Teachers Retirement System RFP-FY22 Information Technology Application Development

January 21, 2022

Request for



The Teachers’ Retirement System of the State of Illinois (the System or TRS) is requesting proposals from qualified vendors to provide information technology application development services in an Agile/Scrum development cycle. TRS is seeking to supplement our permanent staff and contractors by outsourcing certain application modules. The selected vendor will assist TRS personnel and contractors by working cooperatively in the development and implementation of a new pension administration system (PAS) and/or provide continual enhancements, ongoing system maintenance to the existing PAS. The objective of this Request for Proposal is to solicit, from qualified, competitive proposals containing sufficient detail to permit an objective evaluation of the proposal, which may result in a contract to provide application development services on a time and materials basis for the Teachers’ Retirement System.


TRS is committed to increasing racial, ethnic, and gender diversity in all aspects of its utilization of vendors to provide goods and services to the System, to the greatest extent feasible, and within the bounds of financial and fiduciary prudence. To that end, the System strongly encourages qualified minority, female, disabled, and veteran-owned firms to submit proposals to this RFP.


A proposer’s preparation and submittal of a proposal or subsequent participation in presentations or contract negotiations creates no obligation on the System to award a contract or to pay any associated costs. All proposals and related materials will be retained by the System and will be subject to disclosure as required in accordance with the Illinois Freedom of Information Act.
