Address where the work will take place

Working arrangements
We would expect that the suppliers will be onsite for at least 20 - 25 working days (any planning and design may be able to be done off site). The ICT internal team is small and is currently too busy to get this piece of work off the ground. It’s envisaged that the supplier will assist the internal teams with the initial planning & design and creation of the new domain. It is also envisaged that the supplier will define a pilot group of objects and assist internal staff with the initial migration of these objects (TBD).
