DGS RFP 2013-008

I. GENERAL INFORMATION The ORIM is requesting sealed proposals from qualified bidders for a vendor hosted commercially available multi-line RMIS. This RFP includes a description of the insurance and self-insurance programs administered by ORIM and the bidders' responsibilities and requirements with respect to providing a comprehensive solution. II.

BACKROUND ORIM is a government entity under the State of California which was established for the purpose of providing centralized risk management services for State agencies. It is an office within the State Department of General Services (DGS). For over 50 years, ORIM has provided insurance procurement services, claims adjusting services, safety training, loss control, contract management and other risk management services for State agencies and, from time to time, other non State public agencies. Some of the more prominent programs are: i.

Insurance Services Program. Insurance Services Unit (ISU) approves the purchase of insurance for the State. Procurement of insurance is arranged for a multitude of State departments when the decision to purchase insurance has been made. There is more than $14 Million in written premium for approximately 50 policies and programs in force. Each policy or program has varying expiration dates throughout the year. Currently, the management and tracking of policies is done manually. Hundreds of emails are received daily, printed and stored in each individual file or put into an Outlook file created for that specific insurance policy. Reports are typically provided by a contracted insurance broker. Insurance policies and programs procured include property and general liability, fine arts, out of state workers’ compensation, builder’s risk, benefits and other various policies. Equipment maintenance insurance is also procured under the Equipment Maintenance Management Insurance Program (EMMP). This insurance program covers most types of electronic equipment and indemnifies the State for losses incurred including repair and maintenance. This program is in its infancy stage; however, it has grown significantly in the past 12 months.

ii.

Vehicle Liability Self Insurance Program (VELSIP). The State is self-insured for its fleet of approximately 48,000 motor vehicles. VELSIP was established July 1, 1977 to adjust vehicle liability claims made against the State, arising out of the (alleged) negligent operation of State-owned and operated vehicles. ORIM also pursues at-fault parties for the cost of damages sustained to State-owned vehicles and administers a small Automobile Physical Damage Program for several State agencies. State agencies are required to report all vehicle accidents involving State vehicles and State operations to ORIM via a paper form entitled the “State Vehicle Accident Report” Standard Form 270 (STD. 270). The STD. 270 is typically mailed, faxed or walked into ORIM. The accident information is manually entered into the RMIS. ORIM does not currently use a document imaging/management system to store or track digital images. The STD. 270 and all accident related correspondence are maintained in a physical

claim file. All VELSIP claims are fully tracked to resolution with the current RMIS. ORIM interfaces with Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) per the Mandatory Insurer Reporting Requirements under Section 111 of the MMSEA using the current RMIS. ORIM submits approximately 220 claims annually. ORIM manually submits claims information to the Insurance Services Office, Claim Search (ISO) for indexing and any information returned is manually processed. ORIM does not create payments directly. Vouchers are printed from the RMIS and manually submitted to another DGS control agency which generates the checks. ORIM manually inputs billing from State and contract attorneys. iii.

Foster Care Liability Claims Program (FCLIP) provides coverage for foster-care parents for certain general liability claims arising out of certain activities relating to the care of foster-care children. ORIM administers the program on behalf of the California State Department of Social Services (CDSS). All FCLIP claims are fully tracked to resolution with the current RMIS. ORIM manually submits claims information to ISO for indexing and any information returned is manually processed. ORIM does not create payments directly. Vouchers are printed from the RMIS and manually submitted to another DGS control agency which generates the checks. ORIM manually inputs billing information from State and contract attorneys.

iv.

DGS General Liability Claims Program responds to all non-auto liability claims brought against DGS. All DGS general liability claims are tracked to resolution with the current RMIS. ORIM manually submits claims information to ISO for indexing and any information returned is manually processed. ORIM does not create payments directly. Vouchers are printed from the RMIS and manually submitted to another DGS control agency which generates the checks.

v.

DGS Return-to-Work (RTW) Program facilitates the early return to work of injured DGS employees. The RMIS is used solely to track claims and work status of injured employees whose claims are handled by a third party workers’ compensation claims administrator.

ORIM currently uses AON’s iVOS (iVOS) solution as its RMIS. The system is maintained “in house” at DGS. The database back end and web server front end are installed on DGS servers and managed by DGS IT staff. System access is completely internal to DGS and not available to the internet. The iVOS system security and user management is administrated by ORIM staff. Upgrades and system issues that require interaction with the vendor are resolved by allowing vendor to access the system through Virtual Private Networking (VPN).

b) Process The Minimum Qualifications and written submissions will be evaluated by committee. All scoring will be done on a consensus basis. In order for a Bidder’s cost proposal to be opened, Bidders must first meet the Minimum Qualifications. Should they pass the Minimum Qualifications; the written submission will be evaluated and scored. The Cost Proposals will then be opened. The appropriate score will be given to the cost proposal (see example below). The Bidder with the highest total points will be awarded the contract. c) Bidder Evaluation 1. Phase I: Minimum Qualifications – Pass/Fail The Bidder must submit the required information in the format as described in Attachment 5- Minimum Qualification Checklist. All of the information must be included. Missing or incomplete information will be cause for immediate rejection of the bid/proposal. If the Bidder passes this phase, the technical proposal will be evaluated and scored. As long as the Minimum Requirements are contained within the technical proposal, they need not be separately presented. 2. Phase II: Evaluation of the Written Submission (300 points) The technical proposal will be evaluated in accordance with Attachment 2-Written Proposal Evaluation Scoring Sheet. All technical proposals deemed responsive by the evaluation committee will have their cost proposals opened. Total points available for Phase II is 300 points or 75% of the total score 3. Phase III: Proposed Cost (100 Points) The bidder shall complete Attachment -6-COST PROPOSAL when submitting their cost proposal. The cost proposals will not be opened until all technical proposals are evaluated and scored. Total points available for Phase II is 100 points or 25% of the total score. 100 points is the total possible points that may be achieved/awarded for Phase III. The lowest cost proposal submitted will be awarded the full 100 points. The remaining cost proposals will be awarded cost points based on the cost proposal formula below Cost Proposal Formula: Lowest Bidder’s Cost = (factor) X maximum cost points = cost points for other bidders EXAMPLE: Lowest Cost Proposal =

$75,000

Other cost proposal = $100,000
