Consulting RFP Bidder Information

Sat, Feb 3, 2007.  LouHIE is seeking a consulting group to develop a business plan reflecting our community's goal to develop a community-wide consumer-driven health record bank. 

To explore this opportunity, you can do this following:  

1.  Review the RFP plus supporting materials (below).

2.  Attend a consultant teleconference this Tuesday 2-6-07 or Wednesday 2-7-07.

3.  Register in the LouHIE Consultant RFP Bidders space.  This will allow us to communicate with all bidders through our collaboration system.  Note:  each individual wishing to receive notifications will need to register separately. If you received an e-mail with the pre-register invite, you can use the key at the bottom of the e-mail to facilitate the process.  Click here to register.

4.  Send a letter of interest (due 2-12-07 via e-mail).  Please provide in your letter:

  • Your team's interest, availability and qualifications as a prime contractor.  In your letter you should also describe any current relationships which could represent a conflict of interest, and how you will manage the conflict to maintain objectivity.  An example of a conflict would be involvement with a potential sub-contractor or supplier of e-health or health record banking services or technologies to LouHIE. 
  • Your interest in being considered as a sub-contractor on another team's proposal.  Qualified experts living in the Louisville area, or with prior experience working with LouHIE, are encouraged to offer themselves as sub-contractors.  Expression of interest in sub-contracting will not effect LouHIE's consideration of you as a prime contractor.  Names of potential sub-contractors will be shared on 2-13-07 with prime-contractors who LouHIE invites to submit a full proposal.
