  • Custom programming in Envision using Colleague Studio

  • System Administration services for an HPUX/Unidata implementation of Datatel Colleague

  • Implementation and development of components associated with the Datatel Sharepoint portal

The services required will primarily be Datatel developers; however, additional services may include the following:

The College is seeking such services from qualified staffing or “head hunting” firms only.
The College anticipates award as a result of this RFP to a pre-qualified pool of firms beginning March 2010. At its discretion, the College will solicit proposals from one or more firms in the pre-qualified pool as needed. The College will provide an overview of the services needed and anticipated duration. These firms will provide the qualifications and availability of the proposed personnel, and a proposed rate for the specific person consistent with the rates identified in your response to this RFP for the project. Selection of firms solicited and selected for future projects will be at the College’s discretion based on considerations such as the proposals submitted in response to this RFP and related scores and:

  • skills available when project is announced,

  • cost per hour or fee, and

  • prior experience and satisfaction of prior customers initially, and after the first assignment, HCC satisfaction with contractor’s service


Location of Work

Selected personnel may work remotely or locally as required by the level of interaction with the project stake-holders. If personnel works remotely, they will be required to spend the first week of the project on-site and then schedule one week per month during the project to work on-site. Travel costs will be covered by HCC in accordance with FS. Chapter 112.


Remote Access to HCC Resources

HCC will also provide a College-owned laptop for the personnel’s use exclusively on the project. The laptop will be returned at the end of the project. It is expected that the personnel will provide their own telephone service for voice communications and broadband access at no cost to HCC.


Application for HCC Open Positions

Any personnel may apply for open full-time HCC positions at any time. If the personnel has been or is associated with a prior project lasting 4 months or longer, there will be no ‘finders fee’ or additional costs to HCC if the individual is selected for the position. Prior to 4 months, a negotiated fee can be applied.
