BCA Use of Vendor Staffing
The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) utilizes vendors to augment IT staffing, complete project work and provide training on vendor software/systems. Participation can vary from a single individual working a single issue, to an entire team working the duration of a project.
Where to Find Opportunities
The BCA utilizes three avenues to meet its vendor needs: open requests for proposals, Statement of Work Master Contract 902TS and the ASAP-IT Program.
SITE Master Contract Program
The State of Minnesota Department of Administration and Office of MN.IT Services (MN.IT) are introducing the SITE (Seeking IT Expertise) Program as a successor to the existing 902TS Master Contract Program. This program serves as one of several avenues for State of Minnesota agencies and other local units of government to contract for IT-related services. The purpose of this master contract program is to provide a streamlined approach for state agencies and other governmental units to secure highly-skilled contractors via a fast and intuitive process. At the same time, this program provides a continuously open, application-based opportunity for vendors large and small to access state business. This program runs from 4/16/2014 to 4/15/2019.
Questions about the RFP process should be directed to MNJIS Contracts Manager Maureen Janke at 651-793-2720 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
