                                          Section #1: General Information
Requirements that include the word "must" or "shall” describe a mandatory requirement. All specifications are defined as
mandatory minimum requirements unless otherwise stated. If no proposer is able to comply with a given specification or
mandatory requirement, Purchasing reserves the right to delete that specification or mandatory requirement. FAILURE TO
MEET A MANDATORY REQUIREMENT MAY DISQUALIFY YOUR PROPOSAL. This Proposal document and the awarded
proposer’s (Contractor’s) response information shall become the Contract.

1.1    Purpose
       The University of Wisconsin-Madison, hereinafter referred to as the “University”, through its Purchasing Services
       Department, hereinafter referred to as “Purchasing”, is requesting proposals for the University Health Services
       hereinafter referred to as “Department”, for the purchase of an Electronic Medical Records Software System.

       The University does not guarantee to purchase any specific quantity or dollar amount. Proposals that
       require purchase of a specific quantity or dollar value shall be disqualified.

       University Health Service (UHS) currently uses a “hybrid” clinical information system, using vendor-provided software
       first acquired in 1998 to support scheduling, eligibility determination, patient demographics, reporting, and very limited
       charting of patient data. All other health records (both medical and mental health) remain essentially in a paper-
       based system for charting documentation on patients. The purpose of this RFP is to identify a vendor solution to
       provide an enterprise wide electronic health record system for University Health Services. The new product will
       interface with existing external ancillary systems, such as the laboratory system, the pharmacy system,
       dictation/transcription systems, as well as any others identified in the RFP. The new EMR system must interface with
       any future system that is HL7 and XML compliant. UHS desires a proven application for a health care organization
       and primary care clinic, as well as a flexible product to meet various needs for clinical documentation for UHS.
1.2    Organization of this Solicitation Document

                             Section #5: Evaluation and Award of Contract(s)

5.1   Proposal Scoring
      Proposals meeting mandatory requirements will be reviewed by an evaluation committee and scored against the
      stated criteria. The committee may, at its sole discretion, review references, request oral presentations, and conduct
      an on-site visit and use the results in scoring the proposals. Proposals from certified Minority Business Enterprises
      may have points weighted by a factor of 1.00 to 1.05 to provide up to a five percent (5%) preference to these
      businesses. The evaluation committee's scoring will be tabulated and proposals ranked based on the numerical
      scores calculated.

5.2   Scoring Criteria and Method
      For each response required of the Proposer in Section #4, the points provided in parentheses represents the total
      possible points available for each response. The responses will be evaluated based on the relative merits to the
      needs of the State of Wisconsin (rather than relative to competing Proposer’s responses). The proposals will be
      scored and ranked independently by each committee member and the resulting scores will be averaged to determine
      the highest scoring proposal.

              Pricing
      5.2.1   The lowest priced proposal will receive 100% of the allotted cost points. All other proposals will be scored
              using the formula as follows:

               Lowest Proposed Cost
                       (constant) __      X        Maximum evaluation points given to cost             = SCORE
               Other Proposer's Cost
               (varies according to proposal being scored)

              Calculation of points awarded to subsequent proposals will use the lowest dollar proposal amount as a
              constant numerator and the dollar amount of the firm being scored as the denominator. This result will
              always be less than one. The result is then multiplied by the number of points given to the cost section of the
              RFP.

      5.2.2   For all other non-pricing related responses, points will be awarded relative to the needs of the State of
              Wisconsin, as solely determined by the evaluation committee members.

5.3   Best and Final Offers
      At the sole discretion of the University, the highest scoring proposer or proposers may be requested to submit best
      and final offers. If best and final offers are requested, they will be evaluated against the stated criteria, scored and
      ranked. There is no obligation on the part of the University to request best and final offers.

5.4   Contract Award
      The contract will be awarded to the highest scoring proposer providing contract negotiations are successful.

5.5   Notification of Award
      All proposers who respond to this RFP will be notified in writing of the University's award of contract(s) as a result of
      this RFP. After notification by Purchasing of the notice of award, file copies of proposals will be available for public
      inspection. Proposers must schedule document inspection with the Contract Administrator responsible for managing
      this RFP.

Failure to complete this form as a component of your proposal may result in rejection of your proposal.

