Technology Solution Assessment – Intermediate, Multi-Step Process Multnomah County is gathering information and exploring Facilities Capital Planning and Project Management technology solutions with suppliers already providing solutions to the County procured either via prior competitive sourcing event or under a government cooperative agreement.   This is not an open,  competitive sourcing event and no determination will be made by rank or score but by the assessment of which solution that is available from existing suppliers, if any, best meet the County’s business and technical requirements.   Scores will be informational in nature to assist the County in making a decision.  Multnomah County IT Purchasing uses the MultcoMarketplace to track and store technology solution assessments as the County’s system of record. The five solutions under consideration are: Novulo's ServiceNow SmartSheet's Control Center IBM's Tririga Oracle's Primavera PMWeb As procurement authority already exists for the County to make a selection via existing agreements, the County may make its determination at any time in this process.  If this assessment does not identify a solution that meets the County’s needs, other suppliers with existing cooperative agreements in place for government jurisdictions may be considered, or an open, competitive sourcing event may be released to expand the field of suppliers.
