IMPO Issues RFI related to IRTIP Software
The Indianapolis MPO has issued a Request for Information (RFI) relating to the development of a project management and funding database capable of expansion and customization for the Indianapolis Regional Transportation Improvement Program (IRTIP). The IRTIP is the program listing of all federal and non-federal transportation funds administered by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Planning Organization (IMPO) within Central Indiana.
Since 2011, the Indianapolis MPO has been using a web-based database Software as a Service (SaaS) solution referred to as MiTIP (https://mitip.indympo.org/), to store and manage IRTIP data. This SaaS assists the IMPO develop the IRTIP (updated every two years) as well as track project funding and development from application to completion in an easy to use and view format. The IMPO’s SaaS represents a single repository for all project data and provides an ease of data sharing with local public agencies and the public.
The Indianapolis MPO has issued the Request for Information to acquire information on suggested approaches to continue MiTIP either through an existing SaaS or through the development of a new project management database specific to the IRTIP’s needs. The solution should be robust, but easy to use for a variety of user levels by the IMPO, local public agencies, and the general public. It should be customizable for immediate and long-term needs.
