General Description of Requirement
The City of Vancouver (the “City”) is seeking expressions of interest (“Expressions of Interest”) from vendors with expertise in providing an open data platform.
The purpose of this RFEOI is for the City to obtain information on the functionality and suitability of a demonstrated off-the-shelf solution. The demonstrated off-the-shelf solution should, without major enhancements and/or customizations, meet most of the City’s requirements. In responding to this RFEOI, therefore, vendors should describe not only how closely their recommended out-of-the-box solution will meet the City’s requirements, but also what enhancements and/or customizations, if any, would be necessary to adapt their recommended solution to fully meet the City’s requirements. The recommended solution should be inclusive of software, hardware, and related services.
