DNR SOLE SOURCE CONTRACTS

Current Sole-Source Contracts by DNR

public safety software
The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) contemplates awarding a sole source contract to CODY Systems (Pennsylvania) to provide software licenses for DNR officers to run public safety software while in the field.  This system was selected because it is used by Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife which allows officers to standardize and share resources.

The contract will be issued on or before June 30, 2015 for licenses plus an annual fee. The initial dollar value is estimated at $45,000.00.

Offerors contemplating the above requirements are required to submit capability statements detailing their ability to meet the state’s requirements by June 19, 2015.  The following information should be included in the capability statements: explain how your public safety software offers real-time field access to databases, and is compatible with the CODY software and servers already installed in the Natural Resources Building in Olympia, Washington.

In the absence of other qualified sources, it is the state’s intent to make a sole source award of the contract.

Contract to Develop or Customize Forest Metrix App for iOS
The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) contemplates awarding a sole source contract to Field Truth, Inc for development / customization of Forest Metrix (a mobile forest inventory data collection and analysis application for iOS).

DNR is seeking the construction of a young stand data inventory collection software application to run on currently supported mobile platforms/devices (e.g. - iOS or Android). Applicants will be considered qualified only if they have a current production software geared towards forest inventory and/or are in the business of supplying mobile software support services to the forest industry.

The software application must function in an offline environment (non-cellular) while taking advantage of location services, on-board email, and camera capabilities of the device. Data must be collected utilizing industry standard database formats that can be easily incorporated into existing DNR inventory database systems. The application must provide real-time decision support tools (e.g. - data analysis) such as calculations, charting, etc. The solution must not have a web-based data hosting/storage function whereby DNR does not exclusively own/host any or all data collected. Additionally, continued use of solution must not be dependent upon recurring subscription-based funding models.

The contract or purchase order will be issued on or about March 31, 2015.

Vendors contemplating the above requirements are required to submit capability statements detailing their ability to meet the State’s requirements within five (5) calendar days of this announcement. In the absence of other qualified sources, it is the State’s intent to make a sole source award of the contract.
