Vendor & Technology Evaluation

ITS recognizes that our service offerings may not meet all of the diverse technology needs of every Weill Cornell Medicine department. We want to support business units in selecting the best technical solutions to meet their requirements in a manner that will help ensure the solution's supportability within our environment. Particular attention must be paid to our security standards (HIPAA, PCI, etc.) as well as compatibility and connectivity with core WCM systems.

The ITS/POIS Vendor Questionnaire and Request for Proposal (RFP) templates have been designed to help with this selection process.
