U–Development of clinical training viedo VA24112Q1195 091412 Janica Francis Contract Specialist The purpose of this modification to the previous solicitation notice is to publish the answers to questions received concerning this. All other terms and conditions remain the same.
1. How many days of shooting does the VA anticipate? We are relying on the vendor to determine this.
2. Since the number of days shooting is a function of the number of vignettes or case studies, could you provide an estimate of the number of vignettes for the 60-minute video? 3
3. How many different locations will be used in the shoots–just the Boston VA facilities, or other locations as well? Filming will not necessarily be on site at the Boston VA (Language in the RFQ: It is possible thatfilming may be done on-site at the Boston VA, particularly if “real” experts are included, but if it meets the needs of the project, filming at a contractor’s location may be preferable. ) For the purposes of the training, there will not be any particular need to have multiple sites be visible/be a part of the video.
4. Does the VA expect the proposed simple, complex, and very sophisticated versions of the video
to reflect different numbers of days shooting, different levels of quality, or both? No
5. Does the VA require or expect a certain number of crew members on the shoots? No
6. Approximately how many actors does the VA believe will be needed for the video? Will VA
personnel other than “experts” be available to be used as participants/actors?
Part of the contract is to help us operationalize the content into a script – that involves planning whether to use case vignettes, panel discussions, etc. Only experts will be available; the vendor will be responsible for all other actors.
7. Will the video be expected to be shown in its entirety at one viewing, or should it be divided into
3 or 4 segments for convenience of viewing by VA personnel? Either is fine.
8. Will the 60-minute video be a stand-alone training program, or will it be used as part of a
blended training session (face-to-face with supplementary material from the video)? Designed to be stand-alone.
9. If filming occurs at the Boston VA facility, is there a filming studio on-site with lighting, green
screen, etc.? There is no filming studio on site.
10. Should we assume that a narrator will be needed to make training points explicit and to tie the case studies together? Yes, this will be part of turning the content into a script.
11. Our assumption is that the video should be captioned–is that correct? Yes
12. Is this a new requirement, and if not, is there an incumbent? This is a new project.
13. What is the relationship of this procurement with the previous VA241-12-Q-0617, Online Training for Medical Providers on Women Veterans and Trauma? No relationship
14. We understand that if “real” experts are required to be used the VA will provide access to them. Would we also need to price in their time/services? If so what base rate (fee for their services) should we use? Or are these military/government experts? No need to pay the experts.
15. What is the level of education and experience with MST of the target audience (mental health clinicians)? They’ll be mental health clinicians; we expect they’ll have a base level of knowledge related to MST but we hope this video will help them take it to the next level – covering issues related to case conceptualization, themes that come up in treatment, ways in which the experience of MST is different from other traumas, etc

No other information is available at this time. To: IT Steering CommitteeCC: Rebecca Hodgson, Assistant to the City ManagerFrom: Jim Considine, IT DirectorDate: 8-16-2012Re: I.T. Recommendation for Final Unified Communication Vendor We recommend that the City of Aspen select VanRan and Avaya and proceed to contract negotiations. This recommendation is supported by the following scores, Staff discussion, and reference feedback:1. RFP Scores ? The RFP?s were read and scored by four City/County Staff. VanRan-Avaya scored number one in this process. Although the raw scores rated VanRan-Avaya first, the scores were close with the lower score coming in at 97.6% of the high score.

Weighted RFP Scores ? Subsequent to the presentation to the IT Steering Committee, weights were added to the categories by one Steering Committee Member and the IT Director. Again VanRan-Avaya scored the highest under both weighting scenarios.

Best and Final Proposals ? Requests were sent to each proposer to specify consistent equipment, increase complement of Customers, and issue best and final offer.Assured that we had proposals that were consistent, we were still left with a significant difference in costs. No member of IT Staff was able to offer any argument that quantified Cisco advantages to justify spending significantly more.The decision was made to check references in order to validate our preference for the lower cost solution offered by VanRan-Avaya.5. References ? IT Staff contacted 4 references ? three supported by VanRan and the Aspen Ski Co. (whom we knew used Avaya).The references gave us:a. Very high marks for the telephony features provided by Avaya,b. Very high marks for the implementation services and support provided by VanRan,c. Limited feedback on the UC features proposed by VanRan due to limited implementation. One reference used the mobility features and was very satisfied with the results.d. Not a single hint of dis-satisfaction with the Avaya system or VanRan performance. 6. Final Recommendation ? All City and County participants were unanimous in recommending that we announce VanRan/Avaya as our selection and proceed to contract negotiations.Download related documentation associated with this bidAttached Files:2012-052 Unified Communication Phone System RFP Documents.pdfWednesday, September 12, 2012Addendum #1 Issued 5-17-12.docxWednesday, September 12, 2012Attachment A – Detail RFP Questions.pdfWednesday, September 12, 2012Attachment B – Summary Costs.pdfWednesday, September 12, 2012Attachment C – Network Diagram.pdfWednesday, September 12, 2012Attachment D – COAPC Facilities Map.pdfWednesday, September 12, 2012Questions from Potential Offerors on the Unified Communications System project.docxWednesday, September 12, 2012If the above files do not open correctly, you may need to download the latest version of Acrobat Reader. return to bid listing For more information about this opportunity please contact the buyer directly.
