The Business Enterprise Systems Transformation (BEST) Program issued a Request for Information (RFI) from cloud software solution vendors. The RFI is posted on COMMBUYS.
A similar RFI was conducted over three years ago, but cloud software solutions have developed significantly since that time. The goal of this RFI is to provide the Commonwealth with an understanding of the scope, depth and readiness of available software solutions to address the Commonwealth's needs. Responses to the RFI will provide the Executive Sponsors, Executive Steering Committee and the BEST PMO an overall view of both functionality and implementation recommendations.
The deadline for RFI responses is January 22, 2021.
The added RFI milestone is a critical step in ensuring that we gather information to help create a more informed community of users; refine the content of the software RFR to reflect realistic assumptions; and provide a baseline for more informed assessment when reviewing responses to the RFR.
The Program team will continue to update you through monthly communications as we move through this process.
