RFP 91191: Network Infrastructure Assessment

University of Maryland University College (UMUC) is seeking a vendor to perform an assessment of its existing network infrastructure. Based on the conclusions of that assessment, the vendor is to offer design recommendations to optimize the performance of the existing environment. The intent of this Request for Proposal (“RFP” or “Solicitation”) is to allow network assessment providers an opportunity to present their qualifications, experience, and conceptual approach to meet the needs of UMUC.

UMUC is a world-renowned leader in the provision of online higher education. In response to increased competition and a rapidly changing landscape in the industry, UMUC needs an efficient network to support its Information Technology (IT) initiatives. The purpose of the requested assessment is to provide UMUC’s IT management with a clear understanding of the design, architecture, and network performance of the existing system and whether it is capable of meeting the current and future requirements of the University. The assessment will form the baseline from which UMUC will identify the infrastructure areas that offer the best investment opportunities to achieve desired network performance.

The primary objective of the project is to assess the infrastructure of four (4) UMUC worksites in relation to the University’s global network. The goal is to reduce the operational complexity of each site and simplify the network infrastructure to facilitate future system changes. The assessment will create documentation to be used for the reduction of operational complexity, and allow for expansion and migration of the UMUC network to a cloud environment. The selected Offeror will work with the Office of Analytics, Planning, and Technology to conduct the assessment and carry out the requested changes (if necessary). The proposed solution should provide network management features including, but not limited to, network documentation, the Offerer’s ability to identify existing problems, and the Offerer’s ability to change/upgrade an existing network. UMUC is looking for an Offeror with strong network assessment and implementation expertise and a proven methodology to recommend and execute changes leading to operational efficiency.

RFP 91148: IT Quality Assurance Testing Services Description


University of Maryland University College (UMUC) is soliciting proposals for the provision of comprehensive quality assurance testing services for UMUC's Office of Information Technology. The selected vendor will support UMUC by performing comprehensive quality assurance (“QA”) testing for its Information Technology departments. The University has a large portfolio of pending and/or contemplated worldwide technology initiatives requiring comprehensive QA support targeted for delivery over the course of the next three years, in addition to existing technology. Current UMUC technology includes, but is not limited to, customized applications designed to assist in the management of UMUC's complex and diverse business functions, processes, and requirements such as: PeopleSoft (Finance and HRSA); SalesForce; Jive; and Desire2Learn. UMUC's technology environment is ever evolving so the Vendor will need to be able to quickly adapt and supply expertise to a constantly changing set of technologies that will require QA testing and management. It is anticipated, therefore, that the size and composition of the QA team will vary from project to project, in some cases requiring a team of up to seven people or more, and the Vendor must be able to provide a scalable solution that responds to the dynamics of UMUC's project management schedule in addition to routine activities.
