Future Vision Task Force Work Continues
Request for Information Process Has Begun
The AgGateway Future Collaboration Platform Request for Information (RFI) document is now available for interested vendors. The review and submission process is open to any interested organization regardless of AgGateway membership status. Communication has been sent to the Allied Providers Council soliciting submissions from members. We also encourage our members in other councils who may work with vendors not represented in AgGateway today to inform them of this opportunity. All requests for copies of the RFI should be directed to Brent Kemp at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The RFI period is open from March 17 - April 17, 2015. We recognize that this is a very narrow window of availability, but we believe time is of the essence in order to meet our timeline for presentation to AgGateway leadership and to proceed with an RFP process. The submission requirements, confidentiality provisions, and other details are included in the RFI document itself.
The Future Vision Task Force requirements set is still available as a living document in the AgGateway Wiki. Those members with interest in the work performed to date, and who would care to comment on the identified requirements may request wiki access, and user ID’s if applicable, from Member Services at Member.Services@aggateway.org.
Although the official comment period for the requirement set is closed, we continue to accept comments and input from members. The Future Vision Task Force work began over three years ago, and we’ve identified areas where technology and practice has diverged from where it had been during those initial discussions. It is anticipated that there will be more modifications as the RFI/RFP process progresses, so please continue to review and comment.
