RFP: End User Computing & Peripherals, Device Lifecycle Management, and Associated Services MHEC-RFP-10282021
MHEC is seeking to solicit one or more technology providers to propose a full line of end user computing and peripherals, device lifecycle management solutions, and associated services. In addition to the applicable products, hardware, software, IT as a Service (ITaaS), managed services, service solutions, financing, or other associated services; any proposed solution needs to have as options: implementation costs, consulting fees, maintenance, technical support, security, and training to the extent necessary to fully utilize the solution. The intent of the solicitation will be to enter into a master agreement with a framework to allow providers to write orders and institutions to acquire products and services through a defined fulfillment channel and a starting point for price. This framework facilitates a direct relationship between the technology provider and institutions with discounted pricing as well as terms and conditions that are better than most institutions can negotiate individually. This process is designed to minimize the burden on administrative resources for institutions in the region, saving both time and money. Additionally, it allows both the institution and the provider to focus most of its energy on finding the technology solution that best fits the institutions needs and negotiating the providers order, instead of creating the contract itself.
All responses to this RFP must be received no later than December 14, 2021, 10 A.M. CT.
