IT consulting services program

Hennepin County maintains a roster of qualified IT professional firms to provide consulting services. Small, minority-owned, and women-owned businesses are highly encouraged to apply.

Open all

When an IT consulting need arises, we request offers from the firms on the roster. Firms with a well-qualified candidate may submit an offer to be considered for the engagement.

Program goals

  • Elevate competition by increasing participating firms
  • Maintain diversity with respect to size and targeted small business status
  • Expedite the process of soliciting and engaging well-qualified consultants

Program details

  • Applications to get on the roster are taken annually in the fall
  • Each firm is required to sign a principal agreement with the legal terms before being added to the roster
  • Firms already on the roster do not have to re-apply unless their contract is expiring
  • Only firms on the roster can compete for program engagements
  • Joining the program is not a guarantee of work

Small business inclusion

We strive for diversity and inclusion in contracting. We recognize small, minority-owned, and women-owned businesses certified by Central (CERT) Certification program. See how we reduce disparities through contracting.

If you are not currently on the roster or your current contract is expiring, follow these steps:

  1. Register in Supplier Portal help – make sure to select the procurement category code 918-71.
  2. Submit response in Supplier Portal – Request for Qualifications (RFQ) is posted annually each fall
  3. Read the terms and conditions and sign the Principal agreement (PDF).

To see who is already in the program, review the list in Current program roster section.
