The UK RepositoryNet+ project (RepNet) has been funded by JISC (UK Joint information Systems Committee) to establish an infrastructure based around Institutional Repositories (IRs)to support Open Access publishing models for research papers. With the scoping phase of the project now complete, and the build phase slated to commence in March, it is planned to launch the service during OR12 in July. This paper will discuss the background to the funding of the project, the methodology followed to map the academic publishing landscape and establish user requirements, the process followed to develop and refine the components catalogue, and the bringing into service of the main functional services and components for Waves 1 and 2 of the project through to March 2013
