Other InformationThe Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education (CMBE), 2nd largest school district in both North and South Carolina and in the top 20 largest in the country, provides K-12 instruction to approximately 143,973 students. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education employs approximately 18,000 full and part-time regular employees in addition to a large number of temporary and substitute employees. It is the intent of this request for proposal to seek qualified vendors for a centralized, web-based library management system from leaders in the school market. The preference is to have a single vendor for the purchase of software, data conversion, data enhancements, installation, training, ongoing technical support, and maintenance of the library management solution. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools’ preferred system includes an individualized online public access search portal with 21st century search features and functionality for students and staff at 160 locations. The provider should offer increased support for system administrator functions. The system will offer authority maintenance, cataloging, circulation, inventory, and reporting tools that are easy to use at the best price and feature level as indicated in the selection criteria. The successful vendor will be able to grow with the school district as new schools are added. The contract awarded will be for one year with options to renew over five years.
