Notice ID 140D0421R0050

3.1 Scope of Acquisition

The scope of this acquisition includes procurement, implementation, and support for a commercially-available Best-of-Suite Health IT replacement of the RPMS. IHS endeavors to retire its RPMS health information technology platform and replace it with an enterprise health information technology solution. This will be an enterprise instance, centrally managed and governed solution that accommodates participation by numerous Tribal and Urban Indian healthcare organizations alongside the IHS in a multi-tenant environment.
