CPB is seeking proposals from vendors to create a customized grants management system to address all aspects of grants management from grant inception, grant award, and post award. The new system is to be built using Microsoft Dynamics CRM and provided as a "turn-key" work-for-hire solution, supported by CPB in-house Information Technology Department. The system must be easily managed and scalable and designed to integrate with CPBs existing investments in Microsoft Dynamics GP and Microsoft SharePoint.
In addition to the enclosed details regarding CPB and the services it seeks, a pre-bidders conference has been scheduled for November 21, 2013, to address any questions vendor may have in drafting a response. CPB will demonstrate the current systems and any digital process relating to the Grants Management process. Attendance at this conference will be online through Webex.
Interested parties are encouraged to submit written pre-bidders conference questions with their attendance information to Stephen Wolfe, Vice President of IT, at: email@example.com no later than November 15, 2013. The session will include an open question and answer time allotment. Specific conference instructions will be distributed prior to the meeting. The format for the information session will be a brief introductory presentation followed by an open forum for questions from attendees.
