    • California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) Strategic Offender Management System (SOMS) Pre-Qualification of Bidders CDCR-5225-113 June 18, 2008 BIDDER PRE-QUALIFICATION CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS AND REHABILITATION STRATEGIC OFFENDER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM I. Introduction I.A. Purpose The purpose of this Pre-Qualification of Bidders is to solicit proposals from Qualified Business Partners (QBPs) to provide an integrated Strategic Offender Management System (SOMS) for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR). The major objectives of this project are to maximize offender, staff and public safety, increase the effectiveness of CDCR staff and improve CDCR’s ability to provide more effective programs and services to offenders. These include: • Automation of the Division of Adult Operations and Adult Programs (AOAP) and Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) major business functions – intake, classification, sentence calculation, movements, scheduling, discipline; holds, wants and detainers; gang management; property; visitation, programs, and pre-parole and release; • Automation of CDCR’s remaining business functions – transportation, parole operations, appeals and grievances, and remaining administrative functions; • Automation of routine and manual offender case management activities; • Optimization of interfaces with internal and external agencies to locate and manage offender information; and • Implementing an automated case/workload management system that includes trend analysis functionality. The State has mandated a new procurement process for projects of this type and size. The new process will be used to procure a comprehensive solution to support an effective offender case management system. This process will allow CDCR to identify and form a business partnership with a firm and their solution partners that possess the expertise to design, integrate, and implement a comprehensive offender case management solution for CDCR. The solution-based procurement method focuses requirements on business need (“what must be done”), not on current methods or constraints (“how it is currently done”). This is evidenced by the requirements statements themselves which are written at a summary level of detail. In doing this, CDCR is prompting QBPs to propose solutions to address the underlying business need without being constrained by CDCR’s current methods. Receiving these solutions for consideration clearly benefits CDCR. The QBPs also benefit in that they are -3-
    • California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) Strategic Offender Management System (SOMS) Pre-Qualification of Bidders CDCR-5225-113 June 18, 2008 afforded the opportunity to propose a solution which they feel meets CDCR needs while also reflecting industry best-practice. Steps in this process include CDCR and the QBP engaging in dialogue to strengthen the QBP’s understanding of the requirements and the procurement process. Several reviews and discussion meetings are scheduled during the procurement phase of this project. CDCR values the QBP’s assessment and input regarding the requirements and this process. Accordingly, it is very important that the QBP have a clear understanding of the solution-based procurement process, their role in the process, and CDCR requirements so they can take appropriate action to help ensure success. CDCR seeks to select and enter into a contract with a QBP to provide a modern integrated Strategic Offender Case Management System to replace the existing legacy processes, both automated and manual. In addition, the solution maybe required to interface or may eliminate interface requirements with external systems. CDCR is not specifying hardware, software, or a proposed solution, but has infrastructure, telecommunications and architectural constraints that will be published. I.B. Bidder Qualification Process I.B.1. Submission of Responses Vendors should carefully review the Vendor Qualification Criteria in Section II. To assure meeting the time constraints of the SOMS project, a schedule for the qualification of vendors has been developed which can be found in Section I.D - Key Action Dates. In order to qualify as a potential bidder, vendors should submit the completed Pre-Qualification package, to the contact person listed in Section I.C - Procurement Coordinator, no later than the date specified in Section I.D - Key Action Dates Responses will be reviewed for completeness and to ensure minimum requirements are satisfied. The vendors meeting all of the minimum requirements and providing all necessary documents on time will be invited to participate in the SOMS procurement process as QBPs. I.B.2. Bidder Qualification Process The SOMS project Evaluation Team will review each response according to the qualification process described in this section. This will be a multi-step process. First, each response will be reviewed to determine if all necessary documentation has been provided as described in Section II.C. Second, each response will be reviewed to determine if it meets the minimum requirements listed in Section II. The vendor’s response will be verified and validated by contacting customer references. Vendors must indicate a primary and secondary contact person for each reference who can effectively validate the response submitted. It is the vendor’s responsibility to provide current contact information for each reference. -4-

    • California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) Strategic Offender Management System (SOMS) Pre-Qualification of Bidders CDCR-5225-113 June 18, 2008 I.E. Proposed System CDCR will hire, as the successful bidder, a systems integrator who will be responsible for architecting a complete solution. A complete solution will be made up of three components: • Application Solution – The solution will support the functional requirements stated in the RFP. 5 The systems integrator will be the Prime Contractor, requiring it to establish partnerships with solution providers prior to responding. • Data Conversion – This will include both paper and automated file conversion. • Infrastructure – This will include only SOMS-specific hardware and software. CDCR will have the base infrastructure in place (due to the CITIP project) prior to the rollout of SOMS. The SOMS Institution and Parole application solution will be multiple applications that will be integrated into a single application architecture. The system integrator will be responsible for providing the software and all services required to design, develop, implement and support SOMS. The project will phase in functionality for each application. In addition to providing the 6software and all implementation and support activities, the systems integrator will be responsible for the following services: • Project Management - The selected vendor will be responsible for developing all the project plans and associated schedules required to successfully implement the SOMS solution. • Business Process Change Management - The selected vendor will identify any procedural changes needed in order to minimize customization of the software and assist CDCR in developing the necessary change management activities, training and manuals required to implement any new and /or changed business processes. The selected vendor will require support from CDCR to successfully complete this activity in the form of business focused teams referred to as “tiger teams”. 5 Changed in Addendum #2 6 Changed in Addendum #2 -6-
