HP TRIM Support Services
Benton PUD
Kennewick, WA


Benton PUD, also referred to as the “District”, is a publicly owned distribution electric utility, located in Kennewick, Washington. The District intends contract for ongoing support for our HP TRIM application.

After responses to this RFP are received, Benton PUD (the District) will evaluate and award a contract to the response that best fits its needs as determined by the selection criteria.

In order to assure the HP TRIM Professional Services Contract is compatible with the needs of the Benton PUD; this RFP will employ competitive negotiation as outlined in RCW 39.04.270.

The District will consider all proposals and choose the best solution to meet the objectives of the District.  The District reserves the right to reject any part of any proposal and to select from multiple proposals that best meet the objectives.


The District is running HP TRIM version 7.12.  The application is running on Oracle version with the application server being Windows Server 2008R2. The document store currently contains approximately 370,000 documents.

Project Scope and Deliverables

The District currently has an Applications Analyst that provides first-level support for the end users of the application.  The intent of this contract is to provide ad hoc remote technical support, staff augmentation during planned absences, technical troubleshooting and assistance with future upgrades. 

Due to the broad nature of assistance that may be required, the District will be looking for a vendor that has extensive TRIM and/or HP Records Manager experience.

The District is in need of strong technical expertise for this system; therefore response time and issue resolution are paramount.  It is the desire of the District to work with one primary contact to ensure familiarity with its system.  It is also expected that the chosen vendor can respond to, and assign a resource to assist with District issues within 24 hours of the notification that there is an issue.  It is not expected that issues be resolved within the 24 hour window.  There may be times where requests may be more urgent, i.e. system down.  Vendors need to include in their response how these situations will be addressed.  Chosen vendor will need to provide support during normal working hours for Benton PUD – 8:00am to 5:00pm PST.  Occasionally support may be required outside of these hours to lessen operations impact to the District, and will be pre-arranged on a per project basis with the chosen vendor.

RFP proposals are due by November 5, 2014.

Questions should be directed to via email to Michelle Ochweri, Manager of Contracts and Purchasing, at cp@bentonpud.org.

RFI NO. #14-18-15

Integrated Utility Solution
Benton PUD
Kennewick, WA

Posted: 10/08/2014 

Public Utility District No. 1 of Benton County, also referred to as ”the District”, is seeking information from vendors that provide a set of fully integrated applications that allow for a seamless flow of information between them.  Solutions should have functionality that fully addresses all of the business needs of an electric utility including:  Customer Care and Billing, Accounting, Asset Management, Work Order Management, Human Resources Management, Time & Labor, Payroll, Engineering and Operations.  In addition to the software, implementation support to include data conversion and training will be required. 

The review of the responses will be done in two parts.  We will first review each response against our functional needs and review the performance of the company in our industry, and then select a list of vendors to investigate further.  Vendors that make it to the second step of the process will be invited to provide an onsite demonstration of their proposed solution.  The demonstration will need to include functionality for every requirement outlined in the requirements section along with a technical review of the architecture that is required for the system to run; therefore vendors should anticipate a multi-day demonstration if necessary. 

RFI Overview

The requirements being reviewed as part of this RFI are parts of the software currently in use or on the District’s strategic roadmap for the following functions:


  • Customer Information and Utility Billing
  • Customer Web Portal
  • Mobile Capabilities
  • Prepay Services
  • Payment Kiosks
  • Bill Production and Mailing
  • Accounting/Financial Reporting
  • Document Management
  • HR/Payroll
  • Staking
  • Mapping
  • Work Order Management
  • Outage Management
  • Fleet Management
  • Maintenance Management

In addition to the software, the District requires conversion of data from our existing systems, integration with other business systems to the level currently in production, end-user and administrative training and comprehensive startup support to successfully migrate to the new system without interruption to routine business operations or degradation of service to our customers.

For your response to be considered to move on to the second step of review, you must address the core functions handled by the District’s current systems since our intention is to review your response against the systems identified above.  Any third party additions to achieve this complete functionality must be clearly identified and experience with that combination of applications noted.  The District may consider vendor teaming to provide a complete solution.

The District requires the functionality be provided in a tightly integrated and robust system with all required functions provided from the vendors’ standard package. Custom applications or interfaces to our systems such as meter reading, IVR, OMS and banking/payment functions will be considered, but only with appropriate assurances of performances provided by the vendor and references from active customers using that combination of components.

Our preference is to keep current business practices where they make sense, but adapt to new capabilities provided by an enterprise system.  Any system that requires us to change business practices to accommodate software limitations will be viewed as a drawback to that solution. 

You may also include in your response optional modules for our review that may be valuable to our business.  These should be identified as “optional” and their prices may be listed separately.

The response can only include modules and functionality currently in commercial use, but we welcome your additional comments on future developments in your technology road map with estimates of live dates.  We are looking to review both a system and a vendor that will help the District grow and adapt over the next ten years.

For questions, please contact Michelle Ochweri, Manager of Contracts & Purchasing at cp@bentonpud.org.
