Digital evidence training RFP: The Northeast chapter wants you!

Our Northeast chapter has issued a request for proposals! For Calendar Year 2011, the HTCIA Northeast Chapter seeks qualified vendors to provide 1-day, on-site training classes to the HTCIA membership.

Objectives and audience

Specifically, the chapter seeks training in tools and techniques that can be used to assist in identifying, collecting, analyzing and reporting on digital evidence. Training classes must be limited to no more than 8 hours in length, must be delivered within one working day, and must be offered in the NY/NJ area. Preference will be given for training in the following regions:

  • New York City metro area
  • White Plains, NY
  • Albany, NY
  • Buffalo, NY,
  • Princeton, NJ
  • Eatontown, NJ

The proposed training classes must support HTCIA’s mission, and must be open to both law enforcement and private industry representatives. The classes will improve our members’ ability to identify, acquire, analyze and report on digital evidence in support of their professional responsibilities to respond to an apparent high technology-related incident.

Budget, schedule and evaluation

No proposal for a single training class can exceed $2,500 in total costs to the chapter. (Proposals that include additional student tuition to cover a cost over $2,500 will be considered but are not preferred.) A vendor, however, may offer multiple training sessions in different locations, each of which can be priced separately. The training must be offered during the calendar year 2011.

The training proposals will be evaluated based upon the following factors:

  • Budget (20%)
  • Training content (20%)
  • Timeframe of delivery (10%)
  • Number of students to be trained in a session (10%)
  • Qualification of the applicant and of the personnel who will be providing the training (20%)
  • Other, including applicability to all HTCIA membership (20%)
