Invitation to Tender for the JISC Collections Service Provider Interface Study

Posted on Monday, 2 February 2009

JISC Collections wishes to commission a study to explore the approaches taken by Service Providers to the implementation of federated access management, and its effect on the End User experience.

The aim of the study is to make clear recommendations regarding common terminology and practices across service provider platforms to both improve the user experience and to ensure the maximum number of successful authentications.

It is expected that the project will be undertaken over a 4 month period between 30th March - 20th July 2009.

The deadline for proposals is 12 noon on Monday 2nd March 2009.

Funding of up to 35,000 (including VAT, travel and subsistence) is available for the project.
