RFP Q&A: Higher Education Information Technology Solutions (HEITS) for Data (document) Management Needs

Posted: Wednesday, March 16, 2016 - 12:39

The Midwestern Higher Education Compact (MHEC) through its Data Management Subcommittee of its Technologies Committee is competitively soliciting proposals on behalf of MHEC. The purpose of this Request For Proposal (RFP) is to establish one or more MHEC Master Price Agreement(s) with qualified vendor(s) for Higher Education Information Technology Solutions (HEITS) for Data (Document) Management Needs in accordance with the specifications of this RFP.

At a minimum the vendor(s) proposed offering shall be available for all eligible participants in the twelve (12) Midwestern state region of the Compact. MHEC will also entertain proposals to expand proposed offering to states within the other three Compacts in the country; the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE), the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB), and the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE); subject to each respective Compacts’ approval.

For the purposes of this RFP, the definition of a ‘document’ is very broad. A document might, and should, include things such as video auditions, retention records, electronic documents such as email or eforms, documents produced by various ERP systems, and of course, paper records. So a document for the purpose of this RFP is the data that the institutions need to capture and manage, no matter what the format.

Proposals are due March 31, 2016.
