Working with a vendor

Contact Digital Service
The first step is to contact Digital Service for a consultation. We’ll go over your goals, discuss your needs and provide direction and feedback. Some vendors may suit your needs better than others and our team is prepared to assist you in the selection process.

Scope of Work
The next step is to define the type of work you’re looking for in a scope of work document. The document should provide as much information as you can about what you’re looking for. Be sure to include:

  • Introduction and summary information
  • Project description
  • Goals & objectives
  • Expected timeline
  • Primary contacts
  • Specifications (websites included, required deliverables, explicit responsibilities)
  • Estimated budget

We will assist you in creating a scope of work for your project.

Contacting Vendors
A member of the Digital Service team will work with you to contact vendors that may be suitable for your needs.  Each vendor has their own unique process, but they all will want to review your scope of work and then schedule a meeting to discuss and provide appropriate estimates.

Evaluate and select your vendor
Based on your initial meetings and the vendor responses, we will assist in evaluating which company best meets the University's needs. There are many criteria to consider such as:

  • does the company provide the right services required to satisfy the scope of work;
  • does their body of previous work match the needs of your project;
  • their years of experience and references;
  • and, of course, how long and how much the vendor estimates.

Once project terms agreed to with the vendor, contact Procurement for help executing a Purchased Services Agreement(PSA). The PSA must be completed and approved before work begins on your project.

Keep Digital Service involved
After selecting your vendor, Digital Service will stay involved as much as possible during the process. Each vendor is required to coordinate with us when it comes to campus standards and processes. However, the more we stay in the loop as work progresses, the easier it will be to approve completed deliverables.

Requirements

While campus units are not required to select one of the vendors on the list, they are highly encouraged to do so. By choosing one of these vendors, you ensure work adheres to campus standards and significantly expedite your project’s timeline by eliminating the need to go through a formal RFP process with procurement.

If you opt-out of using the vendors, you will need to contact procurement to begin the normal RFP process. More information can be found on the Supply Chain website.

We are committed to helping you through this process. If you have any questions or feedback, please contact the Digital Service team for more information.
