                                             FOR TECHNOLOGY PROJECTS
                                                       ISSUED BY
                                           Minnesota Department of Public Safety
                                            Driver & Vehicle Services Division

Project Title
Driver & Vehicle Services Websites Development and Enhancement

I.     Project Overview

       The State of Minnesota, Department of Public Safety (DPS), Driver and Vehicle Services Division (DVS) requires design,
       development and enhancement of the current DVS websites; (public) www.mndriveinfo.org and (business/private)
       www.dvsesupport.org. The DVS requires enhancements to the existing websites to include, but not limited to;
       development of management screens, web application reporting functions, new business functionality, creation of new
       datasources and database schemas, utilities for cleaning data, and security protection to ensure privacy and integrity of
       data.

       The projects specified in this Statement of Work (SOW) are antic ipated to be completed between February 28, 2005 and
       March 31, 2006. The DVS websites development must be done within Visual Interdev and Active Server Pages (ASP),
       with connectivity to Structured Query Language (SQL) databases, eXtensible Markup Language (XML), programming in
       C++ with Visual C++ or Visual Basic (VB) COM objects, and must utilize WRQ Verastream Host Integration (VHI) server
       communication tool for data access to the State’s IBM mainframe. These applications integrate data from SQL servers
       with Supra databases on the State’s IBM mainframe and will provide new business logic and function for DVS activities
       with transactions for law enforcement, citizens and business partners. Familiarity with DVS processes; which include
       driver license and motor vehicle data, current web applications, business rules and logic for issuing driver license and
       motor vehicle registration, database structures, paradigms and architecture for DVS web services, and WRQ VHI software
       are important for success in delivering applications within very short timeframes for each project. No screen scraping will
       be involved in these applications.

II.    Project Goals

       The DVS is in need of professional technical services for the design, development, enhancement and implementation of
       web application projects. The DPS does not have qualified staff with extensive knowledge of WRQ Verastream VHI
       software products, and intuitive, creative, graphical web development skills necessary to deliver the following lists of
       projects in a timely or cost effective manner. The goal of the DVS through the completion of the Statement of Work
       projects is to provide design, development and enhancement of the existing DVS websites to allow DVS to change
       business processes and increase the accuracy and timeliness of data gathering and reporting, while moving key applications
       to a web environment, for use by State agencies and State authorized business partners (business/private), and citizens
       requiring services of the DVS (public). The services provided through this Statement of Work (SOW) must utilize the
       existing WRQ Verastream VHI web software and business model; DVS websites development must be done within Visual
       InterDev and Active Server Pages (ASP), with connectivity to Structured Query Language (SQL) databases, eXtensible
       Markup Language (XML), programming in C++ with Visual C++ or Visual Basic (VB), COM objects, experience with
       Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) platform and with WRQ Verastream Host Integration (VHI) server
       communication tool for data access to the State’s IBM mainframe.

       Projects which may be included in work assigned by DVS include:

       1. Web applications and enhancements for law enforcement and citizen motor vehicle accident reporting.
       2. Integration of State’s Written Knowledge Testing system at statewide Driver License test sites with existing Driver
          License Exam and Online Renewal software.
       3. Development of XML schemas for electronic transfer of data with law enforcement and other DVS business/private
          partners.
       4. Development/coding of business logic for managing Driver License (DL) compliance: withdrawal(s) of Minnesota
          driving privileges, requirements, and reinstatements.
       5. Development of system structure to manage convictions, requirements, and reinstatements.

                                                                                                                Page 1 of 21
       6.    Design automatic “business” letter generation from SQL database with automated system business logic.
       7.    Design database schema for integration of Driver License (DL) and Motor Vehicle (MV) information systems.
       8.    Enhancements of current DL Record web applications.
       9.    Build system backbone for MV information system, for motor vehicle titling and registration.
       10.   Design and develop XML schemas for electronic transfer of MV data.
       11.   Integration of DL and MV web services systems with State’s financial reporting systems.
       12.   Database design to hold/archive information needed for audit of processes; motor vehicle databases.
       13.   Provide DVS with documentation on schema of design, development and web application enhancements.
       14.   Design of the websites, that are accessible to business/private and public, emulates the look and feel of the State
             of Minnesota’s North Star Portal presentation design (Style sheets and code are available at
             www.Devcenter.state.mn.us).

