19 (RFI) and/or A PSR may be used to obtain information or instructions from licensees or interested suppliers234 In New York, an RFI may be sent to potential bidders; 235 A PSR can be used to explain the requirements for the software or services an agency wishes to acquire.236 In New York, a request for advice can be used to solicit contributions from all potential bidders on a solicitation structure and language to assess their impact on potential bidders. 237 The 28 transit agencies that responded to the survey indicated that they used different methods to obtain information to make specific observations238. 240 FRY,241 site visits and/or RFIs from other transit agencies,242 suppliers,243 and other forms of research, including Internet.244 Another approach is writing specifications as means of delivery.245 Transit-Agen-cies indicated that they had issued a separate contract for the preparation of specifications for their technology acquisitions.246 E. Interfaces with lega taire and/or proprietary technological standards are developing so rapidly that it is necessary to further interinterize technology systems for data exchange or data transmission;247, however, a transit agency may have an older and/or proprietary system, to which new software and/or hardware must be properly linked to each other. In addition to the correct specifications, an agency wants an entrepreneur, designer, developer, licensee or supplier to guarantee that a new system will be able to connect to the old and/or proprietary of the Agency`s technology. In the latest articles, the integration of legacy systems has been discussed with new ones. Genesee- Wyoming have retained an aging train control system in Illinois to connect to a modern, computerized dispatching center in Vermont.248 Although the existing system was commissioned in April 1966, RailWorks Signals-Communications managed to link the old equipment to a new central dispatch system.249 Another article describes a successful project for WMATA, in which the [ystems]ystems supported funding, budget, materials management and management were replaced and at the same time replaced.”249 250 Systems integration included four large packages of COTS, including requirement validation, design, verification, implementation and systems. , at 37:38 (September 2015), comptroller.texas.gov/procurement/ pub/contractguide/contract-contract-guide-guide-v1.14.pdf (the last consultation took place on February 24, 2017) (summary of differences between tenders, enquiries, application, application for qualification); Tom McEwen, Randall Guynes, Julie Wartell, Steve Pendleton, Institute for Law and Justice, Information Technology Acquisition (Final Report), www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/nij/grants/204026.pdf 45-56 (2002), www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/nij/grants/204026.pdf (February 24, 2017); Del, code Ann. tit. 29, 6924 (b) (c) (2016); Mr. Ariz.
