Description

Specifications include, but are not limited to: 2. Hardware and Software - All mainframe related hardware and software and associated maintenance for the primary and disaster recovery environments. The Department expects the optimized solution will run in the service provider’s mainframe environment using leveraged resources, assuming the service provider can meet the Federal and State support and security requirements under this type of model. The Department is flexible to operate under existing State software contracts or move to the service provider’s contracts to optimize software costs. Where possible and financially viable, the Department desires to offload the ownership and management of the software to the service provider. 3. Support Services – The Department expects the service provider to take over all aspects of the mainframe hardware infrastructure, hosting the service from the service provider’s facility. The only services the Department will retain are related to application development and support. 4. Networking - The service provider’s services shall include all network and security infrastructure and support within the service provider’s hosting environment. The solution 4 should include all components necessary to provide the Department with secure connectivity to the mainframe in line with the Department’s security requirements. The services shall include redundant data circuits between the Department’s primary and secondary data centers and the service provider’s primary and secondary data centers. The service provider will include routers on premise at the Department to terminate these circuits and provide for encrypted communication between the Department and the service provider. Providers must terminate connection on public Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) addressing (No Request for Comment Number 1918 (RFC 1918)) and be capable of supporting Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). The provider will need to be able to accommodate network taps on all mainframe connections which is required for the DELJIS Mainframe Logging system.