1. Our company is a Wisconsin certified MBE.                                                 _____ Yes    _____No

2. Our company is a minority business but has not yet received Wisconsin certification
  (please provide details).                                                                  _____ Yes    _____No

3. We are aware of the University’s goal to spend 5% of their total purchasing dollars
   with certified MBE firms.                                                                 _____ Yes    _____No

________________________________________________________________________________________
________________________________________________________________________________________
________________________________________________________________________________________

In addition to direct subcontracting efforts, your company can help the University achieve the 5% goal by managing
your second tier minority purchases. Second tier business refers to incidental business expenses your company may
spend with MBE firms as it pursues the normal course of business supplying the University products or services. Here
are some examples:
          You may report a percentage of your inbound freight conducted with an MBE firm.
          You may report a percentage of the cleaning expenses for your facility.
          If you travel to maintain your business with us, you could use a MBE travel agency and report that
             expense.
These expenses can only be reported to the extent that they relate to your business with the University. The
percentage of the expense you can report is determined by the amount of your University sales as it relates to your
total sales volume.
Per the terms of your contract you should actively pursue directing business towards these types of companies, and
report your efforts in this regard on a semi annual basis.

6. In paragraph form please describe your company’s action plan with regard to the planned use of MBE businesses in
subcontracting efforts, as well as developing second tier MBE providers. Please incorporate your specific
commitments.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: The Software Rider provides terms and conditions relating to acquisition of information
systems software which is offered in a pre-packaged form by a Contractor.

1.0      ACCEPTANCE/STANDARD OF PERFORMANCE: After software installation is complete, Contractor shall certify in
         writing to the University that the software is installed and ready for use on the University's system. With Contractor's
         assistance, the agency shall begin performing acceptance tests within thirty (30) calendar days of receipt of such
         notification. The tests will determine whether the following acceptance criteria are met:

         a.      Software operates in conformance with Contractor's technical specifications and functional descriptions.

         b.      Software meets the specifications and performs the functions as contained in the University's solicitation
                 document.

         c.      Software is capable of running on a repetitive basis as supplied by the University, without failure.

         d.      Software is capable of meeting the performance expectation as expressed in the University's solicitation
                 document.

         e.      Software does not require modifications to other operational software systems and does not cause
                 performance degradation of other systems operating on the University's computing system and network.

         The acceptance period of 90 consecutive calendar days shall commence within thirty (30) days of the installation
         date at which time operational control becomes the responsibility of the University. The University will give notice to
         Contractor as to the actual date when the acceptance period will begin.

         If problems are encountered during the acceptance period, it is not required that the 90 day period expire in order
         for a new acceptance period to begin, once all problems have been resolved. If the software meets the University's
         acceptance criteria for 90 calendar days from the commencement of the acceptance period it shall be deemed to
         have met the University's standard of performance. Contractor agrees that this standard of performance shall not
         be reduced in the course of the University's usage of the software.

         If successful completion of the acceptance period is not attained within 90 calendar days from the installation date,
         the University shall have the option of terminating this Agreement upon written notice without penalty or continuing
         the acceptance test.
UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN                                             PROPOSAL NO.: 07-5945
MADISON, WISCONSIN 53715-1218                                       PAGE 37 OF 41

       The University's option to terminate this Agreement shall remain in effect until such time as a successful acceptance
       test is completed. Contractor shall be liable for all outbound preparation and shipping costs for contracted items
       returned under this clause. Upon successful completion of the acceptance test, the University shall promptly notify
       Contractor in writing of the acceptance and authorize the payments beginning with the first day following
       acceptance.

2.0    ACCESS TO SOFTWARE: Contractor, its agents or employees shall have access to inspect or observe the
       University's use of the software at reasonable times upon first giving notice to the University of Contractor's intent to
       perform such inspection.

3.0    DOCUMENTATION AND OPERATING MANUALS: Contractor shall provide, at no additional charge, operating
       manuals which describe in detail the software capabilities, its operation, installation procedures, error messages
       with identification of probable causes, software modification procedures and techniques, and program interfaces. An
       electronic copy of these manuals will be furnished for each individual piece of software ordered by the University.
       Updated, revised, or replacement manuals published by Contractor shall be provided free of charge pursuant to the
       requirements specified in this section. Contractor agrees that the University may make such additional copies of
       documentation supplied pursuant to this section as are needed for use by University employees.

