Invitation to Tender: Update & Edit the Shipwreck Inventory Database

Closes August 31, 2011

The Underwater Archaeology Unit (UAU) of Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht (DAHG) is compiling an Inventory of all shipwrecks recorded in Irish Waters. The UAU currently has a wreck database containing approximately 10,000 wreck records which is held in an MS Access database. The format of this database has recently been redesigned and therefore a certain level of data formatting and standardisation is required in order to facilitate efficient use of the database. DAHG now invites tenders to carry out a block of work updating and editing the Shipwreck Inventory database. The successful tenderer will need to be in a position to begin work on this project from 19th September 2011 and it is envisaged that the contract shall be completed by 6 April 2012. A detailed specification in relation to the tender request is presented in the RFT document.