       The DVS will analyze the effectiveness of existing DVS websites applications and the business needs for further creation
       and enhancement of web applications, and may therefore require other work be provided by the contractor pertinent to this
       SOW. Any additional web application design, development and enhancements required by the DVS under this Statement of
       Work will need to be completed within the terms and conditions of the contractor’s master contract with the State and the
       work order to this project.

III.   Project Deliverables

       The design, development and enhancements for the projects contracted for under this Statement of Work, must provide
       the following results for acceptance by the DVS’ Authorized Representative of this work order for payment.

       1. Integration with existing databases and web applications, within project assignment timeframes. Extensive experience
          with SQL, WRQ VHI software, and the DVS business practices, will be required to ensure timely completion of
          projects. Anticipated number of hours is 2,000 – 4,000; which includes creation of databases, writing lines of code,
          com objects, stored procedures, and documentation of project process. A majority of applications must be developed
          and tested within one to two months from assignment of project by DVS management.

       2. Project development must be completed within Microsoft Visual Interdev (ASP). Applications may either be browser
          specific or browser independent, based on the DVS criteria specified.

       3. Design graphic interfaces consistent with the State of Minnesota’s North Star Portal look and feel as specified by the
          DVS management; acceptance will be made by the DVS management with input from their end-users. DVS utilizes
          XML/XSL/XSD documents, style sheets and schemas as part of the graphic interfaces currently.

       4. Security and other authentication to ensure privacy of data. Levels of security will be determined for each application
          and will be managed through the use of the DVS primary login access screen.

       5. Active Server Pages (ASP) web page print functionality. Software built will enable migration to a paperless business
          process for DVS, so print functionality must recreate very complex and graphically rich paper forms, without PDF
          functionality.

       6. Creation of stored procedures, optimizing query performance, designing and writing Data Transformation Services
          (DTS) packages.

       7. Integration with existing DVS web online fee payment and other applications, modules and libraries.

       8. Database schema must be documented in partnership with DVS, in the creation of database structures. Performance
          of web pages and database access must be responsive, without requiring additional DVS network/hardware
          infrastructure upgrades. System testing will be required for each project, and performance tuning may be required for
          some projects as required by the DVS’ Authorized Representative of this project and work order for acceptance of the
          project deliverable.

       9. Provide DVS with written documentation on schema of design, development and web application enhancement. This
          documentation may also be required in electronic submission on a Microsoft Windows readable CD-ROM media and

                                                                                                                 Page 2 of 21

          1. Contractor is to define DVS websites application development needs specifications and Work Plan specifications for
             design, development and enhancement of DVS websites applications. Completion of the DVS websites application
             development needs specifications and Work Plan specifications will need to be accomplished within one week from
             execution date of the Support and Operations Services Work Order between the DVS and the contractor for this
             project.

          2. DVS websites application design, development, enhancement and testing of the specified DVS websites applications as
             defined in this Statement of Work “Project Goals”. The design, development, enhancement and testing of the DVS
             websites applications should be completed within one to two months from assignment of project by the DVS Project

                                                                                                                   Page 3 of 21
            Manager.

        3. Testing of specified DVS websites applications should begin in March 2005, and final acceptance of all DVS websites
           applications assigned, and accepted under this Statement of Work by the DVS Project Manager are to be completed by
           March 31, 2006.

        4. Testing of DVS websites applications will be conducted by DVS staff who develop test plans and with pilot groups of
           DVS end-users. The testing begins as soon as prototype screens are developed and approved by DVS, so that DVS
           can identify test datasets and results. A majority of the applications will be tested by processing the data on the legacy
           mainframe. Applications will be run on DVS development servers while testing is in progress and problems are
           documented. Applications specified in this SOW must operate with an average level of 95 percent effectiveness or
           more during the testing and acceptance period. The average effectiveness level will be based on three metrics: 1)
           transaction failure rate, which will be evaluated on the number of prototype screens that receive error messages and
           do not display the desired screen. 2) incorrectly or not displaying data in the correct web page fields. 3) functionality
           and performance of graphic interfaces, ASP page print, security authentication and database integration.

