Performance Management System Search 2021

Please consider this document as formal Request for Proposal (RFP) for a performance management system for ACCESS. Bids should be submitted to by 10 am November 12, 2020. Bids must be accompanied by a completed version of the RFP document located at and 3 references.

All invitations to bid issued by ACCESS will bind bidders and successful bidders to the conditions and requirements set forth in this Scope of Work, and such conditions shall form an integral part of any purchase contract awarded.

All bidders shall contact HR Generalist Meredith Steih at (313) 550-2293, between the hours of 9:00 am & 4:30 pm M-F to review the scope of work.

Scope of Work:

ACCESS is seeking a performance management system through which we can conduct generalized new hire appraisals, and annual, competency based annual appraisals, with the option for self-appraisals as well. The system should also include the ability for performance documentation like recognition and employee correction documents.

Qualified firms wishing to respond to RFP – “Performance Management System” must provide all equipment and materials described in this document, whether directly or through subcontractors/sub-consultants. This does not, however, limit the use of sub-contractors or sub-consultants.

It is anticipated that the solution will be completely installed, integrated with the financial software, and staff trained before the end of the current calendar year (December 31, 2020)

We are requesting the following features highlighted in the proposal:

  • New hire appraisals
  • Competency-based annual appraisals (self-appraisal and supervisor appraisal)
  • Ability to integrate with current HMIS system
  • Data management for past appraisals

Vendor(s) shall be responsible for all repairs or damages to ACCESS property caused by his/her equipment, personnel or materials used.

The Vendor is to report to the Human Resources Director and/or his designee and will cooperate and confer with him/her as necessary to insure satisfactory work progress.

Furthermore, any operator leaving ACCESS sites in an unsatisfactory condition will be required to return and complete the job with no additional compensation.

Vendor Selection Criteria - ACCESS reserves the right to reject any or all bids, in part or in total, for any objective or subjective reason whatsoever. Late bids will not be accepted. If a proposal is selected, it will be the “best value” (See: "Best Value" following), quality of service, the Vendors' qualifications and capabilities to provide the specified service, and other factors which the ACCESS may consider. ACCESS does not intend to award a bid fully based on any response made to the proposal; ACCESS reserves the right to consider proposals for modifications at any time before a Bid would be awarded, and negotiations would be undertaken with that Vendor whose proposal is deemed to best meet ACCESS' specifications and needs. ACCESS at its sole discretion may award this bid to one or several contractors whatever is deemed in the best interest of ACCESS. Bids will be reviewed and evaluated on a weighted system to determine best value.

Proposals will be reviewed and scored as follows:

  • Library of potential career competencies ~ 20 points
  • Ease of use of appraisals ~ 20 points
  • Additional performance management documentation ~ 20 points
  • Price ~ 20 points
  • Integration and staff training plan ~ 20 points

Based on the criteria above, using a 100 point scale the vendor that accumulates the highest score wins the bid.

“Best Value” means that ACCESS will, in an evaluation of each proposal submittal, consider factors other than just cost in making the award decision.

If the contract is terminated by the ACCESS as provided herein, the vendor will be paid a pro-rated payment as negotiated with the ACCESS for the work completed as of the date of termination.
