Specifications include, but are not limited to: The Division of Contracts and Procurement has received a request to purchase maintenance for the jail's offender management system from a “sole source” vendor. County currently owns and runs the “Offender Management System” (OMS) software and several servers it resides on at the SLCO Jail. OMS is a County-owned asset. OMS is used for managing many facet sof the jail’s prisoner population. OMS is the foundation of jail operations. Without this tool, the jail would not be able to function effectively. OMS is the only place the Jail’s current and historical data is stored and is accessible in a useable format. Over the years, County has implemented customizations, such as the custom-built interfaces with 20+ of the Jail’s community partners and their software systems. The OMS software was originally created by Digital Solutions Inc. / Digital Solutions Inmate Telephone Inc. (DSI / ITI). Many years ago, Global Tel*Link Corporation (GTL) bought out DSI. GTL now has proprietary rights to the OMS software. Because of their proprietary rights to the OMS software, GTL is the only company in the world that can maintain, update, and/or modify the OMS software. GTL services their software themselves and they do not use other parties to service their OMS software.
