Staff Recommended Motion
Approval to Advertise a Request for Proposals for Community Development Enterprise Software
Staff desires to advertise the first of two Request for Proposals (RFP) with the intention of replacing the Town’s current enterprise business software. This RFP is to purchase or otherwise acquire the rights for community development software and any professional services necessary for implementation.
Although our technology infrastructure is stable, the Town’s enterprise business software is very old. Staff anticipates that an investment in modern enterprise business software will improve our current business operations and customer (citizen) experiences.
The scope of community development software includes all business processes related to land use applications, comprehensive plan amendments, rezoning, annexations, plan review and permitting applications of both residential and commercial projects. It also includes all business processes related to code enforcement and business licensing. It may also include business processes related to public works assets and pavement management and work orders.
Staff anticipates requesting to advertise a second RFP for enterprise financial software in April of next year.
The Town Attorney has reviewed and approved the language within this RFP.
Estimated advertisement cost: $300
(Not to exceed $250,000 in Fiscal Year 2021)
