Over the past several months, NASPO ValuePoint has conducted extensive market research and analysis on the technical considerations of how e-marketplace portals function and the capabilities to customize potential usage by our participating members and other eligible entities. Supply chain risks, precautions necessary to protect against cybersecurity threats, security of data, and a whole host of others important aspects of this project are being studied.
To understand the full breadth and dimensions of e-marketplace platforms more fully, and gain an industry wide perspective, NASPO ValuePoint is issuing this Request for Information (“RFI”) seeking information from e-marketplace platform providers. This RFI seeks input on e-marketplace platform solutions that offer a modern electronic commerce buying experience similar to those currently used in the commercial environment.
This procurement platform should connect public buyers online to a virtual marketplace that sells either an e-marketplace provider’s products and/or third-party vendor products. Online e-marketplace platforms should feature multiple suppliers offering the same product and allow government buyers to decide which supplier / product combination best meets their needs.
The responses to this RFI may help in the development of future competitive solicitations(s).
NOTE: This is an informal Request for Information (RFI). No award will be made from the response to this RFI. Respondents do NOT need to provide an answer to all questions.
