Introduction:
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy brings together responsibilities for business, industrial strategy, science, innovation, energy, and climate change, merging the functions of the former BIS and DECC.

Background:
The Industrial Strategy set an ambition to make the UK "the best understood major economy". It also stated that "the success of our Industrial Strategy will also depend on our ability to keep up with the pace with new sectors and emerging businesses."

The BEIS Future Sectors team leads government policy to grow the emerging sectors of the UK economy - supporting businesses in R&D intensive sectors (e.g. robotics and quantum technology), in parts of existing sectors that are transforming (e.g. LawTech or EdTech) and the wider tech sector as a whole.

Brief Description of Requirement:
This is for the provision to procure a database that can help BEIS better describe the business landscape in emerging sectors. This will help BEIS assess which sectors deserve further policy support, whilst giving us a deeper understanding of current areas of policy interest - such as artificial intelligence, robotics and quantum technologies.

To do this BEIS require business data which gives detailed information on the nature of the activities carried out by individual firms (e.g. what type of technologies they are developing), what the downstream customers / applications are, and whether they have any good IP or assets that give them a strong competitive advantage, for instance. As well as information on firms' activities, data on company locations would also enable BEIS to identify where emerging sectors are clustered around the UK.

Deliverables:
The key project deliverable is access to a database with the requirements & features described above. Bidders should provide information on the size, dimensions and quality of the database that they would provide access to.

Bidders should specify the number of licences or any download limits for the price they supply. We only expect to require up to 4 users, thus we do not need an option for a large number of licences.

Bidders should provide information about any support services, training or consultancy days that may be provided as part of the package.
