The purpose of this Request for Proposal (“RFP”) is to solicit proposals for the provision of Managed Public Cloud Services for Commonwealth executive branch agencies declared by the legislature to be “in-scope” to VITA.
For the purposes of this RFP, “Supplier” or “Offeror” means any entity that submits a proposal in response to this RFP.
VITA is seeking three distinct Managed Public Cloud Services Providers (MCS) to join its multi supplier integrated platform to provide managed public cloud services for the following Cloud Service Providers (CSPs):
· Microsoft Azure
· Google GCP
· Oracle OCI
To ensure that VITA has adequate safeguards and redundancy within the managed cloud services environment and to reduce the risk of a single point of failure, it is the intention of VITA to make three (3) separate awards resulting in a one-to-one relationship between a single MCS awardee and a single CSP. One award for each of the three separate and distinct suppliers. For example, Supplier A would have a one-to-one relationship with MS Azure and Supplier B would have a one-to-one relationship with Google GCP. Therefore, Offerors shall submit one (1) proposal for one (1) CSP in response to this RFP. Multiple submissions from a single offeror will remove the offeror from further consideration.
VITA will be the owner of all CSP environments and tenants, in a VITA owned, contractor managed model. The MCS provider shall be an authorized partner of the CSP for which they submit a proposal, among other requirements.
The MCS provider will perform the following initial onboarding scope:
1) Assume current services as described in Exhibit 2.1 (Description of Services – Managed Public Cloud Services), Tab 9.0 (Assume Current Services) from the incumbent supplier for the CSP scope which the MCS is awarded a contract;
2) Successfully deliver a Remediation plan within 30 days of access to the Commonwealth’s environment;
3) Successfully deliver a Modernization plan within 90 days of access to the Commonwealth’s environment;
4) Process any Request For Solution (RFS) that the incumbent supplier has not fulfilled. A current list of planned projects is listed in Exhibit 2.6 (Current- Planned Projects).
The MCS provider shall integrate into VITA's multi-supplier Service Management Platform as a Tier 1 Supplier. Detailed information regarding cross-functional responsibilities supporting the Service Management main processes are listed in Exhibit
2.1 (Description of Services – Managed Public Cloud Services), Tab 2.0 (Cross- Functional Services), Tab 3.0 (Enterprise Architecture), Tab 4.0 (Security Requirements, and Tab 11.0 (SMM Responsibilities). A detailed description of the Integrated Services Platform is available in the Exhibit 1.0 (Integrated Services Platform) in the RFP package.
VITA's Multi-Sourcing Service Integrator (“MSI”), Science Applications International Corporation (“SAIC”) will provide Cloud Broker Technology Integration (“CBTI”) services into which the MCS supplier shall integrate. The MCS supplier may bring a suite of tools to manage the cloud platform, but all MCS provided tools shall integrate into the MSI CBTI platform.
This MCS supplier will design, architect, develop, integrate, deploy, support, and optimize solutions based on RFS received.
The MCS supplier will be required to provide end-to-end consulting services as part of its base offering. Agencies may request enhanced consulting services beyond the base offering for the development of comprehensive solutions that leverage applicable service components from the awarded CSP and their portfolio of services. The MCS supplier shall communicate the various ways the components of the cloud offerings can be assembled to solve business/Agency problems.
Offerors shall propose a cloud service management framework along with a staffed organization that oversees the fully managed use of the CSP's services. Suppliers shall have experience in providing solutions for varying lines of Business (Agencies), with differing needs, budgets, staff skills, and timeframes.
• Supplier will provide Services that are flexible, rapidly provisioned, cost effective, transparent, and elastic to meet VITA and Customer needs while preserving enterprise requirements such as Compliance and Security Management.
• VITA is also open to any value-added services.
Timely proposals received in response to this RFP will be evaluated by the Managed Public Cloud Services evaluation team. Once the proposals have been evaluated, VITA will be in a position to determine the best course of action. VITA intends to select a Managed Public Cloud Services Supplier or Suppliers to successfully implement and perform the Services more fully described throughout this RFP. Although it is our intent to accomplish substantial improvements and cost efficiencies as the result of this project, VITA may determine that no change is warranted at this time. VITA may, at its sole discretion, make one award, multiple awards, or none at all.
