Human Resource/Finance Enterprise Resources Planning System
The San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE) and twenty-three (23) school districts are considering purchasing a new Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP) Software System. Currently, all school districts in San Mateo County use a single county-wide ERP solution. For the purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP), references to SMCOE include all of the Local Education Agencies (LEAs), and the terms are used interchangeably.
SMCOE is therefore soliciting proposals for a comprehensive, fully integrated ERP that is preferably cloud-based, and that not only meets the requirements set forth in this RFP, but is also flexible and scalable in order to meet its future business and technology needs.
SMCOE will only entertain proposals for an ERP that is fully integrated or intends to be fully integrated as of December 2024 and operational in California school districts. The purpose of this RFP is to provide interested vendors with sufficient information to enable them to develop and submit proposals for application software that will fulfill the specified information processing needs of SMCOE and the LEAs.
