To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Wisconsin Open Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

1. All documents signed with procurement software or software to create and publish RFI, RFQ, RFP this agency uses or used in the past five years.

Additionally, if possible, please answer the following four questions:
a. What is the name of the procurement software you use (or the name of the software you use to create and publish RFI, RFQ, RFP)?
b. What is the annual cost for this software?
c. When did the most recent contract with the software provider begin?

If there are any fees required to fulfill this request, please let me know in advance of fulfilling my request.

Thank you,

Arie Bronshtein



In response to your FOIA request (attached), here is our response:

The City of Appleton has not executed any agreements or procured any software for the preparation and/or posting of RFI/RFQ/RFP documents in the past 5 years, or prior.

This should answer the additional questions 1.a. - 1.c. Question 1.d. : We do not use our ERP system to perform this function. The City occasionally manually uploads certain public works bid documents to our website, but this is a website maintenance function and does not use any stand-alone or peripheral software.

We trust this satisfies your request.

Jeff Fait, CPPB
Purchasing Manager
City of Appleton, WI
