The state’s IT contingent labor contract (ITCL) with Computer Aid, Inc. (CAI) is available to all public bodies to obtain IT contract labor. CAI supports the commonwealth by managing the engagement life cycle process for customers desiring to engage IT resources to support staff augmentation, fixed price projects and service agreements for operations and maintenance needs.
Through the ITCL program, VITA and CAI have been successful in providing high quality services to state agencies. CAI leverages a large subcontractor network to attract strong IT candidates from across the state. The ITCL recruitment processes reduce the time to market for obtaining IT labor or consulting services. Competition and a job rate card that is aligned with the market allow customers to make informed decisions to manage IT labor costs.
Small, woman and minority-owned (SWaM) business IT suppliers make up 40 percent of CAI’s subcontractor network and garner 50 percent of staff augmentation spend when requisitions are competed. As a result, this contract is also an enabler for state agencies to meet SWaM spend objectives set by the governor.
Customers are encouraged to be diligent when working the recruitment process as many contractors currently enjoy the position of possibly having multiple job offers from which to choose due to the current low unemployment rates in both the state and locally. Customers will need to plan ahead and be prepared to respond quickly, follow through on interviews and the decision making process in order to engage the resources desired.
Please contact your CAI account manager or the VITA program manager, Sonia Hicks, with any questions related to the ITCL program.
