Request for Proposals (RFP) Transit Scheduling and Run-Cutting Software
Requirements Compliance Matrix Checklist - REQUIRED

Does MCTA’s current scheduling system integrate with Avail solely via XML file?


If there are additional integration requirements, is MCTA aware of any required cost from Avail to integrate?

There may be a required cost to integrate. MCTA anticipates covering this cost.

Will MCTA provide their existing scheduling data dating back to July 1, 2019?

Yes, as XML files.

Does MCTA require the run/roster data to be available on the new software?

Yes. MCTA operates by block / run. Roster data, meaning driver names associated with specific bids, is helpful and available with our current scheduling package.

Will MCTA allow proposers to submit additional/supplemental pricing materials in addition to filling out the provided Price Proposal Form?

This RFP is only evaluating a scheduling package. If you have other offerings that integrate with, but are not required or provide premium features, for operation of the scheduling package, you may propose them outside of the RFP with a separate letter.

The selection criteria include "Potential for cost efficiencies based on provided rate schedules" (RFP pg. 12). Can MCTA explain this requirement further?

This is the price analysis function. Because this is an RFP, we don't have to select the lowest cost proposal, but rather the best solution based on factors that include cost. We gained efficiencies of time by moving to our current scheduling package. We will be evaluating the efficiencies of time and cost based on the rate schedule (price) you provide.

The RFP requests as part of submissions "Description of quality control procedures" (RFP pg. 8). Can MCTA please clarify this requirement?

If your organziation has quality control procedures developed that help ensure that the project implementation stays within scope, on time, and within budget, we'd like you to share them.

Will there only be 2 users of the software? If more, can you provide their titles?

Assistant Executive Director and Executive Office Analysit are the current users of the scheduling package.

Is MCTA interested in seeing details of optional products and services in responses (specifically Operations/Dispatching software that is beyond the scope of this RFP)?

This RFP is only evaluating a scheduling package. If you have other offerings that integrate with, but are not required or provide premium features, for operation of the scheduling package, you may propose them outside of the RFP with a separate letter.