        5. DVS will provide Contractor with documentation of modifications that need to be made to correct application
           problems; after modifications are made by the contractor the same tests will be run again to verify correctness. DVS
           will make the final decision on acceptance that the product is ready for production. DVS will require a two-week
           timeframe in which to fine tune the product with the end-users testing in a variety of environments. At the conclusion
           of this two-week timeframe, DVS will certify whether this product is acceptable for full production.

        6. The contractor will be required to provide DVS with documentation of the installation process for all modules as
           defined in Section III., of this SOW, titled “Project Deliverables”.

               collusion with your proposal. Forms are attached to this Statement of Work.
           • Identify your company’s bidder for the reverse auction portion of this solicitation, including, name, telephone
               number and email address. If your company submits more than one individual’s resume for this project, each
               individual must have a designated bidder for the reverse auction.
           • Signed written cost proposal is required and is to be sealed in a separate envelope labeled “Cost Proposal”
               and included with your written technical proposal for this project.

        Through this Statement of Work, DVS is searching for one individual to work on this project with DVS staff on site at the
        DVS’ central office located at 445 Minnesota Street, St. Paul, Minnesota. Services of this individual are anticipated to be
        needed from February 28, 2005 through March 31, 2006.

        •   Evaluation Process

            A DVS evaluation team will evaluate all proposals.

            Proposals will be scored based on the first three criteria listed below to determine qualified respondents who will be
            interviewed. After interviews are completed DVS will determine qualified respondents to take part in the reverse
            auction portion of this selection process. Respondents selected by DVS to take part in the reverse auction will
            be ranked as equal going into the reverse auction and DVS will select the contractor(s) for this work based
            on results of the reverse auction unless written cost proposals are lower than the results obtained in the
            reverse auction.

            The contractor(s) with the highest overall score may be awarded the contract work order if for any reason DVS
            cancels the reverse auction.

        •   Scoring/Weighting

            Minimum Requirements (maximum 104 points)
            Additional Desired Skills (maximum 98 points)
            Resumes, Work Experience, Work Examples (maximum 36 points)
            Price (sealed cost proposal, maximum 14 points)

        Note: One individual is needed to provide these services for DVS. Qualified individuals will be entered as a separate bidder
        for the purpose of the reverse auction. Therefore, if respondent identifies more than one individual from their company to
        provide these services, they must provide a separate bidder for each individual in the reverse auction.

Conflicts of Interest
   Responder must provide a list of all entities with which it has relationships that create, or appear to create, a conflict of interest
   with the work that is contemplated in this Statement of Work. The list should indicate the name of the entity, the relationship,
   and a discussion of the Work Order.

Disposition of Responses
    All materials submitted in response to this Statement of Work will become property of the State and will become public
    record after the evaluation process is completed and an award decision made. If the Responder submits information in
    response to this Statement of Work that it believes to be trade secret materials, as defined by the Minnesota Government
    Data Practices Act, Minn. Stat. § 13.37, the Responder must:
        · clearly mark all trade secret materials in its response at the time the response is submitted,
        · include a statement with its response justifying the trade secret designation for each item, and
        · defend any action seeking release of the materials it believes to be trade secret, and indemnify and hold harmless
            the State, its agents and employees, from any judgments or damages awarded against the State in favor of the
            party requesting the materials, and any and all costs connected with that defense. This indemnification survives
            the State’s award of a contract. In submitting a response to this Statement of Work, the Responder agrees that
            this indemnification survives as long as the trade secret materials are in possession of the State.
    The State will not consider the prices submitted by the Responder to be proprietary or trade secret materials.

    Responses to this Statement of Work will not be open for public review until the State decides to pursue a contract and
    that contract is awarded.

Federal money will be used to pay for all or part of the work under the contract; therefore the Proposer must complete the
attached Certification Regarding Lobbying and submit it as part of its proposal.

Foreign Outsourcing of Work Prohibited
   All services under this contract shall be performed within the borders of the United States. All storage and processing of
   information shall be performed within the borders of the United States. This provision also applies to work performed by

Contingency Fees Prohibited
   Pursuant to Minnesota Statutes Section 10A.06, no person may act as or employ a lobbyist for compensation that is
   dependent upon the result or outcome of any legislation or administrative action.

