Frequently Asked Questions
What does awarding a SIS vendor mean? Awarding a contract to a vendor will allow districts to purchase the system at a pre-determined rate without going through their own RFP process. The RFP also requires the vendor to establish a Missouri SIS User Group which will function as a statewide advisory group for the SIS. The purpose of the User Group is to identify needs of participating districts specifically related to training and technical assistance and modifications needed for the SIS.
Are districts required to switch to the SIS vendor? No, the Department is not mandating that districts use the awarded system.
Is the Department paying for this system? No, there is no state funding for this system. Participating districts will issue purchase orders off the awarded contract.
Will there be a change in current MOSIS reporting? No. This could change if/when more districts are using the system, but for the short-term, districts will continue to upload MOSIS files as they are currently doing.
Will the Department continue to support other SIS vendors operating in the state? Yes, the Department will continue to support all vendors currently working with the state.
What is the length of the contract? One year plus four additional one-year periods.
