City Issues RFP for IT Services

The City of Talent, Oregon invites qualified providers to submit a proposal and statement of qualifications for professional information technology services for a three-year period beginning July 1, 2019. The qualified vendor will enable the City to maintain and improve information technology (IT) effectiveness, enhance its quality of services, minimize down time and support costs, ensure security of data and equipment, and maximize return on investment in IT. The city does not have professional IT staff.

The vendor will work in conjunction with the City Manager as the main point of contact for general IT infrastructure, equipment and employee needs. The City has approximately 25 full-time employees, and city departments include police, public works, community development, finance and administration located in three separate buildings, plus additional community-oriented space with minimal IT needs. Confidentiality of information is vital. The selected vendor and its employees will be required to sign and adhere to a confidentiality clause that information in the system must remain confidential under penalty of law. All vendor employees with access to the City network will be required to undergo fingerprint background checks at the vendor’s expense and be expected to maintain CJIS security standards and authorization at all times.

Applications submitted in response to this RFP will be reviewed by a team of City staff. The team will review all complete, eligible proposals received by the deadline. Upon evaluating the qualifications provided in the applications, the team will identify top vendors who may be invited for finalist interviews. The review team reserves the right to make a final decision without an in-person interview.
