The UK government is looking for a private sector supplier to overhaul interfaces for the customs division's Internet, intranet and electronic publishing arm.
The Customs and Excise Department called last week for proposals that can be adapted to meet new business needs without major infrastructure changes.
The department urged potential suppliers to suggest ways to minimise the technical skills workers would need to alter and maintain electronic information by developing templates linked with Microsoft Office products.
A Customs spokeswoman told PC Week that the department was "putting out feelers at the moment" but was unable to say when a formal tender process would begin.
The project falls under the government's public/private partnership and wider markets initiative.
