New Energy Department RFI Seeks Commercial Input on Cloud HR Platform
The Department of Energy has posted a request for information to collect industry feedback on a potential cloud-based software-as-a-service solution that would merge its core human resources applications.
The department said a cloud migration would address mounting technical concerns such as freezes and dated interfaces and aid with avoiding data integrity issues by reducing manual data manipulation between systems.
According to the RFI, the goal is to acquire a commercial cloud platform with timekeeping, performance appraisal, training and recruitment functionality, potentially cutting down on expenses and streamlining operations with automation. The selected contractor would be responsible for data migration, business process configuration and integration development.
Feb. 8 is the deadline for responses, FCW reported Friday.
AvePoint’s Online Services cloud platform was sponsored by the Energy Department during the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program certification process, which was completed in 2021. The agency uses the solution to automate SharePoint and Microsoft Teams record management based on existing standards.
In 2020, the department entered into a five-year agreement with Google Cloud to secure work productivity tools that could support research and innovation efforts across the agency and its national laboratories. Google is expected to provide a full set of services that includes storage, data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, neural networks, graphical processing and software containerization.
