RFP Title/#: M67854-25-9-9000 - Source Sought Notice: Suite of Training Systems

Due Date: April 30, 2024 @ 2:00 PM ET

Description: Program Manager, Advanced Amphibious Assault (PM AAA) is planning for the design, development, and delivery of a suite of Training Systems incorporating advanced technological solutions to support the Amphibious Combat Vehicle (ACV) driver training.  This suite of training systems includes maintenance trainers, operator trainers, and digital classrooms.  This effort will include developing engineering drawings, manufacturing, and providing test support for the ACV Training Systems. This is not a request for instructors.

The ACV platform is currently being produced by BAE Systems (BAE) under competitively awarded contract M67854-16-C-0006.  The Government does not currently own the required rights to the ACV Technical Data Package (TDP); this will require Contractors to scan and model 3-D both virtually and hardware of the required components and their constituent parts, should a contract be awarded for this effort.  The Government will provide access to an ACV (a vehicle) as Government Furnished Equipment (GFE) to the successful Contractor, should a contract be awarded for this effort.  PM AAA desires the resultant Training Systems to maintain commonality with the ACV Family of Vehicles (FOV) (ACV-Personnel, ACV-Recovery, ACV-30mm, and ACV-Command variants).  The Government intends to make available to Contractors, software already developed via a previous effort that is built upon an Unreal Gaming Engine upon the start of the project.  This software consists of a surf zone and land scenarios and their accompanying physics models.  The software also includes 3-D modeling of the outside of the ACV-P variant and modeling of the driver’s station to include switch functionality. The Government is considering the incorporation of the Unreal Gaming Engine as a Brand Name Requirement as defined by FAR Part 6.302-1(c) for the purposes of requiring all potential offerors to incorporate this software into their solution.  The existing Driver Training System incorporates a realistic Unreal Gaming Engine environment that replicates the surf zone environment for students as part of its operating baseline.  The Program Manager is seeking standardization across all training platforms to gain increased training value in terms of safety, familiarization, and platform familiarization.  Interested vendors should submit any information that shows why their alternative solution or another gaming engine might offer a better solution than the Unreal Gaming Engine from a performance perspective and how its solution is compatible and interoperable with the Unreal Gaming Engine.  This information should include a description as to how their solution will enable a seamless training experience for students and minimize training discrepancies between its operating system and Unreal Gaming Engine.  The information should also address how they might close the gap on previous development to develop a fully immersive surf zone VR environment (6-9 months) and how their alternative platform incorporates open-source components that allow for easy and non-restrictive modification and development.

The Government may use the information received from this notice to justify a sole or limited source justification for Unreal Gaming Engine.

RFP Title/#: RFP 2023-03 - Managed Public Cloud Services
Due Date: Jan 2, 2024, 4:00 PM Portal Submit
Description: 

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 Requirementsand 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.

Furthermore:

•       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.

To support existing businesses or start-ups, the website shall provide information about state, regional, and local resources (including descriptions and links to member and other stakeholder entities), incentives, and workforce training programs at local community colleges.

SCOPE OF WORK:

Under the guidance of the NWCDC, the selected website developer will coordinate with council representatives to coordinate and create a regional economic development website for the Northwest Colorado region of Moffat, Rio Blanco, Routt counties, and all municipalities within.

RFP Title/#: Regional Sector Partnerships Website Host & Design
Due Date: Dec 1, 2023 4:00PM - Email Submit
Description: 

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.

Project Overview

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:

  • Building a website that is relatively easy to update and user-friendly
  • A website that would follow a logical outline format as much as possible - a few big categories and, within each, several clear sub-categories
  • A forums page - interactive that can be searched and archived (may include an internal chat/direct messaging feature)
  • Networking features
  • Image scroll of lifestyles in the region - (what may attract talent)
  • Success stories of either talent or businesses
  • News Feed - events, milestones, achievements, and blog posts
  • Events calendar with easy registration and secure attendance tracking capabilities
  • A funding resource tab - "Show Me the Money" - with links solely for business funding i.e. equipment, training, staffing, etc., including a “contact me” prompt
  • For the Manufacturing RSP: easy to navigate "Business Resource" tab that would contain links to areas such as CCAT, MASC, CT Manufacture, Connex, other manufacturing RSPs in Ct, Ambassador Program, Chamber Manufacturing Coalitions, CT State Community Colleges, CareerConneCT, NWRWIB, Department of Labor, Next Generation Sector Partnerships, etc.
  • For the Healthcare RSP: an easy to navigate "Business Resource" tab that would contain links to areas such as Academy of Medical Training, RIBA Aspira Career Academy, other healthcare RSPs in CT, Ambassador Program, Chamber Healthcare Councils, CT State Community Colleges, NRWIB, CareerConneCT, Department of Labor, Next Generation Sector Partnerships, etc.
  • Interactive map of Connecticut highlighting the organizations that are members of the RSPs in Northwest CT
  • Link to online learning and training platform
  • Design/Re-design of RSP logos

Project Goals

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.

