After considering the queries, clarifications, recommendations and suggestions, the BAC4IGOV hereby decides to include, revise, amend, delete and/or adapt the following provisions:

ITEM NO. QUERY BAC4IGOV RESPONSE
1 May we change the definition of “similar in nature” from “software subscription and licenses” to “software subscription, licenses and services” because most software subscription contracts involve services also. Yes.
2 May we suggest that the similar single largest contract can be a part of a number of components of a single contract: Hardware acquisition and Software subscription, licenses and services The largest portion of the contract must be the software subscription, licenses and services with contract amount equivalent to at least 50% ABC of the project.
3 In reference to “Section 2.1.11.: Must include Smart Management Add-on for use with System Management Platform”. May we delete entire section because there is no need to use add-on with existing System management Platform. Yes. Please refer to attached Revised Technical Specifications as of 16 June 2016.
4 May we suggest to modify Sections 2.1.12.5. and 2.2.3.5. with the same entry: “Direct access to manufacturer’s network”. Manufacturer’s network is vague. For the purpose of catering to IT’s need to have access to manufacturer’s support resources, we recommend the entry to be changed to: “Subscription shall provide access to relevant software channels from the manufacturer that shall provide patches, upgrades, errata, security fixes and ISOs” Agree. Please refer to attached Revised Technical Specifications as of 16 June 2016.
5 May we know what you presently use as your PNKI OS and Application Platform? Details may be provided upon signing of NDA and upon approval of ICT Office.
6 May we know the Server Specifications that you presently use? Details may be provided upon signing of NDA and upon approval of ICT Office.
7 Please refer to Section 29.2 of Bid Data Sheet: 3.h. – List of documents to be submitted for Post Qualification, list of authorized support centers in the Philippines. May we recommend to delete list of support centers. Support/Service Centers are for purposes of HardwareRMA support.

Red Hat’s local presence is through resellers/partners like Questech Co., Inc., distributor through MSI-ECS and through its local sales and support team. Agree.
8 Please refer to Technical Specifications Section 2.2.1.6 JBoss Seam Framework, including java annotations to enhance POJOs, are including JBoss jBPM. The requirement is an Enterprise Application Platform, a BPM is a separate tool from an EAP, will there be a requirement for a BPM? If none, may we request that it be removed then. Agree. Please refer to attached Revised Technical Specifications as of 16 June 2016.
