Shared Services Environment

A Request for Proposals (RFP) was issued on July 10, 2002. By this RFP, the California Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) seeks proposals from qualified Vendors to (i) establish and operate a Technology Center for the judicial branch of the State of California; (ii) operate, maintain, and support the selected judicial branch computer systems and applications and associated peripherals; and (iii) perform network design services, telecommunications services, and software applications services. The scope includes the planning, transition, ongoing operation, application maintenance, production control, LAN/WAN/MAN support, help desk, security administration, and desktop support for the courts and systems supported by the Technology Center.

This is a two phase procurement. The AOC intends to select two Vendors for Phase One, each of which will be awarded a contract in the form of a professional services agreement ("the Phase One Contract"). The work scope of each Phase One Contract will be to develop a detailed statement of work, specifications and schedule (collectively, the "SOW") for Phase Two performance, establish prices for the Phase Two work and negotiate a Phase Two Contract. At the end of Phase One, each Phase Two Contract will be complete and ready for acceptance by the AOC. The AOC intends to select one of the Vendors for performance of Phase Two, by executing the Phase Two Contract that has been negotiated with that Vendor.

Proposals must be received prior to 4:00p.m., August 12, 2002, and include all required attachments. Oral responses will not be accepted.
