The opportunity for suppliers to deliver a solution to provide a Safeguards Information Management and Reporting System (SIMRS) is currently being advertised via the Government’s Digital Marketplace.
The UK Government has clarified that when invoking Article 50, it will be leaving Euratom as well as the EU. ONR will develop and deliver a UK State System of Accountancy for and Control of Nuclear Material (SSAC) by 29 March 2019. One key aspect of the UK SSAC will be a Safeguards Information Management and Reporting System (SIMRS) to which this ITT relates. A system that meets international reporting obligations must be ready for parallel running by end of December 2018 and go live by 29 March 2019. ONR requires a supplier that can develop and implement a fully functional system that meets all mandatory requirements by prescribed deadlines, provide associated user training and provide development, support and maintenance post-implementation.