Suppliers may use relationships with other providers to meet the requirements of this procurement. However, responding Suppliers shall act as a prime contractor, with any other participating providers indicated as subcontractors.RFP Site

The Northwest Regional Workforce Investment Board is seeking a vendor capable of designing and hosting a new website for the Northwest Manufacturing and Healthcare Regional Sector Partnerships. Proposals should outline a plan to accomplish this task that includes a timeline, cost, and deliverables. The following RFP includes a background of the regional sector partnerships (RSPs) and describes the purpose of the design, its desired functionality, and specific requests relating to the proposal. We understand that details may be subject to change upon vendor recommendation and / or research of more optimal solutions. In your proposal, please feel free to suggest alternatives as appropriate.
The Northwest Regional Workforce Investment Board (NRWIB) is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating career pathways for adults and youth through in-demand workforce and training programs. The Next Generation Regional Sector Partnerships, a collaborative initiative under the NRWIB, are partnerships of businesses, from the same industry and in a shared labor market region, who work with education, workforce development, economic development, and community organizations to address the workforce and other competitiveness needs of the targeted industry. We are desirous of two new websites, one to host the Manufacturing RSP, and the other to host the Healthcare RSP. A rough site has already been developed for the Manufacturing RSP, powered and secured by Wix.com, which would require an overhaul in terms of design and content. Currently, there is no rough site developed for the Healthcare RSP, and therefore, we would require a completely new website design for the healthcare partnership. Some of our goals include but are not limited to:
Our vision for the new website includes one that is functional, easy to navigate and user- friendly along with the incorporation of “calls-to-action”. Our major target audience is a broad mix of healthcare and manufacturing employers and public supporter partners who have a vested interest in networking, collaborating on projects, and recruiting partners of their targeted sector to join RSP initiatives, which are heavily focused on expanding their industry talent pipelines by addressing urgent talent needs and improving job placement and advancement. Other target audiences to consider are low income and/or displaced job seekers needing training and /or job placement, and the youth population (including high school and middle school students), seeking career awareness and readiness resources. All of the above target audiences would also benefit from workforce services and labor market information provided by the NRWIB and the Connecticut Department of Labor. The ideal website would allow employers to collaborate and network, as well as jobseekers to explore healthcare and manufacturing career pathways from the convenience of their mobile device, with the capability to directly send emails for more information. The incorporation of easy access to our social media platforms along with news features, including information pertaining to upcoming events, would be ideal. An interactive calendar of RSP related events, along with easy and direct registration and attendance tracking capability would also be ideal. We are looking to streamline the design and aesthetic of the site while providing information to our target audiences as comprehensively as possible.
Scope of Work
Within your submission, please describe how you propose to manage the following topics regarding site redesign:
Content Management Software
Integrations (specifically, newsletter subscription)
Accessibility (ADA compliant)

• Flexibility: Adapt when needed to unforeseen project changes.
• Vision: Provide ideas for project beyond what is presented initially based on expertise in the field.
• User interface design: Ability to create user-centered design, making the user’s experience as seamless as possible.

The Orange County Transportation Authority (Authority) invites proposals from qualified consultants to develop an OC Bus marketing program on an as-needed basis. The budget for this project is $220,000 for a two-year term.
The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) was formed in June 1991 to address ongoing transportation needs in Orange County. The concept behind OCTA was to create one agency to develop and implement transportation programs designed to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality. OCTA’s countywide bus system operates more than 50 routes.
The goal of the OC Bus Marketing Program is to retain existing customers, as well as to increase overall ridership through increased customer trips and induced trial usage among non-riders. OCTA is looking for a firm to develop marketing campaigns to target existing riders and new customers for more frequent and trial use and develop an innovative approach to generate interest.