4.0    FIXES, UPGRADES AND FUTURE SOFTWARE OPTIONS:

       4.1     FIXES: For the contracted term as established in the software maintenance and technical support
               agreement which start after the University's acceptance of the software, Contractor shall correct any and all
               errors in the soft-ware, regardless of whether the error is brought to the attention of Contractor by another
               user of the software or by the University, or by any other person. Contractor shall provide the University
               with program fixes for errors within thirty (30) days after Contractor is made aware of the errors; provided,
               however, that upon request of the University, Contractor shall correct any error reasonably deemed
               important to the University's continued use of the software within ten (10) days after the University has
               notified Contractor in writing of the error. Contractor understands that if the application of program fixes to
               the software or failure to supply program fixes for the software causes the effectiveness level to fall below
               the University's Ongoing Performance Requirement that the University may terminate this agreement.

       4.2     UPGRADES AND ENHANCEMENTS: For the contracted term as established in the software maintenance
               and technical support agreement after the University's acceptance of the software, Contractor shall provide
               to the University, at no additional cost, any changed or enhanced versions of the software within forty-five
               (45) days after the changed or enhanced versions are made available to customers. The University shall
               have the option to perform an acceptance test as specified in this Software Rider and to accept the
               changed or revised version in lieu of the software it had accepted previously. Contractor understands that
               acceptance of changed or enhanced versions of the software by the University in no way reduces
               Contractor's obligation to meet the University's Ongoing Performance Requirement.

       4.3     FUTURE SOFTWARE OPTIONS AND REPLACEMENT SOFTWARE: Contractor grants the University the
               option, for any software for which the University has paid a one-time purchase or license fee, to acquire any
               software options or replacement software which Contractor shall make available after the acceptance date
               at the lesser of (a) Contractor's published purchase price for the software options or replacement software,
               or (b) the difference between Contractor's published purchase price for the replacement software or
               software options and the current or most recent purchaser license fee for the software or software options
               previously acquired by the University under this Agreement. This provision shall remain in effect for the
               duration of the expected lifetime of the software as specified in the University's solicitation document.

5.0    INSTALLATION: The University agrees to have the software installation site prepared in accordance with vendor's
       written specifications prior to the installation date. The University shall provide reasonable access to the installation
       site to enable Contractor to plan the installation.

       A complete minimum disruption installation plan for installing and certifying the software must be provided by
       Contractor. The plan must detail all activities to successfully install and operate the software including but not limited
       to regeneration of other system software, renaming of software entities to conform to installation site naming
       standards and security authorizations.

       site until the software has been successfully installed and certified as ready for acceptance testing by Contractor.
       Upon completion of the installation, Contractor shall provide written certification to the University that Contractor's
       most recent version of all ordered software has been installed with all program fixes for known errors and that the
       software is ready for acceptance testing.

       The University's request, subject to the charges for technical services listed in Contractor's response to the
       University's solicitation document, contractor shall furnish expert assistance at the University's installation site during
       the installation of any software designated as "customer installed".

6.0    LICENSE/TITLE: Contractor grants license to the University which authorizes the University to:

      a.      use the licensed software in machine readable form on the machine(s) designated on the University's order
              for use of such licensed software and, in conjunction therewith, to store the licensed software in transmit it
              through or display it on units of equipment associated with such designated machine(s).

      b.      Licensed software provided by the Contractor in printed form may not be copied. However, additional copies
              of licensed software in printed form may be obtained by the University from Contractor under license from
              Contractor to the University at the charges listed in Contractor's response to the University's solicitation
              document.

       No right to use, print, copy or display the licensed software, in whole or in part, is granted by Contractor to the
       University, except as expressly provided by the terms of this Agreement.

       6.1     TEMPORARY LICENSE TRANSFER: The University is authorized to transfer the license to and to use the
               licensed software on: (a) a backup machine wherein the designated machine or an associated unit required

       6.6     TITLE: Contractor represents and warrants that it is the sole owner of the licensed software product or, if
               not the owner has received all proper authorizations from the owner to license the software product, and
               has the full right and power to grant the rights contained in this Agreement. Contractor further warrants and
               represents that the software product is of original development, and that the package and its use will not
               violate or infringe upon any patent, copyright, trade secret or other property right of any other person.

