Question:   Per the RFP: I. Introduction It is the Department’s intent to negotiate and execute any awarded contract hereunder by May 15, 2021, with testing to begin by July 1, 2021. Question: The RFP states, “It is the Department’s intent to negotiate and execute any awarded contract hereunder by May 15, 2021, with testing to begin by July 1, 2021." It is not possible for bidders other than the incumbent to meet this requirement. A program of this magnitude would take a minimum of 90 days to implement following contract award. We ask that the REPL strongly consider extending the program launch date in order to ensure a fair and competitive bidding process.

Answer:   The Division has considered your request and due to the fact that testing is critical to our processes, we are unable to extend the start time beyond the beginning of the fiscal year, July 1, 2021.
