The Illinois Department of Central Management Services will issue a request for proposal (RFP) for a comprehensive design and progressive implementation of a statewide permitting, licensing and registration solution. Statewide consolidation of license/permit management is a strategic initiative. One of the key objectives of Governor Rauner is “One-Stop” for businesses and citizens that includes bringing online services into a single portal, with unified licensing as a major component. Currently there are more than 50 license and permit applications across agencies, with many ancillary systems and spreadsheets. The project will replace these over time with a standard enterprise solution featuring an underlying common foundation with a single payment engine, single customer account, common digital identity and authentication method, reusable components, and supporting technology. The State is open to flexible funding approaches including self-funding, and is also open to hosted/cloud solution as well as managed services. Over the duration of the master contract, multiple SOWs are expected to be executed focusing on phased implementation, along with requirements gathering, design & blueprint, process optimization, architecture services.
