 + 
 +Loughborough University implemented and configured Figshare to be used as a data repository in 2014. In 2018, work began to restructure the data repository to be used as an all-in-one multidisciplinary institutional repository that included a wide range of research outputs types including data, journal papers, theses and media. This required a collaborative rethink of the Figshare group structure, metadata, and ingest workflows, as well as a revised integration with LUPIN (Loughborough’s instance of Symplectic Elements) and a migration of records from their existing DSpace repository into Figshare 
 + 
 +"The metadata component of the migration was probably the most complex and lengthy task of the project"​

-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 necessaryThe 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 selected, Jisc notifies all bidders of the result and contracts are between the preferred supplier and member are drawn up.\\ +  * [[https://​www.elsevier.com/​en-gb/​solutions/​pure|Pure]] (Elsevier)

-  * 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.+
