Most of the State's software needs can be best met by using Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) software. When COTS is not the best solution, the State may elect to either use Modified Off-the-Shelf (MOTS) software or develop custom software applications. To satisfy these alternative approaches, the State is seeking to engage contractors to either (a) enhance or re-write pre-existing, installed software applications, either MOTS or custom software, or (b) design and develop small custom software applications. The purpose of this solicitation is to meet these needs by establishing a statewide, indefinite-delivery, task order, multiple-award, fixed-price, deliverables-based contract vehicle for use by an authorized state or local public body. With such contracts, the State hopes to reduce cost, accelerate acquisition time, and acquire a complete, detailed, and documented application for the UGU(s).
