  1. Delivery Specifications

Because of the dispersed nature of our organization, we feel it is not feasible to have formal on-site instruction in the applications.  

We would prefer, then, that training be made available in one (or more) of the following formats:

  • IBT (Internet Based Training) – viewing videos, conducting interactive assessments, etc. over the internet.
  • CBT (Computer Based Training) sending the courses out on media (like DVD or CD-ROM)
  • Webinar (Facilitator led IBT) – participating jointly with participants and a facilitator in real time over the Internet.
  • In all cases we would want the education organization to provide the LMS (learning management system) to track course enrollments, course completions, and learning assessments.

For reference, each consultant has the following minimum specifications on his or her laptop or desktop.

  • Local Broadband internet access (DSL, Cable, or Fiber)
  • Windows®  XP or Vista
  • Internet Explorer® 6.0 or newer, or Mozilla® Firefox® 2.0 or newer (JavaScript™ and Java™ enabled)
  • Pentium® class 1GHz CPU with 2 GB of RAM
  • Microphone and Speakers (USB headset)
  • SXGA+ (1400×1050 at 32-bit color)
  • DVD-R/W, with CD/ROM

  1. Required Project Deliverables

The following minimum deliverables should be included in your proposal:

  • Initial and revised Project Plans
  • Management Reporting on student progress and overall program success (weekly)
  • A weekly report of expenses including a budget to actual analysis.
  • Overall Needs analysis summary
  • Individualized course schedule (by participant)
  • Course materials for each class for each participant
  • LMS (Learning Management System) to track participant progress

Conclusion

  1. Non-Solicitation of resources

NDIT will not solicit to hire employees of the vendor during the project or for a period of 1 year after the end of the project.  We expect that the vendor will mutually agree not to do the same with our resources.  

  1. Relationship of Parties

The parties relationship is strictly business to business.  No agent, consultant, employee status will be created, and neither party will be authorized to commit the other or be liable for the actions of the other.

  1. Proprietary Information

NDIT considers all of its information to be proprietary and confidential and vendor must agree to keep such information confidential and not disclose NDIT’s information to any party excepting as required to do so by law.

  1. Publicity

Vendor may not release to the press any information regarding services performed as part of this project.

  1. Travel expenses

NDIT will be responsible for reasonable travel and entertainment expenses for the vendor in addition to professional services.  However, those expenses may not exceed 15% of the total project budget.


  1. Conclusion

Thank you for your interest in providing educational services to NDIT.  We are grateful for your time and attention to helping us meet our educational goals.  You have our commitment that your proposal will be fairly reviewed and kept in confidence.  Also, rest assured that our RFP will be conducted in a fair manner and you will know our decision in a timely fashion.
