CATS+ Agency Service Center

September 14, 2017: A revised CATS+ Template is available (version 4.01). Use of the new template is required starting no later than September 28, 2017. See Guidance For Writing a TORFP and CATS+ TORFP Review Policy for more details.

The CATS+ master contract provides for two types of task order solicitations.  Task Order Request for Proposals (TORFP) are for soliciting services within one of the 17 Functional Areas (FA) defined in the Master Contract.  The Request for Resume (RFR) process is for acquiring dedicated resources within one FA to supplement State staff on a temporary, limited basis.  Click the links below for the appropriate TORFP and RFR guidance and tools.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

​​​​Secondary co​​mpetition documents, such as a TORFP or RFR, will be issued to Master Contractors as a single functional area only. Scope of a TORFP may cross over into more than one functional area. However, the State will make a determination of the most appropriate functional area, prior to release of the TORFP/RFR.
