B–Three Gains Approval as Pennsylvania ITQ Vendor

July 15, 2009

Pittsburgh, PA — Michael Walton, President of B–Three Solutions, today announced that the company had gained approval as a pre–qualified vendor under Pennsylvania’s Invitation to Qualify (ITQ) program.

The ITQ program is a significant enhancement to the commonwealth’s procurement practices. Vendors apply to be pre-qualified by the state to provide specific categories of Information Technology services. Commonwealth agencies can then secure IT services from these pre-qualified vendors without going through an RFP process.

B–Three Solutions applied in the service categories of Software Development and Software Maintenance, and was approved in both categories.

For each service category, an applicant must submit descriptions and client references for three projects. The projects submitted by B–Three included:

• Mobile Workforce Solution for Major Metropolitan Police Department
• Image Repository for Insurance Documents
• Maintenance Upgrade for Crime Data Plotting Application

Concerning B–Three’s successful application to the ITQ program, Walton stated: “In order to gain pre–qualified status, we had to secure favorable evaluations from state officials and a number of clients. The ITQ approval represents a vote of confidence in our work.”

After securing the ITQ approval in the Software Development and Software Maintenance categories, B–Three recently submitted an application to add another category: Modified Off–the–Shelf Software Services. That application is currently pending.
