    1.1 Scope The Texas A&M University System (TAMUS or A&M System) is seeking proposals to select a single RESPONDENT to provide Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) services for the Workday Human Capital Management (HCM) and Payroll project as described in Section 2. It is the intent of TAMUS to establish an agreement with a qualified company for the requirements listed. By submitting responses, each RESPONDENT (also referred to herein as “Vendor”) certifies that it understands this RFP and has full knowledge of the scope, nature, quality, and quantity of the work to be performed, the detailed requirements of the services to be provided, and the conditions under which the services are to be performed. Each RESPONDENT also certifies that it understands that all costs relating to preparing and responding to this RFP will be the sole responsibility of the RESPONDENT.

    1.2 Project Goals and Objectives The goals of the HCM Project are to:

    • Implement a Workday HCM/Payroll system that meets the critical business requirements of TAMUS members by eliminating outdated and redundant systems, maximizing the efficiency of managing system resources, enhancing security and ensuring transparency;

    • Successfully implement to all System Members on time and within budget; • Implement the HCM system in a manner that supports System-wide standardization of data and business

    processes; and • Implement the HCM system in a manner that is cost-effective to maintain.

    A System Integrator will be selected as an implementation partner to help accomplish the above goals. This RFP is issued to solicit responses for the provision of the IV&V services for the HCM Project. The successful RESPONDENT for these IV&V services will not have any other involvement in the HCM Project other than the IV&V services described herein.

    In addition to the scope discussed in this RFP, RESPONDENTs should review the contents of the Human Capital Management Implementation Services RFP to understand the scope of work being asked of the System Integrator.
