Integris Applied announced that it has been awarded a two-year DBITS (deliverables based IT services) contract by the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR).
DBITS is a ‘cooperative contracting approach’ that allows cross jurisdictional purchasing opportunities. DIR’s DBITS model allows government entities from across the country to purchase items from DIR-contracted vendors. Customers can customize their Statement of Work according to the level of complexity of the project and request responses from DBITS contracted suppliers. This DBITS approach streamlines government purchasing opportunities and allows potential buyers the opportunity to access a market of services that might otherwise require lengthy procurement processes.
Les Druitt, Integris Applied CEO said, “We are excited to offer to our clients a streamlined approach to engaging with us. We would like to thank the Texas Department of Information Resources for the opportunity to participate in this platform.”
Under the terms of the contract, Integris Applied can provide IT Procurement Assistance services focused on requirements gathering, RFP development, scoring criteria identification, vendor evaluation and statement of work development and negotiation. Les Druitt continues, “Integris Applied has decades of experience assisting states with the services offered in the DBITS purchasing vehicle. We look forward to sharing our insights through DBITS.”
