|Other Information||The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to solicit Proposals from qualified Proponents to provide hosting, data migration, configuration, training and support services for a dedicated Entrepreneurship Manitoba instance of the Koha Integrated Library System (ILS). Entrepreneurship Manitoba currently uses a Software as a Service (SaaS) provider to host and support a catalogue of approximately 7000 records in an instance of Liblime Academic Koha (code version: 5.06.12.000, Koha schema version: 3.01.00.039) but is open to Proposals that use Koha, Liblime Koha, or Liblime Academic Koha.
Manitoba requires the Service Provider to have significant experience and knowledge in the Koha ILS framework in order to setup, host, migrate data, and configure and maintain the application. The Service Provider will host both a development and production instance of the application and migrate approximately 7000 bibliographical records from a MySQL backup and/or a MARC21 export of the existing catalogue. The development instance will be used to test Koha upgrades and library system catalogue development prior to release into production.|
