In February, 1984, the city of Seward released a request for proposal (RFP) for an electronic data processing system to automate certain city functions. The RFP was based on an information management requirements analysis undertaken in the fall of 1983. The RFP produced a response by eleven (11) data processing system vendors. These proposals ranged in price from nearly $62,000.00 to over $158,000.00 in five-year costs. Many of these proposals were incomplete.
