In this free Case Study, learn how City Innovate and the State of California worked together to replace a broken-down disease reporting system during the height of COVID-19
To access solutions available in other states, the State of California in partnership with City Innovate launched a phased Challenge-Based Procurement effort using the provisions of PCC §6611.
- State of California's Procurement Team closed a contract in 14 days. Using a traditional RFI followed by a RFP for the same project would've taken 9-12 months.
- Greater vendor competition led to better outcomes in terms of the quality and cost of the vendor’s deliverables to the State.
- Flow of communication going between the vendor and the State prevented misfires and eliminated potential change orders that kept costs lower than they might otherwise have been.
