Request for Proposal: WSIPC RFP No. 17‐11 Managed Security Services
WSIPC RFP No. 17‐11 Managed Security Services
WSIPC invites vendors to provide Proposals for solutions that address the software and technology services needs of the K‐12 educational community served by WSIPC. This includes educational entities primarily in Washington, but could also include Oregon, Montana, Alaska and Idaho. WSIPC also serves Regional Educational Service Districts and associated Public Agencies. We invite responsible proposers to respond to our request for Managed Security Services.
WSIPC plans to select multiple Vendors to satisfy the diverse needs of the education community. However, each response will be scored based on criteria included in this document. The results of the scoring process will eliminate some responders from further consideration. Our goal is to continue providing the education sector access to the best technology at the lowest possible cost.
Additional desired outcomes of this RFP are to provide Vendors with a forum for educating the K‐12 Community on technology advances and trends within the computer industry and to provide opportunities for Vendors to offer a broad range of cost‐effective solutions to K‐12 Clients.
