Purpose:

The University of Houston Purchasing Department provides procurement services for the University of Houston and the University of Houston System Administration, and provides procurement services for large dollar transactions (one million and up) for the University of Houston Clear Lake, University of Houston Downtown, and University of Houston Victoria. In addition, all campuses use a shared financial system. The University invites you to submit a proposal to conduct a review and consulting services of procurement functions for the University of Houston with minimal disruption of business operations. Review will focus on identification of best business practices and opportunities for improvement in the areas of automation, leveraging cooperative agreements, procurement procedures, procurement training, staffing, and compensation as detailed in Section 6.2 Services to be Performed.

Eligible Applicants:

Consulting firms with knowledge and experience in the procurement functions and services that relate to a State of Texas university.

Services to be performed including assisting the University of Houston System with the following:

- Conduct a review of procurement functions for the University of Houston, minimal disruption of business operations. Review will focus on identification of best business practices and opportunities for improvement in the areas of automation, leveraging cooperative agreements, procurement procedures, procurement training, and staffing as detailed in the following scope requirements.

- Review automation potential including maximization of use of current PeopleSoft system and identification of additional modules or external systems to manage the procurement and purchasing cycle.

- Review purchasing department internal processes for efficiency and effectiveness including: documentation and approvals of formal and informal procurements, effectiveness of standard forms, vendor protest procedures, scoring matrices, and identification of opportunities for decentralization and/or centralization.

- Review institutional proposal review processes, including identification of potential improvements for training provided to selection committees, standard timelines for the evaluation and review process, and guidelines for short-list interviews.

- Identify standard or common training provided by purchasing departments and compare to current training provided, review website for functionality, and recommend improvements.

- Identify oversight necessary for procurement managed by other campus divisions.

- Review staffing levels compared to workload as defined by the volume and complexity of formal and informal procurement, and determine whether procurement specialists for capital construction or other areas could be beneficial.

- Review purchasing department job descriptions, responsibilities, and salaries to determine whether job descriptions are commensurate with actual responsibilities, and whether salaries are commensurate with responsibilities.

Finding by Chief Executive Officer, Renu Khator:

After reviewing and discussing this matter with the staff, a procurement consultant is needed to ensure that the Procurement System obtains the most cost effective internal processes and procedures for efficiency and effectiveness that are related to best business practices along with reviewing staffing and compensation levels in order to meet state requirements. The System believes that using a third-party consultant, who has provided similar services for large and complex organizations similar in context and size to the University of Houston System, will provide the greatest benefit. The expertise needed for this consultation is complex and requires a comprehensive knowledge of the procurement system that apply to State of Texas universities. Thus, it is necessary for the System to engage a consultant to provide these services.

Review and Award Criteria:

All proposals will be evaluated by appointed representatives of the University in accordance with the following procedures:

1. Purchasing will receive and review each RFP proposal to ensure it meets the requirements of the RFP. Qualified proposals will be given to the selection committee.

2. Each member of the selection committee will independently evaluate the qualified proposals according to the criteria in section IX of the RFP, except for price, and send their evaluations to Purchasing. Price will be evaluated by the Project Manager.

3. Purchasing will combine the committee's scores to determine which proposal received the highest combined score.

4. Purchasing will notify the respondent with the highest score that the University intends to contract with them.