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.

INTRODUCTION

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.

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.

Current Website

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

Ecommerce Details:

• Ability to take occasional donations.

• Potential to take online payments for fee-based services in the future.

Digital curation, accessibility and website delivery of these educational curricular resources will serve as the primary focus for the CGLL website redesign process.

The website redesign will focus on developing a more inviting and user-friendly site for our target audiences - youth and educators. The website will continue to serve as our centralized location for organizing and sharing resources, lessons and professional learning opportunities to support educators engaging youth in Great Lakes Literacy across the basin. Primary improvements will focus on modernizing design and web functionality, design that enhances the user’s access and experience, and offers analytics and evaluation capabilities. Beyond the sharing content, it is equally important that the CGLL website and shared resources are digitally accessible supporting all our learners’ needs.

Requirements / Deliverables.

Client: The Agency of Digital Services - Vermont
RFP Title/#: Office of Chief Medical Examiner Death Investigation Management System
Due Date: Sept 20, 2023 4:30 PM (EST)
Description: Through this Request for Proposal (RFP) the Agency of Digital Services (hereinafter the “State”) is seeking to establish contracts with one or more companies that can provide a vendor-hosted Software as a Solution (SaaS) product to support the Vermont Department of Health (VDH) Office of Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) Death Investigation. Vermont law created a statewide medical examiner system back in the mid-1950s. From its inception, death investigation has relied upon community-based death investigators coordinated through a central system led by a forensic pathologist – the chief medical examiner. This system has evolved over the years from local investigators, the majority of whom were physicians, to today's statewide cadre of advanced emergency medical service technicians, paramedics and nurses in addition to physicians. It is the mission of the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) to ensure superior death investigations in a system that will operate efficiently and serve the needs of the citizens of Vermont. We do this by collecting and providing the best possible data to inform decisions at the individual, community, program and policy levels. The core function of the OCME is to conduct statutorily mandated (VSA 18 §506-509, 5205) medicolegal investigation of deaths occurring in Vermont, combining medicine and science with information from legal and law enforcement investigations to determine the cause and manner of death and further our understanding of the death circumstances. As such, the work of the OCME involves investigation of all non-natural deaths (accidents, suicides, and homicides), sudden deaths while in apparent good health, deaths without an attending physician, deaths in jail, prison, or police custody, deaths in psychiatric institutions, suspicious deaths, and deaths presenting a hazard to public health, welfare, or safety.  In conjunction with Vermont Health Statistics and Vital Records, the OCME routinely reviews all registered Vermont death certificates and works to ensure we have the best possible mortality data to inform public health. Our goal is always to provide technically excellent service in a timely fashion, with compassion and sensitivity for the special needs of bereaved families. Information related to death investigations is collected from and shared with multiple parties including OCME office staff, Medicolegal Death Investigators (MDIs), families of decedents, morgue staff, organ donation organizations, and partner organizations dependent on information.  This must be accomplished in a secure manner. Data must be available in a manner that supports syndromic surveillance, and for use in measurement, planning, and reporting publicly and to partner agencies. Vermont is specifically seeking a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution to support this work.  Users of this system will include at a minimum, Medical Examiners (currently 3), Death Investigators (~40), Support Staff (~10), as well as users with limited access (~10) including State public health analysts, consultants, interns, and representatives of Organ Procurement Organizations (via a defined role as outlined in the Functional Requirements section).  The system will be accessed both in a typical office or clinical setting as well as in the field. Any system must also support the OCME in its goal to achieve accreditation by National Association of Medical Examiners (NAME).  This includes demonstrating the Vendor’s familiarity with NAME requirements and ability of the system to meet security and other criteria to support accreditation. The OCME currently supports its needs via Occupational Research and Assessment (ORA)’s MediLog system.  Any proposal must include transfer and integration of legacy data from this system.

RFP Title/#: Social Media Advertising to Twitch - SoleSource #IPHEC2411
Due Date: Jul 26, 2023
Description: The University intends to award a contract for Social Media Advertising to Twitch, San Francisco, CA, for an estimated $25,000,000.

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.
