Over the past ten years, a number of Texas counties have replaced their core justice systems through Urban Counties’ TechShare program. In order to provide a complete integrated justice solution for Texas counties, software that addresses jail operations and functions associated with arrests is essential.

Historically, Urban Counties has relied on a few “funding” counties to provide the resources necessary for software development projects for TechShare resources.  Urban Counties, through a competitive process, would select a traditional vendor and contract with them for the software development process, using the standard approach and technology platform adopted by Urban Counties. The result of each project was software and other intellectual property that is held by Urban Counties on behalf of the funding and participating counties.

Through this RFP, Urban Counties is pursuing a different approach, where the selected vendor will share risk through a contractual business relationship with Urban Counties. Download the RFP to learn more about this project.
