03/05/10                   ITQ # BD80200S102 On-Going Support Response                                  Page 4
Professional / Technical Personnel Questionnaire
1. How do you intend to provide the resources required by this ITQ?

 Octagon Information Services, Inc. currently has 44 employees on staff as well as an extensive resume base.
We have an excellent recruitment system. We also have a commission system in place for employees who
recommend candidates to us. It has proven to be a valuable tool in acquiring new personnel because it is an
ongoing commission rather than a one-time bonus. Top candidates are recommended since our employees know
that they have to go through the Octagon interview process before they become an employee of Octagon.

2. Identify the SP contract administrator and describe the functions that person will perform.

Octagon Information Services, Inc will utilize two administrators:
                                                                        rd
         Tom Tillberg, COO, is in the home office located at 326 West 3 Street, Suite 706, Davenport, IA 52801.
Tom will handle all invoicing payments questions and concerns as well as any insurance requirements or needs.
He will also handle any other document needs as well as any reporting requirements.
                                                                           th
         Dan Swesey, Marketing Manager, is in the branch office at 1228 8 Street, West Des Moines, IA 50265.
Dan will handle all recruitment needs, employee / team issues as well as any on site requirements.

3. Describe how you plan on providing additional personnel if it becomes necessary to properly staff projects.

In addition to the methods described in question 1 Octagon has a online recruitment system. We also work with
sub-contracting firms when the need arises however their candidates are subjected to the same interview process
that Octagon’s employees go through.

4. Describe your company's ability to uniquely address problems and issues related to the service category.
Octagon works closely with the client to insure that no problems develop. The Marketing Manager checks with the
client bi-weekly to make sure the consultants are performing to the best of their ability. Octagon has an open door
policy and we encourage our employees to contact their supervisor or Octagon if they for see any problems. In
addition the consultant turns in a bi-weekly Status Sheet that the client’s representative signs.

5. Describe your company's practices in adopting client policies and methods.

Octagon’s project approach is unique, based upon individual project criteria and the Client’s methodology.
Octagon provides quality deliverables decided upon by both the client and Octagon. We pride ourselves on project
completion and meeting deadlines, as well as, being under budget. Our communication methods include a bi-
weekly status update, monthly management meeting, and day-to-day involvement with your staff.


6. List each type / brand of operating system/ communication system you are experienced with in each category
   below and make comments.

           In addition to the answers below we have provide ATTACHMENT 1 – CONSULTANT EXPERIENCE is a
           spreadsheet showing the diversified talent of Octagon’s current staff and ATTACHMENT – TWO –
           OCTAGON SKILL SETS which lists all hardware, software and the range of positions that Octagon is
           capable of filling.

           a)   Mainframes: The essential characteristics of a mainframe are: rapid and continuing evolution,
                general-purpose orientation, hardware implemented solutions, and the criticality of user input to all
                of these processes. Octagon has a strong employee base of mainframe programmers with a wide
                variety of skill sets. In addition, through participation in numerous Acquisitions & Merger projects,
                the Octagon staff has created a process for managing data mergers and conversions that has met
                with great success.

                          TPF

           b)   Midrange / Minicomputer: The midrange / minicomputer is becoming the mainframe of the future.
                As we move forward there is realization that the power and the centralization were a prime asset.
                This hardware is being built to handle anything that the mainframe can.

           c)   Client / Server / Distributed Systems: The tools, languages, and software in this category and the
                next 3 categories can be links between each area and are necessary to achieve an end result and
                to determine which area a item belongs in can be hazy.


           SQL Server                                XML                                        Visual Interdev
           UNIX                                      UML                                        Actuate Reports
           Windows NT                                COM                                        O.O.D.
           Siebel Systems                            Exchange Server                            PVCS
           Sapphire Systems MS                       FaxBack System                             Micro strategy

           d)   Desktop: It generally can go with out saying that the majority of computer programmers are quite
                literate in the use of all desktop applications due to the use of computers not only in the office but at
                home as well.

           e)   LAN: The category takes a special kind of consultant. One who is in to the nuts and bolts aspect of
                the business. They sometimes tend to be antisocial however Octagon makes a policy of only hiring
                consultants who have the necessary people skills to operate in today’s environment. I also think
                that it goes without saying that these people are skilled in all of the necessary skills, including the
                hardwiring, to build both LANs and Wans.

            f)    Languages and DBMS: These are too numerous to list here. The majority of Databases are now
                  relational to deal with the client/server/web environments however the legacy systems still exist.
                  Octagon’s has a large percentage of consultants that not only have client / server / web skills they
                  also have a mainframe background which gives them a solid structured base to work from.

                 There are those who passionately believe that one methodology or one tool alone can do all the
                 database design one needs. For example, some system designers with excellent technical
                 educations have been trained in nothing but entity-relationship analysis. Some systems analysts
                 use data flow analysis techniques heavily and let other people worry about data structures.
                 Others swear by object-oriented design techniques. Some even would argue that it is unfair to
                 call entity-relationship modeling "data-structure" analysis, since they reserve that term
                 exclusively for techniques developed by industry researchers such as Charles Bachman.
                 Octagon is interested in leveraging a useful set of design techniques to integrate knowledge
                 about organizational activities, information processing, and data structures in order to design
                 business processes that achieve strategically important goals. There are five major approaches
                 to data structures and data flows database management systems: file-oriented, hierarchical,
                 network, relational, and object-oriented database designs. Octagon consultants are seasoned
                 in all of these techniques and we work with the Client on the best choice for their needs.
