Question:   Did DAS perform full and complete vendor market research in order to determine the best in class, or is the State betting it hopes on one single agency deployment four years ago (ref OA1276_Supplement 1).

Question:   Why would DAS issue a sole source Master Licensing Agreement to one vendor in ~hopes~ that "120 Agencies, Boards and Commissions across the state... COULD POTENTIALLY leverage the Service"? This seems onerous to these 120 entities that may have already implemented IT modernization procedures with other vendors, and may be further along in that process. (ref OA1276_Supplement 1).

Answer:   The Document Management Solution is an enterprise solution that was obtained through a competitive process. This Request for Proposal is for the continuation of this enterprise solution.
