SECTION III Detailed Specifications Background Information Over the last few years, different University of Wyoming departments have developed individual in-house computing operations and other information technology infrastructures. The development often began as one or two small projects or applications that were needed to meet specific and unique departmental needs. In some instances these various systems naturally evolved in size and complexity to the point where some departments are now administering complex computer operations and infrastructures. The University’s information technology infrastructure has grown to a distributed system that is partly centralized and partly decentralized. Decentralization of information technology often results in greater departmental control and responsiveness while centralization creates economies of scale and increased system stability. An objective of this review is to evaluate the University’s current balance between these two concepts and __________________________________________________ 7 This document will be appended to the final contract
  8. 8. make recommendations for creating the appropriate balance to best meet the University’s mission. The best strategic use of information technologies will enable the campus community to effectively leverage limited resources, better manage information as the expensive and essential resource it is, and allow the campus to function at its maximum potential. As an example of the growth of decentralized systems, there are more than 60 unique, administrative servers located in various non-IT departments across campus serving a variety of functions. Additionally, there is approximately the same number of information technology titled positions residing in non-IT departments as there are within the University’s Division of Information Technology. In some cases, these departmental computing operations house critical or sensitive University of Wyoming data that may not be appropriately maintained or properly secured. In other instances, some of the services provided by these operations duplicate other centralized University resources, operations, applications, hardware, software or personnel. Some departments have recognized problems with their growing infrastructure and have considered moving parts of their operations to the Division of Information Technology. Because of limited Information Technology resources and other barriers they have been unable to make the move. There is concern that cost efficiencies that could finance new technology for the university may be lost through duplication of resources (personnel, physical space allocation, hardware and software). While there are legitimate reasons for stand-alone departmental information technology operations, an extensive and growing distributed computing environment that is not strategically integrated is unnecessarily costly and reduces efficiencies. There is further concern about the effect of decentralized operations and infrastructure on the planning and coordination of large technology projects that are intended to be campus-wide. Examples include the implementation of the network firewall, properly patching systems vulnerable to viruses and the integration of decentralized systems into campus-wide resources such as electronic calendars, e-mail lists, and directory services. An integrated plan for campus-wide system administration and maintenance is needed to control costs, ensure integration, and provide comprehensive security and data protection. Decentralized operations and infrastructure increases the difficulties in establishing technology policies and common standards for computing platforms, workstation and server management, software compatibility, licensing and training intended to achieve reliability and stability of the campus IT infrastructure. The University’s need for technology is ever increasing. Associated institutional costs also increase as the need for technology increases. The University must develop an overall information technology infrastructure strategy and plan that best meets the University’s mission in the most efficient and cost effective manner. The University of Wyoming’s auditing firm and Information Technology have recommended a review of the University’s overall information technology structure and operations. The purpose of this review is to conduct an evaluation and make recommendations to create efficiencies where possible without sacrificing departmental needs. The purpose does not reflect a specific desire to centralize operations, but to ensure that information technology support and services are cost-effective, consistent and integrated across campus, and properly balanced between centralized and decentralized services. Scope This review is to examine the services, applications, architecture, system security, resources and associated information technology personnel throughout the University’s Laramie campus. Included in a general review are approximately 60 servers located in roughly 25 departments and approximately 80 servers located in the Division of Information Technology. Areas to be assessed include but are not limited to: 1. Security architecture and administration. __________________________________________________ 8 This document will be appended to the final contract
  9. 9. 2. System architecture and scalability. 3. Backup and recovery processes, plans and priorities. 4. Data integrity, protection and retention. 5. Domain services for both the employee and student domains. (There are roughly 30 UW domains that trust the two primary UWYO and UWSTUDENT domains.) 6. Duplication of services (DNS, email, DHCP, Web servers, database servers, file servers, print servers, SMS Servers, application servers.) 7. Consistency of database architectures where possible. 8. Departmental networking infrastructures including wireless. 9. Environmental: Machine Rooms, Air Conditioning, Wiring, UPS and Power Supplies, Redundant Network Connectivity. 10. Standardization of hardware purchases for better compatibility, and easier support and maintenance (desktop, server, printers, etc.). 11. End user software and hardware support (i.e. User Consultants). 12. Server Support and maintenance (i.e. Systems Programmers, Server Administrators, etc.). 13. Bulk purchasing of software. 14. Personnel resources and critical support personnel. 15. Environmental support systems such as HVAC, UPS and backup where equipment is housed. 16. Functional employee groups and other suitable areas for Citrix/Terminal Services applications including potential costs and cost savings, if any. Review Goals and Objectives This review is to assess the University’s information technology infrastructure as a whole and make recommendations to: 1. Ensure the protection and security of University data. 2. Minimize duplication of effort, services and resources. 3. Eliminate inefficient and costly redundancies. 4. Define what services, if any, should be restructured or eliminated. 5. Eliminate non-compatible standards and architectures. 6. Identify obstacles for departments wanting to move computing operations to the Division of Information Technology. 7. Recommend a strategy for evaluating the University-wide impacts of major information technology purchases including analysis of total cost of ownership. 8. Evaluate the complexity and risks of managing a complex distributed computing environment, including system security, exposure to data loss and virus protection. 9. Identify issues and trends in technology that may affect the University’s technology infrastructure and long-term architecture. 10. Recommend the most effective balance of central and distributed technology services, staffing and resources. Detail any logical alternatives. The recommendations should provide the University the background, advice and detailed recommendations: • To create a cost efficient blend of centralization and decentralization of information technology resources - properly aligning the University’s information technology infrastructure to best meet the needs of its teaching, research and outreach missions. • To create a coherent campus-wide information technology computing architecture and a solid foundation for the University’s information technology infrastructure. • On developing a long-term organizational process and structure to ensure the best utilization of the University’s information technology resources for the future. __________________________________________________ 9 This document will be appended to the final contract
  10. 10. • To estimate the costs of infrastructure and support, including personnel and training, in the current distributed environment and to estimate the same costs for the alternatives proposed. Interviews • Propose, in detail, three levels of departmental/program interview penetration and provide separate cost schedules for each alternative as a deliverable. The levels may range from phone or email interviews with a sampling of administrative departments and academic programs to on-site, in-person interviews. One proposal should include an on- site interview with a minimum of 20 administrative departments and academic programs where Information Technology provides the majority of computer services and to 100 percent of administrative departments and academic programs (approximately 25) that utilize a high level of non-centralized computing services. Interview methodology would differ from survey methodology in that, regardless of their level, interviews would offer the opportunity for discussion of responses at the time the interview is conducted. Alternately, explain why a different approach might be proposed for comprehensive data gathering. Surveys • Conduct a thorough, scientifically valid, survey representing accurate cross sectional needs of faculty, staff, and administrative users through questions related to the goals and objectives of this proposal. o Survey methodology, approach and questions must be approved by the University. Methodology may include both mail and online surveys in data gathering. The University can provide a web interface to administer the survey. The question set for the online survey is to be provided by the consultant. The consultant should specify whether the data repository would be installed on a UW server for the data to be collected and then sent to the consultant or if the consultant will provide the repository. Report • A report and executive summary addressing all Review Goals and Objectives and making recommendations for actions that will enable the University to achieve the Review Goals and Objectives. • Compilation of survey and interview responses and analysis of the results. • Distributed security assessment and general vulnerability analysis. • Cost-benefit analysis of centralized and decentralized options, with long-term risks articulated. Timeframe Responses to this RFP are due by December 1, 2003 at 2:00 p.m. Reponses should minimally include: 1. A range of costs for conducting the review as outlined. 2. A vendor skills and competencies description relative to this engagement. 3.
