Request for bids--Studies on stewardship in the East Midlands, UK

From: Jerry Weber <jweber>
Date: Monday, October 20, 2003
Call for expressions of interest for two studies in stewardship in
the East Midlands, UK.

EMMLAC, East Midlands Museums, Libraries and Archives Council,
England is carrying out two short investigations in stewardship in
the East Midlands:

   "Investigation into Conservation and Storage Provision for
    museums, libraries and archives in the East Midlands"

and

   "Investigation of the work of REDS (Regional Emergency and
    Disaster Squad)"

EMMLAC is asking for expressions of interest in these two projects.
Although, we would be happy to consider bids for each project
individually, we expect the projects to be carried out together and
would welcome expressions of interest for both projects as one piece
of work.

The closing date for applications is 12 noon on November 15, 2003.
It is envisaged that interviews with shortlisted applicants will be
held at EMMLAC's offices during the week beginning November 24,
2003. If you would like full details of the projects, please contact

1. "Investigation into Conservation and Storage Provision for
    museums, libraries and archives in the East Midlands"

    EMMLAC is committed to assisting in the improvement in standards
    of collections care in museums, libraries and archives in the
    East Midlands.  In order to achieve this, a first step is to
    indicate the extent of conservation provision and storage
    facilities in the region. This project will be an analytical
    study to identify current conservation provision and the quality
    of collections storage in the East Midlands. A scoping study
    will identify the current provision of conservation services in
    the East Midlands including the private sector, conservation
    centres of excellence and mechanisms for staff training in
    preservation and handling issues.  It is also intended that
    selected parts of Resource's 'Benchmarks in Collections Care'
    will be used as a template to determine the broad quality and
    provision of collections storage in the East Midlands.

    2. "Investigation of the work of REDS (Regional Emergency and
        Disaster Squad)

        This project will investigate the current position of the
        REDS organisation and will assess potential options for the
        REDS model to be used in other regions.  The project will
        identify the current activities of REDS, other networks in
        disaster response and the availability of training and
        awareness raising programmes on disaster planning in the
        region.  The project will also investigate future
        development for REDS and provide an options paper for a
        regional disaster response model for regional museums,
        libraries and archives organisations.
