ctcLink update for May 23, 2012

baby duck in waterIt might seem a little quiet on the ctcLink RFP front as the vendors have gone to their separate corners to busily prepare their project proposals. But, like a duck in water, while everything looks seamless and calm atop the water, there is a lot of activity and movement taking place below the surface.

The RFP vendor evaluation teams have been formed—in all, we have about 75 volunteers from across the CTC system.

Their job will be to review and rate the responses to the ctcLink RFP and that work will start June 27. But, they are already gearing up for the evaluation process by participating in an orientation session by phone, followed by a half-day workshop next week. The Hands-On workshop includes training on the evaluation toolkit to be used during the selection process. Participants will have an opportunity to review the weighting of the different criteria used to evaluate the proposals and will learn how to use the worksheets to track the scores they note for each of the three evaluation criteria levels.

When there is more to report, we’ll do it here. And, fair warning… We (on the ctcLink Project Team) are going to take every opportunity to thank everyone who has played (and will play) a role in the RFP process. System-wide involvement is so important to the success of this project. So, here it comes… THANK YOU!
