The purpose of this RFP is to solicit proposals from vendors to design, implement, and maintain a core Enterprise Architecture (EA) for the Office of Technology Services and to provide on-going operational governance of the proposed solution. While the proposed solution will serve initially as the technical infrastructure for the modernization of the Department of Health and Hospital’s core Medicaid functions, proposers should also frame their solution as part of a wider-scale, statewide initiative to consolidate IT infrastructures and assets. The State anticipates the incorporation of other agency programs into the architecture, such as the modernization of the Child Welfare system, TANF, SNAP, and child support systems, in the relative near future after implementation.
