The provision of alternative format material, spoken word and large print, serves the needs of two interrelated and socially excluded groups for Hampshire County Council (the Council); the elderly and the print disabled.
The provision of spoken word and large print is a key area of library service provision and is one of our unique selling points.
The Council wants to identify from the market if any potential suppliers have the publishers rights to supply the books and audiobooks in the formats specified in the PIN (Prior information notice).
The Council is looking to undertake a quotation exercise with suppliers that can demonstrate they can supply the identified authors in the formats requested.
Additionally, any supplier wishing to quote will need to ensure any EDI quotes, orders, fulfilment and invoices must be compatible with Spydus, our Library Management System. The stock must arrive fully processed and shelf ready. This includes, for each title, supplier EDI appliance of specified rotation rotas with variable start libraries within each individual rota. Delivery of stock is currently to a central location on a monthly basis.
If you are interested in delivering these services please attach yourself to the project via the In-tend system at https://in-tendhost.co.uk/hampshire/