OCTA is looking for a firm with proven experience with the following:
▪ Strategic marketing plan development
▪ Marketing and digital marketing campaign development; email management and optimization; social media and mobile marketing strategy development, implementation and optimization
▪ Online and traditional media planning, buying, and optimization
▪ Ethnic marketing and translation
▪ Print and digital creative development, design/copywriting, and production
▪ Market/customer research, segmentation study, online survey design, implementation, and reporting
▪ Photography, collateral production, printing, distribution, specialty printing, and
other promotional items as required
GOALS AND STRATEGIES
• Create and implement customer retention programs to enhance OC Bus customer loyalty and riding frequency.
• Design and conduct grassroots marketing and outreach programs to educate customers about how to ride and the benefits of riding OC Bus.
• Promote special fare/pass programs and core/improved routes to retain current riders and attract new customers.
• Strategically select and target high-propensity market segments with cost-effective marketing programs.
• Support OCTA’s ridership initiatives through strategic marketing and communications.
• Pivot when needed to accommodate new and different directions
SCOPE OF SERVICES
As the demographics and communication behaviors in Orange County residents continue to evolve, marketing OC Bus service is becoming increasingly complex. In order to address churn and grow ridership, new concepts for current customer retention need to be developed alongside targeted campaigns to attract prospective riders.
To address these changes and implement a comprehensive OC Bus marketing program, OCTA is planning to retain a full-service firm (Prime Contractor) to perform various marketing activities. Those bidding as the prime contractor on this RFP are encouraged to subcontract tasks outside their expertise. Applicants should have knowledge of and be able to act as a prime contractor or employ the services of a subcontractor in each of the following areas:
Through this Invitation for Bids (“IFB”), the New York State (“NYS”) Department of Health (the “Department” or “DOH”) is seeking competitive bids from a qualified organization for Snow Plowing and Snow/Ice Removal services including Sanding and Salting for The David Axelrod Institute and Griffin Laboratory, as further detailed in Section 4 (DETAILED SPECIFICATIONS). It is the Department’s intent to award one (1) contract from this procurement.
Introductory Background: The Wadsworth Center is New York State’s public health laboratory. The David Axelrod Institute and the Griffin Laboratory are two facilities in the Albany, NY area which house many of the Wadsworth Center’s major public health programs. It is necessary to hire a contractor to plow, salt and remove snow from parking areas and walkways at both facilities. Without regular snow/ice removal and preventative treatment measures, parking would be negatively impaired and the safety of employees and guests would be at risk while on the premises. Failure to provide adequate snow/ice removal would also disrupt the Wadsworth Center’s ability to perform critical public health testing services. The selected Contractor will be providing annual snow plowing and snow/ice removal services, including sanding and salting, at the following Wadsworth Center facilities:
• David Axelrod Institute - 120 New Scotland Avenue, Albany, NY
• Griffin Laboratory – 5668 State Farm Road, Slingerlands, NY

Please note that this IFB and the awarded Bidder’s Bid will become part of the Contract as Appendix B and C, respectively.
It should be noted that Appendix A of Attachment 8, “Standard Clauses for New York State Contracts”, contains important information, terms and conditions related to the Contract to be entered into as a result of this IFB and will be incorporated, without change or amendment, into the Contract entered into between DOH and the successful Bidder. By submitting a response to this IFB, the Bidder agrees to comply with all the provisions of the Contract, including all of the provisions of Appendix A.
Note, Attachment 7, the Bidder’s Certified Statements, must be submitted by each Bidder and includes a statement that the Bidder accepts, without any added conditions, qualifications or exceptions, the contract terms and conditions contained in this IFB including any exhibits and attachments, including, without limitation, Attachment 8.

Questions will not be accepted by telephone or mail.Description: Housing resources of Western Colorado is seeking a vendor to redesign, build, and deploy a new website for our organization. The selected vendor will design a new website that allows us to connect with various target audiences, allowing them to identify and review the information they need. The new website must be client focused, allowing new and existing clients to find their way to the programs that best suit their needs and current housing situation. Additionally, this site will play a key role in attracting new donors, grant makers and staff.
