RFP Development
Provaliant RFP development begins with the “end in mind”. As a full life-cycle project consulting organization, we understand that project outcomes depend heavily on the completeness and precision of the RFP requirements. We develop RFPs for public retirement organizations to select the best vendor solution and make sure that the organization gets what it’s paying for! We can do this because have captured the “best practices” from all phases of our client’s projects and incorporated them into the Provaliant RFP development process.  Provaliant develops RFPs for pension system replacements, data cleansing/migration, financial/accounting systems, imaging and website development/redesign.

Vendor Selection

Our pension industry specific processes and templates provide guidance to your organization during the selection process.   We assist your staff to determining the process used to score the RFP, and determining why certain scoring works best for you.  We provide support in setting-up vendor demonstrations, bidder conferences, performing reference checks, review of the submitted proposals, notifications, finalist presentations, management of and support for the contract negotiations.

Program Management
Program Management requires discipline and experience in running multiple projects at the same time. Why does your organization need Program Management?  It is a major oversight to think that a pension system replacement project is a single standalone project.  Most pension system replacements include data cleansing and migration, employer reporting outreach, business rule development, business procedures and training, legacy system decommissioning, organizational change, website enhancements, and financial system replacement, imaging, workflow, and ongoing maintenance and enhancements.  Provaliant focuses on the program is to ensure that all of the pieces of the effort are managed as a single unified effort to reduce risk and ensure success. 

Project Management
We use a consistent and disciplined approach to planning, executing, controlling, and closing out information technology and other agency projects.  Our goal is to management the schedules, risks and issues, reduce  cycle time, reduced delivery costs, improved quality of project deliverables, and identification and manage project issues, budget, scope, and risks;

Project Oversight
Our approach to Project Oversight is to engage in an independent assessment review and analysis of a project, applying knowledge and expertise to gauge performance and assess risk. At a high-level it provides your executives and stakeholders with an indication of the project’s current status and outlook for success.  At the detail level it will determine if the project is on track to be completed within the estimated schedule and cost, and will provide the functionality required by your organization. Project oversight also identifies and quantifies any issues and risks affecting the program and underlying projects.

Business Process Modeling
Looking to model your organization's business processes? Provaliant Retirement can help. Our experienced consultants will outline a detailed approach for modeling, business process improvements and an approach to implementing your business processes.

Project Risk Assessment
Poor risk management is often cited as a primary reason for dissatisfied stakeholders and cost/schedule overruns, as well as failure of projects and programs. Because the risks associated with a large program such as a system replacement are numerous and frequently interrelated, having a solid risk management process that ensures early detection and mitigation can avoid increased costs later in the program.  Whether you have already started implementing a new project or are just in the early stages of initiating a new project, Provaliant can help to ensure its success by performing a risk assessment. An assessment can help your organization assess the risks of your project and decide what actions to take.
