-===== Overview ​=====+===== NEWS : Repository Purchasing Framework (February 2020) =====
  
-From : Fixing ​the UK repository ​landscapeBy Neil Jacobs ​Jisc. Open access briefing paper23.10.18+"Jisc is creating a Repository Purchasing Framework (a Dynamic Purchasing System), following feedback from the UK research sector and our members about the difficulties of procuring ​repository ​services, and the need for leadership and minimum standards in this area.\\ 
 +How will it work?\\ 
 +The framework will set out minimum standards that suppliers must comply with in order to have their product included. Suppliers will apply to be included, with the first wave of awards completed in the Spring. Additional suppliers can be added at any time.\\ 
 +Our members will be able to use the framework to run mini competitions with suppliers, using standard templates provided, and adding additional requirements of their own, if necessary. The Jisc framework team will administer the process, sending clarifications and responses to the member, who will then use their criteria to identify the preferred supplierIf a supplier is selectedJisc notifies all bidders of the result and contracts are between the preferred supplier and member are drawn up.\\ 
 +**Benefits and opportunities for members** 
 + 
 +   * The framework will reduce the procurement burden for members: it will facilitate a light touch procurement process for members, as the due diligence and OJEU requirements will have already been fulfilled. Members can focus solely on their specific requirements. 
 +  * Many members are undertaking research systems reviews with possibility of re-procuring for post-REF 2021, so this is a good moment to introduce this framework. 
 +  * Members can be confident that the services included use a clear set of sector standards 
 +  * The market for such services becomes more transparent,​ efficient and effective. 
 +  * Members get better value for money.

-According to the global directory OpenDOAR5there are 258 repositories in the UK, of which 180 hold research articles ​and, of these, 160 are institutionally-based (as opposed to being departmental or disciplinary).+**Introduction** \\ "This paper outlines ​the current state of the organisationalcultural and technical landscape related to OA repositories in the UK, trends ​and recent developmentsand suggestions for improvement"​
  
-According to the Universities UK 2017 Monitoring report , some 48% of articles with a UK author were openly available online other than on the publisher site, of which 15% were in institutional repositories,​ 13% in subject repositories,​ and 50% (likely illegally) on ResearchGate. The submission of items into institutional repositories is often mediated (or at least checked) by library staff, whereas that into subject repositories is usually direct by the author. While the REF policy has prompted many universities to increase the investment in their repositories,​ for others staffing for repository support remains rather low.\\ +**"Software** \\ Of the 160 institutional repositories,​ 27 use the DSpace open source software, 98 use the EPrints open source software, and 13 use Elsevier’s PURE product. A sizeable minority of those using open source software in fact pay for a hosted solution managed by a third party. Those with local installations are often running rather old software, perhaps because an accretion of local configurations makes it difficult to upgrade ​" \\