Organizational Conflicts of Interest
   The responder warrants that, to the best of its knowledge and belief, and except as otherwise disclosed, there are no
   relevant facts or circumstances which could give rise to organizational conflicts of interest. An organizational conflict of
   interest exists when, because of existing or planned activities or because of relationships with other persons, a vendor is

                                                                                                                      Page 9 of 21
    unable or potentially unable to render impartial assistance or advice to the State, or the vendor’s objectivity in performing
    the contract work is or might be otherwise impaired, or the vendor has an unfair competitive advantage. The responder
    agrees that, if after award, an organizational conflict of interest is discovered, an immediate and full disclosure in writing
    must be made to the Assistant Director of the Department of Administration’s Materials Management Division (“MMD”)
    which must include a description of the action which the contractor has taken or proposes to take to avoid or mitigate
    such conflicts. If an organization conflict of interest is determined to exist, the State may, at its discretion, cancel the
    contract. In the event the responder was aware of an organizational conflict of interest prior to the award of the contract
    and did not disclose the conflict to MMD, the State may terminate the contract for default. The provisions of this clause
    must be included in all subcontracts for work to be performed similar to the service provided by the prime contractor, and
    the terms “contract,” “contractor,” and “contracting officer” modified appropriately to preserve the State’s rights.

Certification Regarding Debarment, Suspension, Ineligibility, and Voluntary Exclusion.
   The agency cannot, at this time, determine whether or not any federal funds might be used to pay for any part of the
   proposed contract, therefore prospective responders must certify the following, as required by the Compliance
   Supplement to OMB Circular A-133, Compliance Supplement (found at:
   http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/circulars/a133/a133.html):

Certification Regarding Debarment, Suspension, Ineligibility and Voluntary Exclusion -- Lower Tier Covered

    2. The certification in this clause is a material representation of fact upon which reliance was placed when this transaction
         was entered into. If it is later determined that the prospective lower tier participant knowingly rendered an erroneous
         certification, in addition to other remedies available to the Federal Government, the department or agency with which this
         transaction originated may pursue available remedies, including suspension and/or debarment.
    3. The prospective lower tier participant shall provide immediate written notice to the person to which this proposal is
         submitted if at any time the prospective lower tier participant learns that its certification was erroneous when submitted or
         had become erroneous by reason of changed circumstances.
    4. The terms covered transaction, debarred, suspended, ineligible, lower tier covered transaction, participant, person, primary
         covered transaction, principal, proposal, and voluntarily excluded, as used in this clause, have the meaning set out in the
         Definitions and Coverages sections of rules implementing Executive Order 12549. You may contact the person to which
         this proposal is submitted for assistance in obtaining a copy of those regulations.
    5. The prospective lower tier participant agrees by submitting this response that, should the proposed covered transaction be
         entered into, it shall not knowingly enter into any lower tier covered transaction with a person who is proposed for
         debarment under 48 CFR part 9, subpart 9.4, debarred, suspended, declared ineligible, or voluntarily excluded from
         participation in this covered transaction, unless authorized by the department or agency with which this transaction
         originated.

         transaction that it is not proposed for debarment under 48 CFR part 9, subpart 9.4, debarred, suspended, ineligible, or
         voluntarily excluded from covered transactions, unless it knows that the certification is erroneous. A participant may

         required to, check the List of Parties Excluded from Federal Procurement and Nonprocurement Programs
    8. Nothing contained in the foregoing shall be construed to require establishment of a system of records in order to render in
         good faith the certification required by this clause. The knowledge and information of a participant is not required to
         exceed that which is normally possessed by a prudent person in the ordinary course of business dealings.
    9. Except for transactions authorized under paragraph 5 of these instructions, if a participant in a covered transaction
         knowingly enters into a lower tier covered transaction with a person who is proposed for debarment under 48 C.F.R. 9,
         subpart 9.4, suspended, debarred, ineligible, or voluntarily excluded from participation in this transaction, in addition to
         other remedies available to the federal government, the department or agency with which this transaction originated may

                                       Department of Public Safety’s Security Architecture

Minnesota Department of Public Safety divisions and their vendors should be aware of the department’s security architecture when
designing and/or implementing applications or installing network devices on departmental resources.

