UI Modernization Project Update

November 2020


This communication is part of our ongoing commitment to keep you informed of the progress of our agency’s UI Modernization Project. The goal of our UI Modernization Project is to replace the computer systems supporting receipt of UI taxes and payment of UI benefits, and transform the business processes to take advantage of opportunities and benefits available through new system capabilities.(Please open in Chrome or Firefox if you're having trouble seeing this message.) 

UI Solution update

The UI solution RFP Evaluation Team has nearly completed the additional activities outlined in the addendum released mid-October.  

  • The activities included a written evaluation of experiences from states that have recently or will soon deploy a system similar to what OED desires with the finalists, as well as additional documentation from each of the vendors describing how their solution is the actual best fitand follow-up discussions.
  • Once the highest ranking Proposer is determined (by score) DAS will issue a new Notice of Intent to Award (NITA) and the contract negotiations team will begin final negotiations.

Learn more about the NITA and other FAQs about Modernization.
