General Description of Requirement

The City of Vancouver, for itself and the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation, the Vancouver Police Board and the Vancouver Public Library Board (collectively, the “City”), seeks from qualified Proponents, in particular, from qualified “value-added resellers” (“VARs”), written proposals (“Proposals”) for the supply of certain computer hardware and software and related services as described in this Request for Proposals (the “RFP”). Those goods and services are categorized in the RFP as follows:

1. Category 1 - Client hardware and services (“Category 1”); and
2. Category 2 - Enterprise software and services (“Category 2”).

Please refer to the graphic on the RFP document; a simple visual that outlines which products and services are in scope for this RFP.

The City recognizes that some prospective Proponents may wish to submit Proposals for both categories and some may wish to submit Proposals for only one. Therefore, in the circumstances, the City will consider Proposals that by themselves include both categories and it will consider Proposals that include only one or the other of the two categories.

The City is seeking Proposals that, in totality, will meet all the requirements described in the RFP, but it will consider innovative and/or novel approaches.
