Question:   INTRANET - 1) Is there approval from myOhio to add the News Clip feature to the platform instead of using the systems News features? And if so, 2) could you describe the requirements of the feature or direct to where we can see a similar feature to estimate the effort. Example: What is the source, news in myOhio or external content? will it require its own workflow? What are the distribution channels expected to be supported(email, rss feeds, etc) Is the archive accessible to the general audience or only administrators? What are the administration tools/features expected? 3) If you are not able to describe the requirements for the feature, how is the vendor expected to estimate the effort for this feature?

This will be a custom component created within the IOP platform. 2) part a - screenshot link below 2) part b - Distribution channels - email 2) part c - Archive, accessible to everyone 2) part d - Administration tools - ability to send and publish email (see news clip portion of screenshot link below) http://procure.ohio.gov/pdf/DXPUC-20-01-001 screencaps.pdf

Question:   Given that RFP #0A1216R to pre-qualify more vendors for IOP projects is currently active, can this solicitation be delayed until more contractors are pre-qualified? We feel this would result in creating a more competitive solicitation.

Answer:   The State will not delay the current projects. These agency projects are time sensitive and any delays would impact the schedules.
