Request for Proposals: Forensic Science Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS)

January 31, 2022 @ 3:00 pm

Solicitation #: JD-P22-1213

“The Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ), on behalf of the Division of Forensic Sciences (DFS) is soliciting proposals for a forensic science Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) that will support the entire lifecycle of a forensic case management, property and evidence handling software.

DFS prefers a COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) software that is highly configurable to meet DFS needs but still offers the advantage of automated and streamlined procedures for standardizing the application as well as for rolling out any product fixes, updates, upgrades or new releases to current versions. DFS prefers a solution for which the owner/developer has an established road map for the continuous improvement through updates, upgrades, major and minor releases of the software.

The solution must support the following forensic science disciplines: Controlled Substances, Toxicology, Trace Evidence, Crime Scene, Latent Prints/Footwear, Imaging, and Firearms/Toolmarks.

The contract contemplated includes but is not limited to: the provision of applicable licenses, implementation and training services, service level agreement for maintenance and support, data conversion, integrations with applicable DFS programs, configuration, limited customization, and escrow services.

The selected Contractor must be an established prime supplier of a forensic science LIMS software system. The Proposer must have implemented the proposed solution in at least three state or public forensic laboratories of similar size and complexity to that of DFS laboratories. The implementations must be in live production for a minimum of five (5) years.”

Due date: 31 January 2022, 3:00 p.m. CST
