The Ministry of Public Works is extending the deadline for submissions for the Request for Information [RFI] to establish a Technology Hub, with a new deadline set of November 15th.

A spokesperson said, “The Ministry of Public Works is advising the public that it is has received great interest in its Request for Information [RFI] to establish a Technology Hub. As a result, the Ministry is extending the deadline for submissions to November 15th.

“The public will recall that the 2017 Speech from the Throne, outlined that the Government of Bermuda will create a Tech Hub with the aim of helping to expand Bermuda’s economy.

“In the context of the RFI, the Tech Hub will be a physical space in which startup companies and/ or individuals can gather to receive the support to grow their businesses.

“Individuals using the Tech Hub will have access to the Government’s regulatory environment, tax advice, and other government services. The Hub will also serve as a business incubator for introducing, developing and including young people in the tech industry.

“The RFI is the first part of a multi-step process. This first phase is to obtain information on vision/concepts, products and services on the creation of the Tech Hub, with additional phases incorporating detailed information RFQs and/or RFPs from those who successfully demonstrate the capability of delivering a Tech Hub. To review the full RFI visit here.”

The Ministry invites interested individuals to send their RFI submissions to: Claudelle Richardson, Ministry of Public Works, General Post Office Building – 3rd Floor, 56 Church Street, Hamilton HM 12. Email: carichardson@gov.bm

    Why even do a RFI? Just put out the proposed specs in the RFQ/RFP. Unless the government doesn’t know what they want to build yet. Personally, I don’t believe this is money well-spent by government. Especially if South Side is where this will be. Why wouldn’t I just rent an office space from someone like Suite Solutions who are much closer to Hamilton and all the legal, insurance, and capital minds. Should an entrepreneur put more stock in the government than the free market to get their business off the ground? Seems like a money pit.

      Totally spot on! By having to extend this deadline they are basically acknowledging NO interest!

      Section 4 of the RFI describes the purpose of the RFI which is the information gathering aspect to determine needs, visions and Section 5 describes what the Tech Hub is. You won’t achieve Section 5 objectives by renting office space at Suite Solutions. If as stated below there is little or no interest maybe Government could create a background structure to show how a physical location combined with platforms for access to government ministries, resources whether it be software, legal services, health services whatever the need may be, this could spur some more interest. This could definitely be a good idea if well planned. Just think about how difficult it is presently to navigate governments web site.
