A-2. INTRODUCTION: Please provide not to exceed 3 pages in length the Bidder's understanding of the request for response, the requirements of the work the firm is bidding on, the work to be performed and bid upon, and provide an overview summary of the Bidders' qualifications and experience to perform the work requested. Please reference if the Bidder is, or will intend to subcontract with or use resources from small, minority or women business owned entities.

Bidder’s Introduction:

DRG is proposing services to assist the Commonwealth in the following areas:

  1. Consulting services to identify and scope the requirements for PCI compliance as it relates to the Commonwealth, its agencies, merchants and services providers;

  2. Scanning services to meet the PCI scan requirements for those same entities, including scheduling, analysis of remediation, false positive reporting, and reporting of compliance to both a centralized Commonwealth entity as well as required reporting to Acquirer Banks and/or Card Brands (including AMEX and Discover).

  3. Education and training of all stakeholders in completion of the Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ).

  4. Review and determination of compliance of the SAQ submitted by each entity.

  5. Online access, monitoring and reporting on a centralized basis for all entities related to the SAQ and scan status.

See B-1 Firm Profile for an overview summary of DRG’s qualifications and experience to perform PCI and related security compliance and consulting service.

DRG is willing to, but at this time, does not intend to subcontract with or use resources from a small, minority or women business owned entity located in the Commonwealth of Mass.

A.3 Bidders are not authorized to condition execution of a contract with the Commonwealth upon the Commonwealth’s execution of a Bidder contract form, or require that other Bidder Terms and Conditions automatically apply to this contract. Any additional terms and conditions that the Bidder seeks to apply to this Contract must be specified below.


No additional terms and/or conditions will be required by Bidder (DRG) in order to execute a contract with the Commonwealth

A.4 It is expected that any legal review of the required contract forms and attachments will be done prior to submission of the RFR Response and that objections to any language in the RFR, RFR Response or attachments will not be raised after selection and during contract negotiations. Therefore, if the Bidder has any questions related to the interpretation of any language in the required forms or Attachments, these questions must be identified as part of the on-line forum for this RFR and may not be raised at a later date. Any issues or concerns with the language in the Contract forms or Attachments, or proposed additions or clarifications must be identified below, which will be evaluated as part of the selection process, and may not be raised after selection.

ANSWER: Our questions were not about the legal contractual forms but there were numerous questions related to the scope of work especially as it relates to the scan requirements and the anticipated process for SAQ education and agency report reviews. We anticipate such questions will be clarified in follow-up discussions with the Commonwealth.
