for IT consulting services.
The Board of Trustees of Northeastern Illinois University is seeking proposals from qualified firms for services to develop a request for proposal that will result in a solicitation for the purchase of a fully integrated information system that will replace all, or most of, its current Administrative Information Systems (AIS). The AIS are comprised of four major components: Student Information Systems, Human Resources and Payroll, Business Information System, and Academic Courseware.
The development of the RFP must be guided by a thorough and concise business systems, gap and needs analysis conducted by the proposer. The selected company will familiarize itself with the mission, goals, and objectives of the University; meeting with key stakeholders to review current applications and processes.
The intent is to enable the University to improve access to data and services, allow for the use of web-enabling tools and applications, allow for the use of self-service tools and applications by the University community, present a consistent and unified user interface, and provide efficient performance in a secure and reliable manner.
A mandatory pre-proposal meeting is scheduled for Monday, October 27, 2003 at 1:30 in Room SU-214 of the Student Union Building.
