HPC procurement
The design and support of a procurement process, from a buyer’s perspective, following applicable EU and UK rules and guidelines, including the specification of requirements, creation of a tender evaluation framework, and advising and participating in the evaluation of responses received.
From a supplier’s perspective, advising on the technical responses to a competitive tender.
Clearly only one role would ever be undertaken with one customer for a particular competitive tender exercise, in other words I would only work with a single supplier or for the buyer.

HPC technology
The analysis of current and likely future hardware and software technologies, their strengths and weaknesses, and their method of deployment, all contributing to current and future implementations of High Performance Computing systems.

HPC operations
The methods of delivering High Performance Computing services, through shared platforms, scheduling systems and “cloud” off-site approaches to best meet the needs of a particular implementation.
