In addition and as an option Lot 1 seeks a Supplier that is able to support the appraisal of records prior to migration through the use of automated tools in order to carry out a selection of records to be moved without deleting the records from the old ERMS.

IFAD requires a comprehensive solution that addresses the requirements for Lot 1 and Lot 2. This may involve vendors seeking an implementing partner to ensure that the requirements of both Lots are addressed in a coherent and compatible single solution. However, IFAD reserves the right to award only a portion of the requirements and/or to award multiple contracts on the basis of the Lots. Moreover, IFAD prefers to have a solution and proposal covering both Lots considering Lot 1: EDRMS as a corporate priority.
