Northeastern Illinois University (NEIU) is seeking Proposals from qualified firms to provide consulting services for a Cognos Report Solution Upgrade.

Over the past four years, NEIU successfully implemented the Sungard Higher Education Suite of Applications which included Banner 7 for Student and Academic Systems, Finance, Human Resources and Payroll; the Luminis III Portal; and the Operational Data Store (ODS) and Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) including the reporting tool Cognos. NEIU is now fully in production with all components.

Test instances exist for all Banner applications as well as the Luminis portal. ODS, EDW and Cognos were implemented at the end of the project, with only a production environment fully deployed. The test environments exist, but only in a partially implemented state.

NEIU is now ready to implement the Banner 8 upgrade and bring all modules to the most current release. While this is being done, NEIU wants to upgrade to the latest version of Cognos, create the proper test environments for ODS, EDW and Cognos, as well as expand our knowledge of Cognos thru training and package development. Requirements for the COGNOS Report Solution Upgrade are provided in the attached RFP document.
Northeastern Illinois University strongly supports the participation of businesses owned by Minorities, Females and Persons with Disabilities (MAFBE either on a direct basis or though sub-contracting efforts.

Phone: (773) 442-5308

Submit three copies of the response as defined in the specifications. The University reserves the right to accept or reject any and all responses or parts thereof. Illinois Department of Human Rights (IDHR) eligibility number is required on all proposals.

This transaction is subject to the State Board of Elections registration and certification requirements of Public Act 095-0971.