       6.7     TERM OF LICENSE: The software license(s) identified in Contractor's response to the University's
               solicitation document is (are) purchased on a perpetual license basis (unless otherwise stated in the
               Contractor's response) and shall continue in perpetuity until cancelled by the University or unless terminated
               in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement. The license(s) granted to the University is (are) for the
               use of the software product(s) at any location in the Network.

       6.8     TERMS OF USE: The University's rights in licensed software developed at private expense may be
               restricted by Contractor in accordance with this Agreement. As a minimum, however, the University shall
               have:

               a.       unlimited use of such software on the equipment for which it is acquired;

               b.       use of such software with a backup system if the system(s) for which or with which it was acquired
                        is inoperative because of a malfunction, or during an emergency, or the performance of engineering
                        changes or changes in features or model;

               c.       the right to use such software at any installation to which the computer(s) may be transferred by the
                        University;

               d.       the right to copy such computer programs for safekeeping (archives) or backup purposes;

               e.       the right to modify such software or combine it with other programs or material at University risk;

                        from other sources.
               g.       All data in the EMR software belongs to the University. Should the contractor, for any reason, cease
                        to provide support or upgrades for the EMR software, it must give the University access to the EMR
                        software source code and documentation at no charge above shipping costs. If the University is
                        given the source code and documentation, it will not use the source code or documentation to
                        manufacture a competitive product, but only for the purposes of maintaining the existing EMR
                        software in a stable, usable condition, or for exporting the data to another EMR software

7.0    LICENSED PROGRAM TESTING: For each licensed software product, the testing period, if any, during which the
       software product will be made available for nonproductive use, is specified in Contractor's response to the
       University's solicitation document. The purpose of the testing period is to determine whether the licensed software
       product functions effectively and to assist the University in determining whether each licensed software product
       meets the University's requirements. Each testing period will begin ten (10) calendar days after shipment from
       Contractor of the licensed software product, but in no event prior to the University's receipt of the licensed software
       product, unless otherwise expressly provided herein.

       Subsequent releases by Contractor, if any, of any licensed software which has the same program number as
       licensed software licensed hereunder shall be made available to the University for productive use and/or testing on
       a machine specified while the University continues productive use of a previous release of that software on that
       machine. In such event, however, the University shall continue to pay contractor the charges applicable for use of
       the previous release of the licensed software until such time as the University elects to discontinue the license for
       said software. The University reserves the right to decide whether to install any such releases or continue use of a
       previous release, having given due regard to the other provisions of this Agreement.

8.0    MAINTENANCE ASSURANCE: Contractor agrees to make available maintenance services to meet the University's
       On-going Performance Requirement for as long as the software is utilized by the University. Such services shall be
       available at the prices contained in Contractor's response to the University's solicitation document, but shall in no
       event exceed these prices plus 5% per year for each year after the date of acceptance of the software.

9.0    ONGOING PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENT: Any software installed as a result of this Agreement must perform
       at an effectiveness level of 99.9% each month following acceptance during the effective life cycle of that software as
       specified in the University's solicitation document and as provided for in Contractor's response with respect to costs.
       For the purposes of this Software Rider, the effectiveness level shall be computed as the number of days in a
       calendar month that the installed software completely and continuously met or exceeded the standard of
       performance established at acceptance (as specified in the Acceptance/Standard of Performance section of this
       Software Rider) divided by the total number of days in the month, and expressed as a percentage.

10.0   PROGRAM SERVICES: For each licensed software product, the type(s) and period(s) of program services, if any,
       to be provided without additional charge for a current release of the licensed software product are specified in
       Contractor's response to the University's solicitation document.

       Program services will commence at the beginning of the licensed software testing period or, if there is no testing
       period for that license, when the charges, other than charges for early shipment of licensed printed materials, are
       due.

       10.1    LOCAL SERVICES: When a problem occurs which the University determines is caused by the use of the
               licensed software and the diagnosis of Contractor's designated representative indicates the problem is
               caused by a defect in the unaltered portion of a current release of the licensed software, Contractor's
               designated representative will perform the following problem resolution activities:

               a.       attempt to correct or bypass the defect by providing the University with correction information; or

               b.       submit documentation of the problem to the appropriate Contractor personnel for resolution; and in
                        any event,

               c.       if the program is inoperable, make every reasonable effort to resolve the problem by applying a
                        local fix or providing a bypass.


