The University awarded a contract for Identity and Access Management to Twilio Incorporated, San Francisco, CA, for an estimated $62,400.
Purchase Twilio SMS and Voice minutes/service as well as Maintenance Renewal for Support. This is used by all three universities. One of the requirements for the Identity and Access Management Project is to be able to reset password via SMS and Voice capabilities. Twilio, Inc will allow us to integrate SMS and Voice functionality with midPoint, our identity and access management tool.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the Twilio is the only vendor that can provide support for the SMS and Voice Capability functionality that is currently available to our IAM Password Management Software.
