On February 24, 2004 we posted a number of files on this website as part of a "web-based briefing" for vendors. Our goal was to give you insight into the decennial census business architecture and our goals and objectives for the DRIS acquisition.
Three companies responded to our request for feedback on contract type, performance measures, small business opportunities, and incentive strategies. We appreciate your thoughts and are taking them into consideration as we prepare the request for proposal.
We received two questions and are publishing our responses here:
Question 1: "Can the Business Architecture source files be made available for use in the Popkin enterprise modeling suite?"
Answer 1: No.
Question 2: "In the 2010 Census Milestones for Planning and Testing, Acquisitions, Budget/OMB 300 and Architecture table, is the "Integrator Contractor" reference in the Acquisitions column, the contractor that is awarded the DRIS contract?" (sic)
Answer 2: Yes. We use the term "Integrator Contractor" to emphasize the importance of integrating these different self-response systems as part of the DRIS contract.
We look forward to more comments from you later this year when we release the draft RFP in late June and following our vendor conference on July 15, 2004.
Thank you again for your interest.