Web Based Applications and/or Servers

        Web Based Applications should be based upon Microsoft Internet Information Server unless there is compelling business
        needs to use some other Web Server environment.

        Web Based Servers will be installed on a separate and isolated Ethernet network segment behind a departmental firewall.

        The departmental network is TCP/IP based. The department does not support IPX and/or SPX traffic.

        As the default profile of the firewall is to deny all incoming and outgoing traffic, DPS divisions and/or their vendors must
        provide all source and destination addresses, port numbers, and protocols required for network communications. In addition,
        they must provide a written business need for the network communications.

Database Applications and/or Servers

        Database Applications should be based upon Microsoft SQL Server unless there are business needs to use some other
        Database Server environment.

        Database Servers will be installed on a separate and isolated Ethernet network segment behind a departmental firewall.

        The departmental network is TCP/IP based. The department does not support IPX and/or SPX traffic.

        As the default profile of the firewall is to deny all incoming and outgoing traffic, DPS divisions and/or their vendors must
        provide all source and destination addresses, port numbers, and protocols required for network communications. In addition,
        they must provide a written business need for the network communications.

Email Based Applications and/or Servers

        DPS divisions and/or their vendors are encouraged to use the department’s email system where appropriate.

        Email Based Applications should be based upon Microsoft Exchange Server unless there is compelling business needs to use
        some other Web Server environment.

        Email Servers will be installed on a separate and isolated Ethernet network segment behind a departmental firewall.

        The departmental network is TCP/IP based. The department does not support IPX and/or SPX traffic.

        As the default profile of the firewall is to deny all incoming and outgoing traffic, DPS divisions and/or their vendors must
        provide all source and destination addresses, port numbers, and protocols required for network communications. In addition,
        they must provide a written business need for the network communications.

Applications and/or Application Servers

    DPS divisions and/or their vendors will need to discuss with the departmental Security Manager as to the appropriate placement of
    applications and application servers.

Data Privacy

        Since some departmental data is classified as private, this type of data must be protected during transport across public
        networks and possibly in storage.

        The department has implemented Virtual Private Network (VPN) technology to aid in the transport of private data.



                                                                                                                     Page 13 of 21

GENERAL AUCTION INFORMATION
THE BIDDER
It is important that your company identify a designated “bidder.” A “bidder” is the person who will attend the training
session and who will enter bids into the system during the actual live auction. It is very important that this person
participates in the training session, so any questions on the bidding process can be answered. This will ensure the
successful participation of your company during the actual auction. The designated “bidder” must be authorized to offer
prices and bind your company to those prices entered during the auction.

TRAINING SESSION
A representative from the State will contact you one or two days before the start of the auction to schedule a training
session during which you will receive instructions on how to enter your bids into the system during the live reverse auction.
During the training session, you will submit bids for a fictitious auction of related example items. SOW -related questions
will not be answered during the reverse auction training.
LIVE AUCTION PROCESS
The following process will apply to this auction:
 Bidding is open only to respondents who have returned a complete proposals by the due date and time stated in the SOW for
this project and have been rated by DVS to be the most qualified to provide services.
 Submit your starting or pre-bid for each item as directed during the training session.
 Log in to the live auction event 5-10 minutes prior to the auction start time.
 Extensions will continue to automatically reset the auction clock until no bids that meet the extension rules are placed
 and the time on the auction clock expires.

If you experience any technical difficulties that prevent you from bidding, you should contact the MMD Helpline at
651.296.2600. If necessary, the auction manager will place your bid for you. At the conclusion of the auction, the
software provides a bid history that can be reconciled to faxed bids.

DVS will select the contractor for this project with the lowest bidding, responsible and qualified contractor, meeting all terms,
conditions, and requirements of the SOW. The State reserves the right to issue contracts to more than one responder, to
accept or reject any or all responses and to cancel the solicitation in part or in its entirety, whichever is to the best advantage of
the State.
