This request for proposal (RFP) is primarily intended to position Chicago State University to significantly enhance the service solutions and business processes which are currently employed to deliver online payments, installment payment plans and student refunds. The current solutions rely heavily on manual processes which are inefficient. The primary goal is to maximize automated solutions and to achieve a high percentage of electronic delivery of student refunds for the Fall 2010 semester. The goal is to have these solutions tested, implemented and fully in place by August 15, 2010. We are aware this is an aggressive but realizable time frame.
The strategy is to obtain complete solutions from several vendors who have demonstrated they offer high quality state of the art solutions to a significantly large higher education customer base and who are partners with SunGard Higher Education. Chicago State University uses the SunGard Banner Version 7.4 enterprise software and wishes to ensure that the business solutions it employs are fully compatible with Banner and are regularly updated consistent with Banner updates in a seamless fashion.
Key objectives are:
1. To avoid additional hard and soft costs and minimize associated expense as the Banner and partner business software solutions are updated.
2. Hosted solutions are the most desirable.
3. The University looks to its business partner(s) to fully own and address PCI compliance and to avoid storing any credit card data on University systems or servers.
