The Technical Evaluation Group (TEG) was responsible for defining the technical requirements for the groupware solution. These included, but were not limited to: scalability, system availability, security, authentication and authorisation, data import/export, hardware platfoms, backup and disaster recovery, accessibility and standards for interoperability. The technical requirements were driven by a combination of the functional requirements, critical success factors for delivering enterprise systems, and the standards necessary to ensure that the groupware solution is suited to Oxford's devolved and heterogeneous IT environment (where, for example, there exist a mixture of hardware devices, operating systems, and client applications). The Technical Evaluation Group operated in conjunction with the Short-listing Panel and had the responsibility for advising on, and recommending, solutions on the basis of the technical specification.
