Global Data Consultants, LLC is an Approved Vendor Under Pennsylvania’s Invitation to Qualify (ITQ) Process

Under the ITQ process, GDC is pre-qualified to provide IT services to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Chambersburg, Pennsylvania — January 6, 2005

Invitation to Qualify Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

Global Data Consultants, LLC (GDC), a leading provider of network and IT related services in the local and surrounding areas since 1995, has been approved under the state of Pennsylvania’s Invitation to Qualify (ITQ) process in the Master Information Technologies (IT) Service Area.

About the ITQ Process

Under the ITQ process, vendors become pre-qualified to provide IT services to the state. Agencies in need of an IT service issue a “Request for Quotation” (RFQ) to any pre-qualified vendor who has been approved in the required service category. The ITQ process is more efficient than the traditional request-for-proposal (RFP) process, which is time-consuming and promotes legal challenges by vendors that were not awarded contracts. Former Governor Tom Ridge wanted a streamlined procurement process to improve state government productivity and save time and money. Under his direction, the Pennsylvania Office of Administration and Department of General Services implemented the ITQ process. For more information, visit the PA Invitation to Qualify website.
