  • Please clarify: “The proposal must identify the proposed team members’ current work commitments to other services in sufficient detail to indicate the organization, and all the individuals assigned to the project, will be able to mee the needs of BCAG.” (VI. Proposal Content Requirements – C. Personnel, Qualifications, Experience, and References).
  • BCAG requires to know who the proposed team is and what their commitment level is to other clients.  We understand every provider likely has several or even many clients. We need to know the proposed team has the ability to respond to IT issues and manage solutions efficiently and quickly. It is of little benefit to us if a proposed team is understaffed or unsupported in taking us on as a client.
 
  • The RFP indicates that Transdev staff are supported by their Corporate IT.  It lists that there are 38 workstations: 12 for BCAG Staff and 26 for Transdev IT staff.  Will the proposer need to provide support to the 26 Transdev staff and their 26 workstations or is that handled by Transdev Corporate IT?.
  • BCAG has historically provided support for computers purchased by BCAG and utilized by Transdev. Following the Kaseya Ransomware Attack in July 2021, Transdev has determined a more robust and secure IT protocols are necessary.  There currently exists a shared type of managed IT between BCAG and Transdev and is unique to the capabilities of both sides.  Upon selection of an IT provider, this relationship will require assessment to determine the best way to continue.
