1. OVERVIEW 1.1 Introduction

The Port of Portland is soliciting proposals from experienced firms and individuals capable of providing Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions. The successful proposer shall provide and implement (on-premise or hosted), a Mobile Device Management Solution that supports Port standard devices and employee-provided devices in a way that is cost effective and secure.

1.2 Background

The Port of Portland (Port) is a regional public agency whose mission is to enhance the region’s economy and quality of life by providing efficient cargo and air passenger access to national and global markets. The Port owns and operates Portland International Airport (PDX) and two general aviation airports (Hillsboro and Troutdale). It owns four marine terminals and it oversees five industrial/business parks. The Port also owns and operates the dredge Oregon to help maintain the shipping channel on the lower Columbia River.

The Port employs approximately 800 employees, all of which are located in the Headquarters building adjacent to the airport, within the airport terminal, or at other locations in the Portland metro area based on the operational functions those employees support.

The Port’s Information Technology (IT) Department is responsible for all computer, information systems, and telecommunications services and equipment. As such, the Port provides employees with mobile computing devices and supports a "bring your own device policy” (BYOD) by partially funding monthly service plans for approved employee-owned devices.

1.2.1 Current Environment - Devices

The Port’s current technology environment is described on Exhibit B - Technology Environment. Port-provided equipment - includes approximately 173 BlackBerry devices, managed through the Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES); 135 cell phones; 150 Windows laptops; 27 iPads; and 13 Windows tablets. Windows mobile devices include a number of mobile device terminals (MDTs) installed in vehicles that support Police, Fire, and other airport operational functions.

Employee-owned equipment – with management approval, eligible employee devices can be synchronized to the Port’s data in lieu of using a Port-provided device. Current mix is approximately 186 personal devices Port policy includes a provision for wiping the device if the employee leaves the Port or if the device is reported as lost or stolen.

Approximately 227 devices (combined total of Port-provided and employee-owned) are currently connected via ActiveSync - 140 iPhones, 32 iPads, and 52 Android devices, and 3 Windows phones.

1.2.2 Current Environment – Connectivity

Port business areas include a wide variety and increasing need for mobile solutions. Coverage areas span not only the office buildings and airport terminal, but also the airfield, marine terminals, and other facilities. Examples include Maintenance inventory staff, construction staff accessing Port data through tablets, and specialized needs for Police and Fire mobile vehicle equipment. For Police and Fire MDTs, the NetMotion solution has been implemented to preserve connectivity as vehicles move between “coverage areas”.

While the BlackBerry devices have served the Port’s needs for a number of years, recognizing the decline in market share and the increasing potential for other devices to support business needs, the Port plans to develop new standards for Port-issued devices. The BYOD program has reaped benefits for employees but with administrative overhead in terms of support, in contrast with the provisioning and management features historically present in the BES. The iPad and iPhone devices that are shared among workgroups,


particularly those with 24-hour staffing rotations, present significant challenges for configuration and ongoing management. Configuration is currently an overly complex process that lacks automation and is hampered by the default “consumer-centric” versus the “business-centric” nature of the iOS operating system. Configuration is accomplished using the core OS functionality which lacks the ability to remotely manage and monitor the devices.

Android device support is also limited and is currently not offered as a Port-issued mobile device platform. Employees are required to use NitroDesk’s “Touchdown” application for e-mail and calendar synchronization which provides the security of Port data encryption at the application level, but without any current method of managing the configuration of the application or the underlying Android operating system. Given the open source and fractured nature of the Android operating system, the Port needs to be able to manage these devices more effectively and securely before extending their functionality.

1.3 Statement of Work

The project scope includes the purchase, implementation, training for provisioning and system administration, and ongoing support. The solution should enable remote device management, provisioning, data synchronization, and secure management of corporate data. In addition, the solution must manage both corporate and employee-owned devices, which will require the ability to differentiate management configurations and segregate personal and corporate data.

