Library Services Platform Notice of Intent to Award

Today, the CCC Technology Center posted a Notice of Intent to Award related to the Library Services Platform (LSP) RFP, identifying the proposal submitted by the Ex Libris Group as the one “most advantageous to the project.” The Alma/Primo LSP is included in that proposal.

NEXT STEPS: The Butte-Glenn Community College District Board needs to approve the recommendation, after which contract negotiations with Ex Libris Group may begin.

Specific details related to timelines, trainings, implementation schedules, etc., will follow successful completion of contract negotiations.

Members of the LSP Procurement and Selection Committee are bound by a strict non-disclosure agreement related to the details of the selection process. Please direct any questions about the Intent to Award to Library Service Platform Program Manager Amy Beadle at the CCC Technology Center,
