Document #:  JFSRLBOIS12015

Question:   1) What is the preferable overall price range for this project? This will help us understand the potential breadth and depth of the campaign(s) and also make appropriate budget recommendations for the criteria listed in the RFP. 2) Also, I would like permission to use the Department of Job and Family Services logo on our proposals, please. For aesthetic purposes, this logo would only be used in the upper right-hand corner of our proposalís cover page. Would this be alright with you? If I must obtain permission for logo use elsewhere, could you please direct me to the appropriate contact?

Answer:   1.) We did not quote a price range for this project. We will accept proposal and review them and award the work according to the criteria as outlined in the RLB. 2.) No....You do not have our permission to use our logo on your proposal.

Question:   The use of language like "templates", ADA compliance, CSS standards, cross-browser compatibility, etc indicate that there is an expectation of an HTML/CSS prototype in Phase I. Is this accurate? If so, what distinction are you making between the HTML/CSS prototype in Phase I versus the optional Phase II deliverable. Thank you for your time.

Answer:   The Phase 1 deliverable is a mock up for which all elements can be included in a website consistent with the standards. The Phase 2 deliverable is a demo where all screens must have legitimate destinations and dynamic content must be operational.

Question:   Is this the same RLB which came out in Feb 2011? if yes did any vendor got selected? If not can you share with us, the reason for not selecting any vendor from earlier submission? Thanks

Answer:   This is a very similar RLB to the one that was posted in February. Some very minor changes were made for this version. The previous RLB was not awarded as the result of internal constraints at ODJFS, realized after the RLB was published, that required resolution before the scope of the RLB could be addressed.
