    • California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) Strategic Offender Management System (SOMS) Request for Proposal (RFP) CDCR-5225-113 June 18, 2008 IX. Evaluation IX.A.Introduction All Initial Final and Final Proposals will be evaluated in a multi-step process to determine the responsive proposal that offers the best combination of functionality and value to the State. The best business solution is that solution that meets all requirements set forth in the RFP and offers the State the best combination of value, functionality, and cost as determined through the evaluation process specified in this section of the RFP. The process includes reviews of Initial Final Proposals, with confidential feedback to each Bidder, followed by a detailed evaluation of Final Proposals. Once the State has determined which proposal, if any, offers the best business solution, that proposal will become the basis for a contract. This section presents the process that the State will follow in evaluating proposals submitted by bidders in response to this RFP. The evaluation process is comprised of a thorough review of each proposal to validate the inclusion of mandatory components, followed by a scored evaluation based on criteria defined later in this section. IX.B.Evaluation Team The State has established an Evaluation Team comprised of individuals selected from the CDCR management, staff, and their representatives. The Evaluation Team will be responsible for the review and evaluation of Bidder proposals in accordance with the process described in this section of the RFP. The team will use consensus to determine pass/fail and to arrive evaluation scores for each bidder. The State will engage additional qualified individuals during the process to assist the Evaluation Team in gaining a better understanding of technical, financial, contractual, or program issues. These individuals will not be part of the consensus process to arrive at an evaluation score. IX.C.Evaluation and Selection Process The process of evaluating Bidder proposals will consist of the following in order: • Review of Pre-Qualification Responses • Review of Conceptual Proposals • Confidential Discussions with Bidders • Review of Initial Final Proposals • Confidential Discussions with Bidders • Evaluation of Final Proposals 0BEvaluation 3

The Evaluation Team will conduct the following reviews: 1. Review to identify whether the Bidder met all minimum requirements for references and experience 2. Review to identify whether the Bidder met all administrative requirements stated 3. Review to identify whether the Bidder’s key personnel met all minimum requirements as stated IX.E.Review of Conceptual Proposals Conceptual Proposal responses received by the date and time specified in Section I.F – Key Action Dates will be opened and reviewed in detail for compliance with RFP requirements. The Evaluation Team will conduct the following reviews: 1. Review to identify whether the Bidder addressed all of the areas necessary in describing their overall solution approach as documented in Section VI.B.7 – Bidder’s Overall Solution Approach IX.F. Confidential Discussions with Bidders The Evaluation Team will meet with each Bidder to discuss the conceptual proposals and any other items from the RFP the State deems appropriate. This confidential discussion will allow the Bidder to request clarification or ask questions specific to its proposed solution without having to share those questions with the other participating Bidders, thus protecting the confidential nature of each unique solution. These confidential discussions may include demonstrations and assessment of key team members. Please refer to Section II.B.5 – Bidder’s Confidential Discussions for information on the rules and format of these discussions. The Evaluation Team will be looking for those bidders with the following: • Most skilled and experienced key personnel / team members as well as most collective company experience • Solution that is closest to meeting SOMS functional requirements “out of the box” or with minimum customization / custom development based on demonstrations given • Best approaches in the areas of implementation, data conversion, change management and training 0BEvaluation 4

Review and Evaluation of Initial Final Proposals Initial Final Proposals received by the date and time specified in Section I.F – Key Action Dates will be opened and reviewed in detail for compliance with RFP requirements. The Evaluation Team will conduct the following reviews: 1. Review to identify and document areas in which the proposal appears to be non-responsive or defective, fails to address requirements, is unclear, demonstrates lack of responsibility, or introduces potential risk. The review will address administrative, functional, technical and management requirements Table IX-1 below illustrates the maximum points for each scorable requirement area.

IX.I. Proposal Evaluation The proposal review will include a comprehensive, detailed evaluation of each Bidder’s unique solution. Proposals will be evaluated and scored by the Evaluation Team. Following the scoring of proposals evaluation criteria, cost components will be scored, and a final score will be determined for each proposal. The cost component is evaluated at the end of the process in order to maintain objectivity and avoid bias that could emerge as a result of exposure to cost information prior to the assessment of other components. The proposal evaluation criteria and process are described thoroughly in this section. 0BEvaluation 6

Costs NOTE: Cost information will not be opened until the Evaluation Team has completed the previous steps in the evaluation process. (Maximum Score = 600 points) Cost information will only be evaluated for responsive bids. If a Bidder’s proposal has been determined to be non-responsive during the earlier steps, cost information will not be opened. The cost assessment will incorporate costs defined in Section VII - Cost, and provided by the Bidder in Appendix C: Cost Worksheets. The evaluation will assess the total cost of the proposed solution, including the sum of software costs, implementation costs, and average labor costs for the contract. Each Bidder’s cost component score will be calculated based on the ratio of the Bidder's cost to the lowest cost from the other responsive proposals, multiplied by the maximum number of cost points available. The formula for scoring the cost component of each proposal is as follows: ( Lowest Total Cost Bid x Total Cost Points Available ) Bidder Total Cost To help illustrate this process, refer to Table IX-2, for an example of the cost score calculation process. Cost figures in the examples explain the calculations and have no other significance.
