Procurement Overview

CMES solicitations are being conducted through either an Invitation to Negotiate (ITN) or Request for Proposal (RFP) process. The new ITN process allows each solicitation to separate system and operational modules, which can then be awarded to different vendors, based on the best technology/solutions available to meet HCPF needs. The ITN process allows for more flexibility in selecting the best services and vendor(s) for each CMES component.
