The Oregon Department of Transportation intends to enter into a contract with Rieker, Inc. of Aston Township, PA The purpose of the contract is for a software license maintenance renewal for the continuation of services of a product that was originally Sole-Sourced two years ago. ODOT procured the Curve Advisory Reporting System (CARS) developed by Rieker, to collect data for the evaluation of curve advisory speeds around the state. We are seeking a three year renewal for the maintenance and support at a cost of $171,000.00. The contract is expected to begin on 7/1/2017. ODOT is renewing its CARS subscription for a three-year term. At the end of the contemplated renewal, ODOT may elect to renew its CARS subscription for additional terms, up to three years (maximum if 6 years), without providing an additional sole-source public notice. Any affected person can submit a protest for this sole-source determination. Protests are due to Eric Spond, OPBC in writing at no later than 4/15/2018 2:00 PM Your protest must be in writing (email acceptable) and include the following: 1. A detailed statement of the legal and factual grounds for the protest. 2. A description of the resulting harm to you. 3. The relief requested.
