new process
New Process
  • Starts for all agencies January 1, 2014
  • The new process essentially follows the same process that agencies currently use except:
    • Business cases are required (up front)
    • DTS will schedule a Solicitation Kick Off Meeting
    • Agencies are required to have a DTS employee on the Evaluation Committee
    • Agencies are required to fill out a DTS specific Solicitation Check List prior to submitting the solicitation to SP – signed by the Evaluation Committee Chair
    • DTS will review the solicitation briefly prior to it posting
things to keep in mind
Things to keep in mind…
    • DTS will continue to be responsible for managing the contract and

invoice payments

  • The Sole Source process will not change
  • No solicitation will be reviewed until:
    • Agency business case is reviewed/approved
    • RQM is complete and printed at SP
    • DTS schedules the solicitation kickoff meeting
  • No solicitation will be posted without a signed DTS Solicitation Check Sheet
  • DTS will receive a copy of the solicitation posting for review
  • DTS will still be involved and kept informed throughout the entire solicitation process
revised it rfp template
Revised IT RFP Template

State Purchasing has created a specific template for Information Technology RFP’s – updates include:

  • Language that allows DTS the ability to have additional agencies “piggy back” on current contracts provided the contract is amended to add the new scope of work
  • Specific IT Terms and Conditions (a blend of State of Utah Standard, Professional Services, and DTS T’s & C’s)
  • Performance evaluation language
  • Interactive RFP Score Sheet

Interactive IT RFP Score Sheet

The interactive IT RFP Score Sheet was designed to assist the RFP Evaluation Team in identifying and organizing the minimum mandatory requirements and scorable technical criteria included in the RFP.
