Decision details

Renewal of Civica Multivue data matching software

Decision Maker: Chief Executive

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


This product is one a small number available but has been in use within Bristol City Council for the past four years. The proposed procurement route is to Direct Award through a CSS Framework - RM3821 Data and Application Solutions. This Framework has been extended until 22 May 2023. DAS (Data and Applications Solutions) is a compliant route and allows for a Direct Award. The solution is already embedded on our infrastructure so ensures best value for public money with no additional costs to seek a similar solution that would incur additional costs with any other supplier.


To renew our licensing/support agreement with Civica through Direct Award for a period of three years.

Alternative options considered:

Not to renew. Having no data matching software would undermine a range of data and insight activity across the organisation.
