IESO Request for Proposal – Unified Communication

This RFP is an invitation by the IESO to prospective Respondents to submit proposals for the provision of consulting services for a unified communications solutions review.  This review and assessment will help the IESO determine the approach and road map to implement appropriate unified communication solutions.

With the organization spread across different physical locations and needing to collaborate with outside stakeholders the ability to connect individuals together via different mediums is essential to ensure effective business operations. 

The use of unified communications solutions is imperative to provide the IESO with the ability to manage clear and concise communication technologies across all locations including the ability to enable any external parties to participate remotely (listen, view and/or speak) in discussions at all IESO locations.  The Contractor will be required to document the current state and key business requirements for the IESO, conduct a fit gap and system analysis, recommend a set of ideal unified communications solutions that best meets the needs of the organization, develop a comprehensive roadmap and provide requirements for inclusion in the appropriate IESO procurement mechanism (e.g. – RFP, RFQ, etc.).
