North Highland Wins DBITs Contracts for the State of Texas

November 16, 2017

North Highland has been selected by the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) to provide Deliverables-Based Information Technology Services (DBITS) to clients in the State of Texas and across the country. These DBITS contracts provide a resourceful way to contract for services with North Highland on deliverables-based, IT projects that improve efficiency of IT divisions and effectiveness of IT tools and methodologies used. They are designed to provide shorter lead times in procuring and contracting work, along with reduced costs and flexibility to meet customer needs for state and local government agencies and vendors in Texas.

This contract allows North Highland to be pre-qualified for select engagements, within the four categories the firm was awarded. These project categories include:

  • Business Intelligence and Data Warehouse (e.g., data governance, data cleansing, data mart development and support; integration with business intelligence tools and/or systems; training and knowledge transfer; etc.)
  • IT Assessments and Planning (e.g., IT assessments, including enterprise architecture and cloud assessments; IT strategy development; skills and abilities (KSAs) assessments; bandwidth assessments, etc.)
  • IT Project Management (e.g., utilizing customer tools and processes, off-the-shelf tools and North Highland’s own proprietary tools and processes to manage a project for a customer)
  • IT Procurement Assistance (e.g., specification development, Statement of Work (SOW) development and RFO/RFP development for IT products and services)

This esteemed award positions North Highland to more easily help Texas customers solve their complex IT problems with a quick and easy way to contract with the firm; however, DBITS can also be used outside of Texas, as customers can now send future solicitations directly to North Highland.

We welcome the opportunity to do business with all Texas state and local agencies as well as higher education institutions and are excited about this award from the DIR.
