The procurement process of administrative technology systems is often filled with pitfalls and unique challenges. ESP is experienced and skilled at addressing these challenges, and we adhere to a procurement methodology based on successes in prior engagements and best practice.
ESP’s process involves a wide range of stakeholders in conducting a needs analysis, development of more than 1,000 specific requirements (for typical administrative systems), management of the Request for Proposal process, and ultimately, scripted vendor demonstrations to ensure the best match to your requirements.
Whether your school or district is purchasing a new Student Information System (SIS), an Instructional Improvement System (IIS), a Learning Management System, Transportation Software, or virtually any other administrative system or software, ESP will help guide you through the process in 3 distinct phases.
Phase I: Needs Analysis & RFP Development
Phase II: Vendor Selection Process
Phase III: Implementation Services
