The purpose of this Request for Information (“RFI”) is to allow all interested vendors an opportunity to present information on available products, solutions, and services that address the needs identified within this RFI. Generally, the Towns of Kill Devil Hills, Duck, Kitty Hawk, Nags Head, and Southern Shores (the “Towns”) are seeking information for the purpose of addressing varying Geographic Information System (“GIS”) needs of each of the individual Towns, which may include staff over multiple departments, as well as residents, property owners, and those doing business in the Towns.
The intent of this RFI is to elicit the advice and the best practice recommendations of knowledgeable persons in the vendor community, not to select a proposed solution or a vendor. Subsequently, and depending upon knowledge gained from the response to this RFI, the Towns may, in their sole discretion, prepare and issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) that will meet the requirements of its stakeholders. The collective information provided by vendors will be used to develop alternatives for consideration and to estimate costs related to acquisition of a proposed solution. Vendors may respond to this RFI with information about deploying a GIS solution using the latest best management practices and budgetary costs the Towns should expect to incur when procuring, implementing, and supporting such solutions.