Timeline for the project is a 30-day product evaluation / trial, to begin in July followed by an estimated 2-3 months for system implementation, to conclude in October 2014. It is envisioned that the 2-30-day trial will be performed under a form substantially similar to the Port Non-disclosure

Detailed requirements for the MDM solution are included in Exhibit C - System Requirements Checklist. This Exhibit must be completed and submitted as part of the proposal.

1.4 Security Requirements.

The successful proposer will be required to comply with all applicable security requirements for the premises, as more fully described in the Software Implementation Contract included in Exhibit E

Sample Contracts. Proposers are encouraged to obtain and thoroughly review applicable security requirements before submitting a proposal.



2.1.1 Evaluation. Proposals will be evaluated by a Port evaluation team. The evaluation will be in accordance with Section 3.2.2, Required Submissions and Evaluation Criteria, and may include requests by the team for additional information, oral discussions, site visits, and inquiries into the experience and responsibility of the proposer.

2.1.2 Obligation to Award. The issuance of this RFP, and the receipt and evaluation of proposals does not obligate the Port to award a contract. The Port will not pay any costs incurred in responding to this RFP. The Port may cancel this RFP or reject any or all proposals in accordance with ORS 279B.100.

2.1.3 Commencement of Work. The successful proposer may not commence work until receipt of a fully executed contract.

2.1.4 Questions. All questions relating to this RFP must be placed through the Port’s online

bidding system at the Port’s website www.portofportland.com through the Business Opportunities vendor portal. Questions received fewer than five (5) business days prior to the deadline for receipt of proposals may not be considered.

2.2 Pre-Proposal Interpretation of Contract Documents 2.2.1 Changes to RFP The Port reserves the right to make changes to the RFP. Changes will be made by written addendum which will be issued to all prospective proposers on the Port’s list of RFP holders. Prospective proposers may request or suggest any change to the RFP by submitting a written request. The request shall specify the provision of the RFP in question, and contain an explanation for the requested change. The request must be submitted at least five (5) calendar days prior to the date set for receipt of proposals. The evaluation team will evaluate all requests submitted, but reserves the right to determine whether to accept the requested change.

2.2.2 Amend or Withdraw Proposal. A proposer may amend or withdraw its proposal any time prior to the time and date established for submission of proposals.

2.3 Intergovernmental Cooperative Purchasing

The proposer submitting this proposal may agree to extend identical prices and services under the same terms and conditions to all public purchasing contracting agencies as defined in ORS 279A.200(1)(h). Quantities stated in this proposal reflect the Port’s usage only. Each participating agency will execute its own contract for its requirements. Any proposer, by written notification included with its proposal, may decline to extend the prices and terms of this proposal to any and/or all other public agencies.

2.4 Public Disclosure of Proposals

2.4.1 Any information provided to the Port pursuant to this RFP is subject to public disclosure pursuant to Oregon’s public records laws (ORS 192.410 to 192.505).

2.4.2 The general requirement for public disclosure is subject to a number of exemptions. Each page containing information deemed by the proposer to remain exempt from public disclosure after proposals have been evaluated (e.g., pages containing trade secret, economic development information, etc.) should be plainly marked. A general statement


that all or certain parts of the proposal are exempt from public disclosure will not be effective unless each page on which those parts appear has been marked in accordance with this section.

2.4.3 The fact that a proposer marks certain information as exempt from disclosure does not mean that the information is necessarily exempt. The Port will make an independent determination regarding exemptions applicable to information that has been properly marked. Information that has not been properly marked may be disclosed in response to a public records request. When exempt information is mixed with nonexempt information, the nonexempt information must be disclosed. The Port will redact pages that include both exempt and nonexempt information to allow disclosure of the nonexempt information.

2.4.4 Unless expressly provided otherwise in this RFP or in a separate communication, the Port does not agree to withhold from public disclosure any information submitted in confidence by a proposer unless the information is otherwise exempt under Oregon law. The Port considers proposals submitted in response to this RFP to be submitted in confidence only until the Port’s evaluation is complete, and agrees not to disclose proposals until the Port has completed its evaluation of all proposals and publicly announced the results.
