State of Colorado Homeless Management State of Colorado Homeless Management Information System's (HMIS) RFP Information:
The Colorado State Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) supports the Metro Denver Homeless Initiative, Pikes Peak, and Balance of State Continuums of Care (CoC) for the state of Colorado. Over 1300 users across homeless service providers use HMIS to collect information about the homeless and at-risk population to improve client’s access to services, to analyze and report on system/client level progress and to gauge the success of the homeless provider system. Although the state grew capacity and reliance on HMIS data when we implemented the current system in 2011, the data needs of our state to address the problem of homelessness have continued to grow over the past few years.
In light of programmatic and funding opportunities at the local and national level, as well as the evolution of technology over the last 6 years, the COCs believe that it is now time to revisit and reevaluate our current software needs. The objective of this request for proposals (RFP) is to secure web-based Software as a Service (SaaS) system for our HMIS. The implementation is statewide and will support all 3 COCs. Questions should be submitted electronically and will be received through April 14th.
