The Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) and the Council on Competitive Government (CCG) announce a new Digital Imaging Contract giving local governments, state agencies, and local co-ops the ability to image records and to host and manage documents online. The new contract includes multiple pre-approved vendors who provide services in three categories:
- Project-based, which are usually large, multi-year projects that may include services such as a needs assessment/analysis or image repository hosting;
- Flat rate, with consistent, cost-efficient, per-page-basis pricing; and
- Preservation, for small to large projects involving historical or fragile documents.
You can find information on contract documents, pricing, a user’s guide, a sample Statement of Work, as well as vendor websites and contact information, at the CCG website: http://ccg.state.tx.us/contracts/doc_image.php. If you have questions, please contact Nanette Pfiester, the TSLAC Contract Administrator, at (512) 463-5477 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
