DEPARTMENT OF WORKFORCE SERVICES, EMPLOYMENT SERVICES DIVISION ATTACHMENT B Contains very detailed Requirements relating to System Standards, State of Wyoming Standards, OCIO, ITPC, ITCC Policies, Governance model and other regulatory compliance . The Specifications/Requirements Document (Attachment B) of this Request for Proposal can be found at http://wyomingworkforce.org/newsroom/doc/ES-MIS-RFP.doc *********************************************************************** 0253-M DEPT. OF ADMINISTRATION & INFORMATION, INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY DIVISION, MAINFRAME AND DASD UPGRADE EQUIPMENT STANDARD of Performance and Reliability All equipment will be subject to the standard of performance stated below. Final terms and conditions of this standard may be negotiated with the successful Proposer. The State of Wyoming proposes the following: A. Equipment shall not be accepted and payment shall not be made until the standard of performance is met. The date of acceptance should be the first day after the successful completion of the performance period (30 day period). B. The performance period shall begin on the installation date and shall end when the equipment has met the standard of performance for the period of thirty (30) consecutive days by operating in conformance with the contractor’s proposal at an effectiveness level of 95% or more. 11
  12. 12. C. In the event the equipment does not meet the standard of performance during the initial thirty (30) consecutive days, the standard of performance test should continue on a day-to-day basis until the standard of performance is met for a total of thirty (30) consecutive days. D. If the equipment fails to meet the standard of performance after ninety (90) calendar days from the installation date, the State may, at its option, request a replacement, or terminate the order, and collect on the Performance Bond, if applicable. The effectiveness level for a system is computed by dividing the operational use-time by the sum of that time plus system failure down time. Operational use-time for performance testing for a system is defined as the accumulated time during which the critical components are not down when scheduled for operation. The system failure downtime is that period of time when the system is inoperable due to equipment failure and productive work being utilized for acceptance testing cannot be conducted. E. Downtime for each incident shall start from the time the state contacts the contractor’s designated representative until the equipment is returned to proper operating condition. F. For a twelve month period beginning at the end of successful thirty (30) day performance period, the expected number of service calls per month (as stated in the Proposer’s response) must not be exceeded by more than (100%) one hundred percent in any calendar month. More than (100%) one-hundred percent increase over the proposed number of expected service calls involving downtime in a month will constitute a failure of the Equipment Standard of Performance and Reliability. G. The State shall maintain daily records to satisfy the requirements of standard of performance, reliability and acceptance of equipment. H. The Equipment Standard of Performance and Reliability will be included in the contract between the State and selected Proposer. 12