Housing Resources for Western Colorado is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit that serves renters, homebuyers, and homeowners across 15 counties in Western Colorado. Our mission is to advance equitable housing and healthy communities through education, empowerment, development, and preservation. Our services include:
• Housing counseling & education
• Home rehabilitation lending
• Affordable rentals
• Weatherization services
• Self-help/sweat equity home building
Not all services are offered across our entire service territory. Where we do not provide a specific service, we try to connect residents with other organizations who can assist them. Many of our services are provided at no charge to our clients, although we do have some fee-for-service offerings. We are funded through grants, donations, sponsorships and fees generated by some of our services.
New Website Objectives
The primary objectives of our new website will be to:
• Provide an easy route for navigating to program information, starting with the client as the focus.
• Provide secure and easy client data and document collection, at least through initial intake phase for all programs.
• Clearly demonstrate what we do and who we serve.
• Highlight program success stories.
• Allow donors to make donations easily and securely.
• Highlight donors and sponsors.
• Provide information to other stakeholders.
• Represent our brand, mission, and vision clearly.
Navigation: HRWC’s current website is not organized with our clients in mind. The navigation and menu terminology used make it difficult for the audience to figure out how to get where they need to go and discover the services we offer. There are redundant menu items such as “Upcoming Events” and duplicative or confusing pages such as “Careers” and “Employment Opportunities,” which add to the complexity of navigating around the site. Some important pages such as job opportunities and donations are buried in the menu, making it difficult to find them.
Look & Branding: Imagery is not well utilized, and current photographs do not represent our brand, clients, activities, or service area effectively.
Mission, Impacts & Story Telling: Although our mission statement is presented in a primary position on the homepage, the other elements of our website do not effectively highlight our success stories. Updates & Additions: Making updates, especially to the homepage is clunky and unintuitive. For example, it is difficult to update the yearly impacts section of the home page, and so these are out of date. Other areas of the website such as the “News” section have not been maintained and so lack relevant and up-to-date information.
New Website Functionality Requirements
• Easy navigation for clients and stake holders
• Clear presentation of program information
• Easy for staff to update
• Multiple site admins/editors 3
• Multiple communications options directly from the website
• Secure donations option, or ability to direct donors to donation portal
• Easy, secure, and common intake form for client data collection
• Easy and secure document collection
• Board and employee portal options
• Integration or easy navigation to outside portals or tools
• Desktop, tablet, and cellphone friendly layout
• Compatible with screen readers
• ADA compliant New Website Wish List
• Integration with online classroom portals
• Multiple language options
• Ability to accept online payments
• Ability to RSVP/sign up for events
• Ability to take occasional donations.
• Potential to take online payments for fee-based services in the future.RFP Site

Universities have a need for Social Media Advertising. Social media advertising continues to grow year-to-year and is an essential medium for universities to reach new students and maintain their social media presence. By allowing a term contract, universities will maintain their social media presence over the term of the award. With social media advertising at the forefront of advertising, university ad placements are always increasing. Current world events make it challenging to predict the best outlet for advertising (social media is likely to play a larger role) with more perspective University community members spending more time indoors and plugged in. Without the ability to purchase social media advertising, universities will not be able to reach new students, new employees, and maintain outreach with alumni, resulting in financial loss. The university, on information and belief, has concluded that only one vendor can meet its need or can meet the need economically. That vendor is Twitch. Twitch is the only vendor that can satisfy the need to advertise on Twitch. The university has provided detailed justification to support its conclusion as shown on the attached Sole Source Justification Form. Although the university has presented this as a sole source procurement, we are seeking competitive information from firms with the capability of meeting the university's need (even if performed in a manner different from what has been presented) to contact us and provide sufficient information to show the need can be met. If we receive that information, the Chief Procurement Officer will offer a public hearing to consider the matter. Hearing information is described below.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the item or service is copyrighted or patented and is not available except from the holder of the copyright or patent.RFP Site
