11. Q. In Proposer Staffing (Pg 30) in RFP document, you mentioned "resumes of key personnel". For that, do we need to provide Sample (Representative) or live resumes?
A. Per E.7.1 on page 30, provide the actual resumes of the key personnel including education, areas of expertise, professional certifications, and other projects on which they have worked and their roles in those projects.
12. Q. What is the Place of Performance (Onsite/Offsite)?
A. Please refer to question three below of the questions dated October 10.
13. Q. Is this Multiple or Single Award?
A. The County will accept and review proposals for any one or more of the systems in the Introduction of the RFP on page 1. In the event that certain Proposers meet the needs of some systems but not all systems, the County reserves the right to divide this scope into discrete contracts with multiple vendors, or to award a contract for less than the full scope outlined in this RFP in order to best meet the needs of the Justice Partners.
14. Q. Do you prequalify the Vendor's list?
A. A prequalification of vendors was not completed for this specific procurement.
15. Q. What are the Work hours for the proposed staff? (24*7*365, Day shift and so on...)
A. The standard work hours for this implementation is unknown at this time. This will depend on the solutions selected, implementation plan and the desires of each justice partner. However, the business hours of the Circuit Court and its justice partners generally are 8:00 am - 5:00 pm Monday to Friday.
16. Q. Is performance bond required?
17. Q. What is the term of the Contract?
A. The County will consider the term of contract offered by the Proposer. The County intends to implement and use the ICMS for the foreseeable future.
18. Q. What is the Start date of the project?
A. Responses are due January 4, at which point we will enter the four-phase RFP Evaluation Process. Lake County anticipates the award to be approved at the May 8, 2018 County Board Meeting if the process moves forward as planned.

- The Integrated Case Management System project plan will be prepared in consultation with the justice entities and County IT. Also, please refer to RFP Section E.7.2 Lake County Staffing which identifies the kinds of staff resources available during implementation.
- Q. Does the Department anticipate any professional or consulting services may be needed through separate procurements to accomplish this effort? (i.e. project planning/oversight, PM, QA, IV&V, staff augmentation, implementation services etc.)? If so, what services does the Department desire and how do they anticipate to procure?
- Please refer to RFP Section E.7.2 Lake County Staffing which identifies the kinds of staff resources available during implementation. Lake County’s expectation is that the successful vendor will have a full complement of dedicated project staff, including a project manager, for the duration of the implementation. The need for auxiliary professional/consulting services will be dependent on the solution (s) selected and the internal resources available at the time of implementation. If necessary, there will be separate procurement activities completed.
