ADPQ ProcurementsPlease Note: To be considered for ADPQ procurements, the Vendor responding to the RFO must hold a current California Multiple Award Schedule (CMAS) agreement that includes labor categories for the design and development of the service described in the RFO and be an approved vendor on the Agile Development Pre-Qualified (ADPQ) vendor pool list.
Agile Development Pre-Qualified Vendor Pool In July 2016, the California Health and Human Services Agency (CHHSA) established a pre-qualified pool of vendors who provide user-centered design and agile software development services. The goal of the Agile Development Pre-Qualified (ADPQ) vendor pool was to reduce solicitation time and administrative costs to the State and vendors. Vetting vendors’ qualifications through this new contract vehicle is also expected to significantly accelerate the production of working software. CHHSA has since transferred the managing of the ADPQ vendor pool to the California Department of Technology (CDT). CDT anticipates releasing a Request for Information (RFI) to refresh the vendor pool and expand the number of qualified vendors from 11 to up to 30 in January 2017. See the links below for more information.
