NOTICE OF INTENT TO AWARD SOLE SOURCE

Solicitation #: SSP 308180
Agency: Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority
(CapMetro) Procurement Department

 

Introduction:

Capital Metro intends to solicit and award a sole source contract to Swiftly System, to provide an Android tablet-based mobile hosted application with an easy-to-use interface, to be used by operators to meet On Time Performance (OTP) goals.  The mobile application will be based on the application piloted by the current 20 vehicles and 3 test/spare tablets. To expand to the entire CapMetro fixed route fleet, a new contract will support a total of 560 tablets including for 500 vehicles and 60 training/test/spare tablets.

Swiftly is the developer and the sole solution provider for the CapMetro GTFS and on time performance system used for operation of the fixed route fleet. There are currently 23 vehicles with the Swiftly on time performance tablet software and this will expand the system to the entire fixed route fleet. There are no third-party developers since it is a proprietary system and not open for other vendors to provider services on top of Swiftly’s systems. Swiftly is the only authorized provider to expand the number of vehicles to the entire CapMetro fixed route fleet.

This will be a fixed price contract.
