Information Technology (IT) Services and IT Commodities Contracts

The Information Technology and Commodities Section provides all aspects of the procurement process for IT services, maintenance, maintenance-related service contracts and IT commodity procurements for the MDTA. Responsibilities include obtaining quotes, Request for Proposal (RFP) and Invitation to Bid (IFB) development, advertising, pre-bid/proposal meetings, bid openings, award process and contract monitoring.

Software and hardware are procured through the Maryland Department of Information Technology (DoIT) statewide master contracts. The master contracts are re-competed every few years.

On DoIT's website, the CATS Plus Master Contract for IT Services link has a tab for open solicitations. You will find dates for pre-proposal meetings that your company can attend to network with many of the Master Contractors and possibly partner with a contractor on one of the task orders as a subcontractor. DoIT's website is where IT bid opportunities for all Maryland agencies are posted. In addition, the MDTA utilizes DoIT Master Contracts for the procurement of IT commodities.

For items being purchased over $15,000 that are not on a DoIT Master Contract, eMMA is utilized for advertisement.

Services/Maintenance and Small Procurements Contracts

The Services and Maintenance Contracts Section provides all aspects of the procurement process for professional services, facilities/grounds maintenance, maintenance-related service contracts and small procurements for the MDTA. Responsibilities include obtaining quotes, Request for Proposal (RFP) and Invitation to Bid (IFB) development, advertising, pre-bid/proposal meetings, bid openings, award process and contract monitoring.
