GIS Upgrade Request for Proposals

February 6, 2018 -- The Groundwater Management Board is issuing a Request for Proposals to initiate and complete a cloud-based system upgrade to the Wellhead Protection Viewer. Interested parties must reply to this RFP no later than 5:00 PM EST on February 26, 2018. Submittals received after this day and time will not be accepted.

Groundwater Management Board (GMB) –The GMB was established in 1983 as a result of the 208 Water Quality Planning. The Board and its partner organization, the Groundwater Technical Advisory Council (GTAC), provide a forum for coordination of groundwater matters in the Tri-County region of Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham counties, reviewing and commenting on land use and/or water development projects that have potential to significantly impact groundwater resources in the region.

Wellhead Protection Viewer (WPV) – The WPV is a map-centric GIS database that is currently operated offline with ArcReader versions 9.3.1 or 10.0. The Viewer’s layers include, but are not limited to, Contaminant Source Inventory Locations, Water Wells, Time of Travel Areas, and other such data, that area planners rely on when making development decisions that may affect regional groundwater resources.

Wellhead Protection Viewer Upgrade Specification – The GMB is seeking a modern, streamlined, cloud-based upgrade to the Wellhead Protection Viewer. All data, layers, and hyperlinks from the offline Viewer must be included in the upgrade, including functionality to continue demonstrating the relationship between the various layers in a map-centric fashion, such as Contaminant Source Locations, Water Wells, and Time of Travel Areas, and all other layers. The upgrade must permit use and accessibility of the Viewer on a desktop computer, laptop computer, tablet, and mobile phone, and include login username and password security requirements for all authorized users.

A maintenance plan for all data will be developed at a later date and is not included in this Request for Proposals.
