In the midst of the summer slowdown is July, which kicks off a new fiscal year for most states. Though only 1,464 IT-related general government solicitations were captured in July – a 14.9 percent decrease from June – several represented highly anticipated procurements for FY 2014.

Below is a snapshot of July’s top 11 most common IT solicitations captured in the GovWin IQ state and local database:

Here is a look at current tracked general government IT opportunities:

The Philadelphia Department of Finance released a request for proposals (RFP) for an enterprise resource planning system and implementation services on July 29. The city is embarking on a significant initiative to modernize its administrative processes and related legacy technology systems that currently support business operations. Based on a prioritization of its needs, the city has made a decision to proceed with administrative modernization in a phased approach. The RFP is for phase one: Workforce Management. The city expects phases two and three will be high in future technology priorities.

The California Department of General Services (DGS) released an RFP on July 1, seeking a centralized revenue opportunity system (CROS). The CROS project's objectives are to replace legacy mainframe-based revenue and collection management systems with an integrated tax system that streamlines business processes, improves and expands online services to customers, and uses business intelligence to increase revenue opportunities. The RFP is being issued to address the limitations of the BOE’s existing legacy systems and to seek the procurement of a state-of-the-art information technology system that supports BOE’s mandated and statutory tax administration responsibilities. The RFP is a multi-step, competitively-bid procurement that includes conceptual, draft, and final proposal submission phases and sealed cost proposals.

The Idaho Department of Administration, Division of Purchasing, released an RFP on July 3 for a Web-based electronic procurement system. Deployment of the system will be statewide to all agencies/departments to meet individual program acquisition needs and budgetary constraints.
