Information Technology Provider RFP
The Basalt Chamber of Commerce invites the submission of proposals for the an IT partner/provider for ongoing IT services. Previously our vendor was Trailhead Technology, however Erik Johnson has now transitioned to a full-time position with Basalt Fire. If this RFP is not a right fit for your organization, but you know of another, please feel free to forward this page to a potential candidate.
The deadline is January 4, 2019 at 5 p.m. MST.* The projected date for contract commencement is at the end of January 2019.
*The goal of this RFP process is to find a suitable firm to help us take the Chamber (and its infrastructure) to the next level. We recognize that the time frame is tight with the holidays, however responses will serve as a starting point for a greater IT conversation. Thank you in advance for considering this project.
The Basalt Chamber needs a provider to manage our email system, provide occasional desktop support and help us with long-term infrastructure strategies so we are secure and scalable. We are open to different solutions, i.e. we have Outlook Exchange, but are not married to it. Our goal is to create a system using solutions that will grow with us as the organization matures. Our bylaws require that we use services from a Chamber member for annual expenses over $1,000.
Full disclosure – prior to the Basalt Chamber, our Executive Director spent three years as the Communications Manager for the IT Division at Northeastern University. In that position she worked with every IT department and was the communications lead on all major projects and security initiatives. Kris had to understand the systems we used, then explain it to the non-geek public in plain English. While she’s no expert in IT, she will likely understand more than your average client.
All correspondence pertaining to this proposal should be directed to Kris Mattera’s attention at email@example.com. If you have any questions, please contact her. Potential firms may ask questions, or if it is more helpful, a 15-minute conversation can be arranged.
Thank you in advance for considering this project.
