Title

BACKGROUND

This action does not encumber funds; the purpose of a cooperative purchasing agreement is to establish firm pricing for services, for a specific term, which are ordered on an as needed basis according to annual budgetary appropriations.

This cooperative purchasing agreement will provide for the purchase of an identity and access management, single sign-on platform for the Department of Information and Technology Services. This platform will allow for centralized identity and access management for users, including multi-step authentications for City system access. This platform is required to maintain compliance with risk management and cyber insurance. Additionally, the platform will maintain compliance with Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, Criminal Justice Information System, and Payment Card Industry Standards.
