How to Place a DBITS Order with Capgemini

DBITS Statement of Work (SOW) values may not exceed $5 million for state agencies or $10 million for non-state agency entities or higher education institutions. Government customers must issue a SOW consistent with the terms and conditions of the DIR DBITS contract. Vendors must respond to the issued SOW to be awarded a purchase order. Vendors can only respond to a SOW that they have been awarded under the DIR DBITS contract. The following process outlines the step-by-step process for issuing a purchase order from the DIR DBITS contract:

  • A government customer identifies a need for a deliverables-based service from one of the DBITS service categories.
  • The customer creates a SOW, as provided in Appendix C, for release to vendors. The SOW will describe the deliverables, acceptance criteria and service levels. An authorized customer representative must sign the SOW.
  • The customer sends the SOW to the Capgemini contact.
  • Capgemini will submit a response to the customer with a fixed price based on deliverables.
  • Once Capgemini is selected, the customer issues a purchase order to Capgemini referencing the contract number. Once the purchase order has been accepted, the project can commence.
