First published Friday, October 12, 2012
The University awarded a contract for Continual RENAPS Database Services to Renaps Technology Canada Inc, Quebec, Canada, for an estimated $100,000.
RENAPS services completed the database project called "RiSC" as approved via sole source 061JCM. As a result, the RiSC database system is now more stable and efficient. However, now this database must be modified to accept two University-wide applications called Oracle Middleware Fusion and Weblogic. Due to these application-specific configurations, we need services from RENAPS who can do these configuration in a given amount of time. When these configurations are done properly and system gets installed on University servers, then we will roll-out to UIC Research office users.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the procurement is software license, upgrade or maintenance. RENAPS will provide the functional and technical expertise to monitor the system on a 24/7 basis while the application configurations are implemented. If system becomes unstable, additonal support services with response time of less than 1 hour will be guaranteed and resolution time guaranteed under 2 hours.
