Description and Specifications:
The Illinois State Police (ISP) has an emergency need to contract with Information Builders, Inc. (IBI) for FOCUS software system services.

The systems operating in this environment are critical to the process of paying employees, paying vendors, and providing accountability and management of the Department’s fiscal resources. These systems (twelve in total) are maintained by a single individual.

Key Information

Notice Type:Emergency Procurement

Notice Expiration Date:06/17/2015
Emergency Justification:Early in May the single individual responsible for maintaining these systems announced his retirement without advanced notice and left on that day. This placed the IBI/FOCUS systems without even minimal support. ISP does not have trained resources in this technology.
IBI/Focus is a platform not used by any other state agency. To ensure continuity of the FISCAL and administrative operations, it is necessary to acquire services. Due to the aged environment, Information Builders Inc. is the only company who has software engineers and consultants with the required skill set.
If ISP does not initiate this emergency procurement, there is great risk that the agency will not be able to pay its employees or its vendors.
Accordance with Admin Rule:Minimize serious disruption to critical state services that affect health, safety, or collection of substantial state revenues
