Donations Management Technology Solutions for Disaster Activities This is not an RFP, but a survey to locate potential sources capable of developing a software package that will enable government entities, voluntary agencies and faith-based partners to coordinate offers of donated goods and services following a disaster.

The selected vendor must (1) have sign-off from ARC, ACS, A2H and NVOAD expressing their willingness to participate with the vendor on the project; (2) have proven internet-enabled in-kind donations management experience within a major non-governmental organization or non-profit network of at least 1,000 users; (3) have proven US disaster relief coordination and warehouse management experience; (4) provide at least three on-site training sessions, including training materials; (5) have capacity for on-site deployment to up to 20 disaster relief sites. Firms with these capabilities are invited to submit complete information to the procuring office identified in this notice (2 copies) within fifteen (15) calendar days from the date of this notice. Information furnished should include: (1) the number and professional qualifications of computer experts, technical and other appropriate personnel; (2) company experiences related to the proposed project; (3) a description of general and special facilities; (4) a current financial statement, and (5) other literature which demonstrates the minimum capabilities listed above and abilities to meet initial system deployment date. This synopsis is for information and planning purposes and the Government will not pay or otherwise reimburse respondents for information submitted. Based upon responses received, the Government reserves the right to set-aside any and all procurements that may result hereunder for small or minority-owned businesses. If the evaluation of responses received concludes that none of the responding firms have the necessary capabilities, negotiations may be conducted with the Aidmatrix Foundation on a noncompetitive basis.
