Invitation to Tender for the JISC Collections Service Provider Interface Study
JISC Collections wishes to commission a study to explore the approaches
taken by Service Providers to the implementation of federated access
management, and its effect on the End User experience. The aim of the study
is to make clear recommendations regarding common terminology and
practices across service provider platforms to both improve the user
experience and to ensure the maximum number of successful authentications.
It is expected that the project will be undertaken over a 4 month period
between 30th March–20th July 2009.
The deadline for proposals is 12 noon on Monday 2nd March 2009.
Funding of up to £35,000 (including VAT, travel and subsistence) is available
for the project.
