California Community Colleges Awards $15 Million Data Integration Contract
By TechWire News Staff
The California Community Colleges Technology Center (CCCTC) announced Jan. 12 that it intends to award a systemwide data integration services contract to Experis and Infiniti Consulting Group, two companies with offices located in the Sacramento area.
Under the contract, the partnering vendors will provide implementation services, post-implementation support and Master Data Management deployment, ultimately creating a data exchange framework for CCCTC’s technology initiatives, and allowing seamless communication between systemwide applications and local college student information systems. The project will support a series of online education and assessment grants the Chancellor’s Office awarded in 2013 mandating the deployment of certain applications, such as open source application OpenCCC and the online application for admissions, CCCApply.
The contract term for this procurement is two years, with three optional one-year extensions, with a maximum cost of $15 million, according to the projects request for proposals. CCCTC accepted responses to the RFP until Nov. 29.
Hosted by the Butte-Glenn Community College District, CCCTC manages specific technology initiatives administered by the California Community College Chancellor's Office for the system’s 113 accredited colleges. Butte College coordinates these initiatives via the CCC Technology Center Grant.