11.0   PROTECTION AND SECURITY OF LICENSED SOFTWARE MATERIALS: All copies of the licensed software
       materials made by the University including translations, compilations and partial copies within modifications and
       updated work products are the exclusive property of Contractor. The University shall reproduce and include the
       copyright notice on any such copies in accordance with the copyright instructions, if any, provided by Contractor.

       The University shall maintain sufficient records to identify the number and location of all copies of licensed software
       materials and shall notify Contractor in writing if the original or any copy of the licensed software materials will be
       kept at an installation (or location, when specified "Location License Applies"), other than that of the machine
       designated.

       The University shall insure, prior to disposing of any media, that any licensed software materials contained thereon
       have been erased or otherwise destroyed.

       The University shall not provide or otherwise make available any licensed software materials in any form without
       Contractor's prior written consent except to the University's employees, Contractor's employees or other persons
       during the period they are on the University's premises for purposes specifically related to the University's lawful use
       of the licensed software.

12.0   RELOCATION OF SOFTWARE: The University may transfer the licensed software to any other University entity
       after giving notice to contractor and specifying the location and machine where the licensed software will be
       installed.

13.0   RETURN OR DESTRUCTION OF LICENSED PROGRAM MATERIALS: Within thirty (30) days from the date of
       discontinuance by the University of any licensed software, the University shall notify Contractor in writing, that
       through the University's best efforts, and to the best of the University's knowledge, the original and all copies of any
       licensed program materials received from Contractor or made in connection with such license have been returned
       or destroyed. This requirement will apply to all copies in any form including translations, whether partial or

       When the University has been licensed by Contractor to use a new version of the licensed software, which carries a
       different program number under an amendment to this Agreement, the University may retain the prior version of the
       licensed software for a period not to exceed ninety (90) days following the date of discontinuance of prior version of
       said programs; provided, however, that the retained prior version of said programs may be used by the University
       only if a defect in the new version prevents its use. During said ninety (90) day period, the University will pay only
       the applicable charges for the new version of the licensed software. Within thirty (30) days immediately following
       said ninety (90) day period, the University will certify in writing to Contractor that all copies of program materials
       received or made in connection with the prior version have been returned to Contractor or destroyed as set forth
       above.

14.0   SOFTWARE STANDARDS: Contractor agrees to make every reasonable effort to furnish documentation and
       machine-readable programs which will conform to standards for such documentation and programs used at the
       University's installation site. The University agrees that it will make every reasonable accommodation to its
       standards and procedures to enable Contractor's licensed software to operate efficiently and effectively on the
       University's network.

15.0   SPECIFIED OPERATING ENVIRONMENT: Each licensed software product is designed to operate on one or more
       machine types and, in most instances, in conjunction with other vendor's equipment and software. Contractor's
       response to the University's solicitation document states the environments in which the licensed software is
       designed to operate.

       The University reserves the right to exchange copies of the licensed software designed to operate in one operating
       environment for copies designed to operate in another operating environment in which Contractor has stated the
       licensed software is designed to operate. Should the University exercise this right it will pay any costs of shipping
       and handling involved in the exchange as well as any positive cost difference between the two licenses.

       Contractor acknowledges that the environment of equipment and software in which the licensed software will
       operate will be subject to frequent changes and enhancements other than those supplied by Contractor. Contractor
       agrees to cooperate with the University and other vendors of equipment and software to support the stable
       operation of the licensed software so long as the University maintains a compatible operating environment.

16.0   TECHNICAL SERVICES: Contractor's technical personnel shall be available to assist the University in
       implementation, review, and improvement of existing systems and to advise on the development, and
       implementation of new systems involving Contractor's software. Charges, if any, for this assistance have been
       included in Contractor's response to the University's solicitation document and these charges will increase by no
       more than 5% year. Any actual changes in the charges for technical services will require mutual agreement and are
       subject to the Pricing and Discount provisions of the Standard Terms and Conditions of this Agreement.

17.0   TRAINING: Contractor shall provide continuing training for personnel to achieve the level of proficiency necessary
       to support the University's use of software provided by Contractor. Charges, if any, for training have been included
       in Contractor's response to the University's solicitation document and these charges will increase by no more than
       5% per year. Any actual changes in the charges for training will require mutual agreement and are subject to the
       Pricing and Discount provisions of the Standard Terms and Conditions of this Agreement.
