NEW UPDATE For ON-Demand IT Services / Replacement of Task-based IT Services VOR Arrangement (VOR-OSS_00430429)

On January 10, 2018, the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services (MGCS) and Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS) met with the IT Association of Canada, the National Association of Canadian Consulting Businesses, and the Ontario Small and Medium Business Coalition to seek additional feedback on the business model of the new Request for Bids (RFB) to establish the ON-Demand IT Services VOR arrangement.

The vendor associations provided wide-ranging, substantive information, perspectives and insights. MGCS and TBS thank the vendor associations for participating in this consultation and appreciate receiving this body of information.

Jan-17-2018-NEW UPDATE for ON-Demand IT Services / Replacement of the Task-based I&IT Services Vendor of Record Arrangement (VOR-OSS_00430429)

The Ministry of Government and Consumer Services (MGCS), in partnership with Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS), is working to finalize the Request for Bids (RFB) for the new ON-Demand IT Services VOR arrangement.

A revised business model has been developed based on vendor feedback from the draft RFB issued earlier in 2017.

The Ministry had initially planned to release the RFB in late November 2017. We have deferred the release of the RFB to seek additional feedback, through various vendor associations, on the revised business model of the RFB.

In this context, MGCS and TBS met with the IT Association of Canada, National Association of Canadian Consulting Businesses, and Ontario Small and Medium Business Coalition on January 10, 2018.

To ensure that all interested parties have access to the information presented at that meeting, we have posted the slide deck on the Ontario Tenders Portal (tender_5252; RFI_555). We will also post a summary of feedback received at the meeting at the same portal location.

Once a release date for the RFB is confirmed, we will provide an update on the Ontario Tenders Portal.

The ministry will also be deferring the release of the RFB for a Vendor Management System (VMS) to 2018.

Update for ON-Demand IT Services / Replacement of the Task-based I&IT Services Vendor of Arrangement (VOR) arrangement (VOR OSS_00430429)

On August 18, 2017, the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services (MGCS) provided an update that the existing Task-based I&IT VOR arrangement (OSS VOR-00430429) would be extended for a 12-month period ending September 30, 2018. That process is underway and all vendors currently qualified on this VOR arrangement have been sent contract amendment documents. The 12-month extension period is open only to vendors currently on the existing VOR arrangement.

To ensure the new ON-Demand IT Services VOR arrangement is in place no later than September 30, 2018, the ministry intends to conduct an open competitive procurement process by releasing a Request for Bids (RFB) on the Ontario Tenders Portal around November 2017.
In response to inquiries about this process, the ministry is pleased to provide additional information.

The RFB will take into consideration the feedback received in response to the draft RFB issued earlier this year. Bidders who successfully meet the requirements and qualifications set out in the RFB will be eligible to provide services to the Ontario Government through the ON-Demand IT Services VOR arrangement. While the ministry will continue to require quality assurance standards, a quality assurance certificate will not be required to submit a bid. In the event that quality assurance certification is required, qualified vendors will be required to undertake certification during the contract term as specified in the RFB.

The RFB will also introduce new roles on the VOR arrangement. The ministry will use market rates as a starting point to determine the maximum per diem rates for these and all roles on the VOR arrangement. Treasury Board Secretariat released an RFB on August 28, 2017, on the Ontario Tenders Portal, to select a vendor to conduct market rate research and other services. The bidder selected to provide these services will be ineligible to participate on the ON-Demand IT Services VOR arrangement.

In addition, the ministry will release an RFB for a Vendor Management System (VMS), around November 2017, to further support the ON-Demand IT Services VOR arrangement. The bidder selected to provide these services will be ineligible to participate on the ON-Demand IT Services VOR arrangement.

Vendors interested in providing ON-Demand IT Services are encouraged to register on the Ontario Tenders Portal to ensure they receive notification of the RFB when it is available.
