The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois on behalf of the Division of Research Safety (DRS) is seeking proposals from qualified firms to provide C# web-based database project evaluation, database design and creation, application programming, software quality assurance, data conversion, technical support, and possibly project management from November 1, 2005 through June 30, 2006 with the option to renew for 5 additional annual renewal periods at the same terms and conditions based on satisfactory performance, a continuing need, and the availability of funds.
The proposer is required to evaluate and provide pricing for an initial project for the pathological waste application in response to the RFP. DRS desires the solution provider to suggest improvements to the project description method and to the project design itself.
Future projects and services from the solution provider will be dependent upon the provider's satisfactory performance, a continuing need, and the availability of funds. All contracted services will be considered 'work for hire' and DRS will retain ownership of the source code.
