Notice of Intent
This Notice is intended to inform the public about an upcoming procurement opportunity.
The University of Ottawa intends to acquire a new cloud based SAAS (Software as a service) bilingual (French and English) Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system in 2020 by using a two-step approach:
Step 1: The University will issue a Request for Supplier Qualification (RFSQ) to prequalify acceptable ERP software solutions. The University anticipates that it will issue the RFSQ in February 2020.
Step 2: The University will issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) seeking to procure software integration services to integrate one of the ERP software solutions pre-qualified at Step 1. The University may decide to award a contract to a supplier for the provision of both integration services and the pre-qualified ERP software solution (as an authorized reseller) OR award separate contracts to suppliers for the software integration services and for the purchase of the pre-qualified ERP software solution. The University anticipates that it will issue the RFP around May 2020.
The dates/timing for the issuance of the RFSQ and the RFP mentioned in this Notice are estimates only and are subject to change. The University reserves the right to adjust the above-mentioned approach as needed prior to releasing the documents. The RFSQ and RFP will be posted through MERX, the electronic tendering system used by the University.
All communications and any questions from suppliers about this opportunity must be directed in writing and must be addressed to:
Senior Procurement Officer
Suppliers must NOT contact or communicate with any other University of Ottawa employee regarding this project.
