The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced that it is seeking tenders from companies interested in providing specialist audio–visual archive management services. The successful company will work closely with the ICC to market and manage footage from various cricket events, including the ICC Cricket World Cup, the ICC Champions Trophy and the ICC World Twenty20. Although the ICC will retain the function of licensing match footage from its events, the successful applicant will be required to provide expert technical support to the ICC by logging, storing, editing and distributing the ICC match footage to various B2B users. The appointment will be made for the period up to 31 December 2011 to ensure that both the ICC and its partner have a real incentive to invest in widespread marketing of the archives. The deadline for the submission of proposals is 16 January 2009. Interested parties should vist http://icc–cricket. yahoo. com/ and click on 'Commercial Opportunity'
