A space to explore current opportunities
We have a tender for an ‘e-learning’ site. The time is tight, the budget is tight but the client is nice and probably flexible.
Please email email@example.com for more information?
Is this the place for this kind of conversation? I’ll get my coat if not.
Happier to be fully transparent in this thread, if appropriate and doesn’t create unwanted noise for everyone.
What kind of system would the client require? Moodle e.t.c
We have some sysadmin / devops capacity for Linux servers configuration via Ansible.
Using this thread for this discussion is fine by me
I just tried to upload the tender pdf but it is not an allowed format
Here’s a £300k software development opportunity for a water supply company in Birmingham. Of interest?
"The company is looking to procure the development of operational systems which will create efficiencies and improve processes and controls.
Interested parties wishing to apply must be able to demonstrate the following capabilities:
— Ability to develop bespoke software which can integrate with the company’s other core platforms.
— Project management and delivery.
— Prompt resolution of issues.
— Ability to work to tight timescales."
Sorry I don’t want to spam these, but I’m subscribed to a load of emails that contain jobs like these that I figured I should pass them on and if people want to take them on, or if it’s something to co-pitch for then great. If it’s not useful for people and I should stop, please let me know!
The University of Bath needs new point of sale software - https://www.delta-esourcing.com/tenders/UK-GB-Bath:-EPOS-System/EH7AW36C7E
We would love to join in with a tech who fancies leading this one…
Software Build - University of Brighton
Closing date: 04/06/2018
University of Brighton
The current project, “Fast early-stage simulator of energy consumption and comfort in buildings” (FREDS), for the development a web platform for building simulation is funded directly by the University of Brighton and supervised by Prof. Marco Marengo and Dr. Marco Picco.
Project Description: We have a SOFTWARE PLATFORM which provides a fast and simple way to perform building energy simulations and assist with the selection of appropriate building components and systems during early design stages. We offer a complete and accurate evaluation of the energy and comfort performance of a built environment (even in the design phase) considering the climate, the use, the geometry and the materials of the building.
The platform will be based on a simplified building description model. We use the open-source code EnergyPlusTM issued by the US Department of Energy (DoE) and developed protocol and algorithms to quickly deliver complex building performance analyses.
Main system features needs to be developed:
- APIs to connect the frontend to the existing backend
- Interface (Main, Input, Results display, User Registration, User Profile)
- Help Functions
A Detailed Software Requirements Specification document is available if needed.
It is expected the available budget will not be able to cover the development of all the required features, interested companies are therefore asked to provide quotes including the cost to develop each feature separately.
Budget: Looking for quotes - TBD

Looks like a good spot - thanks Simon!
Would love to be the design partner with any techs on this project.
There’s a competition call out recently, Digital tools for prospective students, jointly from the DoE and Innovate UK, run under the SBRI (Small Business Research Initiative).
The aim is to work towards create tools (e.g. apps) to help prospective students make university and course choices, based on available data on graduate employment and salaries.
The initial call offers £25,000 in phase 1 for up to five successful bids to carry out a study, where “proposals must include plans for user discussion or testing to ensure solutions meet students needs, and they must use graduate outcomes data.” Should last c. 1 month.
The best ideas then share £300,000, so min £60,000, to develop their ideas in a second phase.
Deadline is midday 8 August 2018
Cetis have full knowledge of and ready access to the relevant data sets, so we would like to partner with an organisation with good UX/front end experience. Please get back in touch as soon as, either if you are interested or, if not, with contact details of any other CoTech members you know of with good UX/front end experience.

Thanks for sharing this to the network, looks like a great opportunity for another CoTech Collab!!
It would be great to have a chat with you to find out about your ideas for the project and discuss roles responsibilities for doing the proposal and just to get an idea of how we both work and if we’d be the right dit to work together on this. I’ve been involved with a couple of CoTech Collabs this year and would love to be involved with another one.
I’m around on my mac most of this week working from home, so if you’d like to do an appear.in or arrange a call then let me know when works for you.
Look forward to speaking sometime soon.
This just spotted on the US focussed tech-coop mailing list:
From the sounds of it, they haven’t gotten many bites yet.
LEFTIST WEB DEVELOPERS AND UI/UX DESIGNERS:
We‘re looking for a sleek, avant-garde, and exceptionally CREATIVE website upgrade (and mobile app).
We DO have a budget.
If you‘re interested in this gig, PLEASE share your portfolio through the form below:

We can’t do it but I thought some of CoTech might be interested. You’ll need to be registered on the DO&S framework in order to apply.
If you’re not registered then you might want to consider applying for version 3 of the framework which opens for applications tomorrow.
