REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL



The following is a request for proposal (RFP) for a Law Enforcement Records Management system for the Monte Vista Police Department (MVPD). Our current RMS is from Spillman, the Millennium edition, and is no longer supported. Proposals will be considered with both transfers of legacy data and without. However, it is anticipated that the MVPD will manually pull legacy data and import this data into the new system.

 Department Overview and Background

 The Monte Vista Police Department serves a population of 4,444 in the San Luis Valley of Southern Colorado. The department currently employs 12 full-time officers and one-part time officer, one code enforcement officer, one evidence/records technician and one half-time receptionist. It is anticipated that the department will grow by two officers during the coming year and that the City Clerk and Municipal Judges will become end users on the system.

 System Requirements

 Our department will have 20 total users, full and part time, on the system. We anticipate not more than 7 concurrent users, but that number could depend on configuration of the system. We are looking for a PC based system that stores information on the cloud. We would like to minimize any great expense on servers or infrastructure. The system should work over an internet connection rather than hard wired to a port. The system should be capable of remote updates by the vendor and will be evaluated on the transparency to the end user. Cost of maintaining the system will be evaluated as the “reasonable and customary” range. Systems will be evaluated on initial cost and the need for customization, with preference given to the most cost effective systems that deliver the most desirable modules and operations with the fewest needs for customization. The system must be compatible with NIBRS and will be evaluated as to the effectiveness of collecting information from the end user to compile a monthly NIBRS report, as opposed to manual input of NIBRS information. The system must be compatible with automated ticket writing solutions, such as, but not limited to Saltus digiTICKET.

 

 Responses and Evaluations:

 Responses to this RFP will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. MST on Friday, November 14, 2014. Responses should be mailed or e-mailed to:
