The Office of Information Technology (OIT) is working with Procurement to release a new solicitation for Consulting and Technical Services (CATS) 2.0. This contract will be basically the same as the current CATS contract, including the Functional Areas. Our aim is to make responding to this new solicitation, a good deal less involved than the original RFP, in fact we are exploring the possibility of making this new solicitation an RFQ. At this point in time we do not have a release date but, once a date has been set, we will be notifying our current Master Contractors, publicizing it on the County webpage and through numerous outlets.
