New York City Emergency Management (NYCEM) invites submissions of Expression of Interest (EOI) to determine the feasibility of a vendor to host, maintain, and support a Crisis/Incident Management Platform (C/IMP) also known as an Incident Management System (IMS). This Request for Expression of Interest (RFEI) is intended to determine whether there is sufficient market interest to proceed to a competitive bidding process. In the event there is sufficient interest in this scope, NYCEM may, but is not obligated to, initiate a competitive bidding opportunity through a subsequent Request for Proposal (RFP) or authorized procurement method in accordance with the New York City Procurement Policy Board (PPB) Rules. Interested parties may voluntarily submit information as part of an EOI with the understanding that this RFEI is for information gathering purposes only; it is not an offer. No contractual relationship will be automatically generated between the respondent and NYCEM or the City of New York by responding to this request. Any cost information submitted by responders will be kept confidential and used solely for the purpose of market analysis.
Questions regarding the meaning or interpretation of this RFEI must be submitted via the “RFEI Questions and Answers” to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions must be submitted no later than 5 PM on February 28, 2017. Responses will be posted on the “Contracting Opportunities - page of the NYCEM website http://www1.nyc.gov/site/em/about/contracting-opportunities.page / ) page by March 6, 2017 with preference given to topics questioned most frequently.
Respondents are responsible for ensuring that NYCEM receives one (1) electronic version of the EOI on or before 4 PM on March 13, 2017. Proposals shall be e-mailed to email@example.com.
