Capital & Coast District Health Board (CCDHB) intends to procure data visualisation business intelligence (BI) software before December 2017.
A RFI was sought in February. There were 19 responses to the RFI. The DHB thanks all respondents for supporting the indicative business case.
In March our ELT has endorsed an indicative business case for using new data visualisation BI software and authorised a competitive tender process to be undertaken. The outcome of this process will be a detailed business case supporting a preferred provider. There is no guarantee that the detailed business case will be accepted.
Likely two-stage process:
The high level of interest may mean that a two stage process will be undertaken: registration of interest (ROI) and short-listing, followed by request for proposal. The exact nature of the process will be determined before the end of March and will be clear when the proposal process is listed on GETS.
We expect to issue the ROI in April. Given the Easter and the school holidays at the start of the month, it may be closer to the end of April.
We are exploring the option of requesting that the bulk of the ROI submission is by video rather than ‘paper’. We would still accept ‘paper’ submissions but feel that the nature of the software product lends itself better to video. We would detail our expectations about the structure and content of any such video and we may choose to provide anonymised data to assist you to tailor the video to our situation. There would be some requirements that could not easily be shown in video and those would require a ‘paper-based’ submission. Please send in any concerns you would have about this kind of process to Stuart McCaw by Monday 27 March, 9am.
Communications prior to the issuing of the ROI
The DHB does not wish to receive product presentations prior to the issuing of the ROI. However, if vendors wish to speak to someone prior to the issue date, they may contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the RFI process, vendors asked a number of questions that related to the DHB’s detailed requirements and many were technical. As we develop those requirements over the coming fortnight, we would appreciate it if you could please email Stuart McCaw with any questions you feel need answering as part of the ROI documentation.
Please have those questions to Stuart by Monday 27 March, 9am
