In March 2011, the City adopted the Final IT Sourcing Strategy Report (PDF) made during a presentation (PDF) to the full City Council. Subsequently, in April 2011, the City issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for IT Services, with proposals due in June 2011. Eight valid proposals were evaluated and rated, four finalist firms submitted their Best and Final Offer (BAFO) proposals in September 2011, and the City made selections to award contracts in November-December 2011.
