Requirements specifications



The requirements specification is a key document in the process to procure a new business system; it outlines the functionality that the purchaser is looking for and gives prospective suppliers the opportunity to identify how their product or service meets the specification.

The processes within higher education institutions are broadly similar and as a consequence, the requirements specifications for applications defined by purchasing institutions will also have a high degree of commonality. UCISA is building a library of such specifications for our members to use in whole or in part in the procurement of such systems. The first, for a Library Management System and developed by the University of Edinburgh, is available to members only from the link below.
