The County wishes to receive bids for banking, treasury, and ePayment services in order to ensure it is receiving the best pricing and servicing, most current technology, utilizing any available interest earning opportunities to minimize the tax burden on its constituents, introduce new technologies, reduce costs, and streamline account structures where possible. About the County Please use the following links to learn more about Rensselaer County. 1. About Rensselaer County 2. Audited Financial Statements - Most recent and historic 3. Budgets - Most recent and historic 4. The Countys Investment Policy can be found in Appendix B Objectives The County wishes to enter into a long-term, well-rounded banking relationship that will be sustainable and attractive to all parties involved. In doing so, the County seeks to accomplish the following objectives: Maintain a long-term customer-centric banking relationship; Have access to a user-friendly, intuitive banking services online portal; Gain operational efficiencies through the use of treasury services/technology; Reduce check volume (both those received for payments and those issued for disbursements); Maximize potential rebates through a virtual card/p-card program; Maximize the value of every dollar; and, Ensure competitive pricing. General Process This enhanced RFP process will take place through three distinct phases: (1) Phase One - qualification and pricing, (2) Phase Two - relationship and in-person or virtual interviews, and (3) Phase Three - final legal contract review and selection. Phase 1 responses should be submitted through the banking rfpPrep web portal at www.rfpPrep.us. Proposers will need to sign-up for and have their access to the rfpPrep web portal approved by three+one. Phase 1 responses are due on or before January 14, 2022 at 4:00 P.M.

Submission of a proposal confers no rights upon the proposer, nor does it obligate the County in any manner. The County reserves the right not to award an Agreement and to solicit offers at a later date. The County reserves the right to reject technicalities and to reject any or all proposals in the best interest of the County. The County expressly reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to accept or reject any or all proposals, with or without cause, modify, alter, waive or reject any technicalities or provisions, or to accept the proposal which, in its sole judgment, is determined to be the best evaluated offer resulting from negotiations. After review of proposals and conducting interviews, if any, County staff may be authorized by the County to commence negotiation for a contract with the proposer recommended for the award. The County CFO will be the signer on any agreement entered into as a result of the RFP. If a satisfactory contract cannot be negotiated with the proposer deemed most qualified within a reasonable period of time, as determined solely by the County, negotiations with the proposer will be suspended, and negotiations shall be undertaken with the proposer ranked second most qualified. Should a satisfactory contract not be negotiated with either of the proposers, additional proposers may be selected in order of qualifications, as established by proposal review and/or interview, and negotiations entered into as outlined above. The proposer agrees to negotiate in good faith with the County to enter into a formal agreement with the County, with such agreement substantially incorporating the terms and conditions of the RFP. RFP Contact Alex DeRosa will be the official contact throughout this RFP process. The secondary contact will be Leah Riley. All questions must be submitted to one of the contact persons within the time frame permitted in the Schedule of Events. Phase 2 presentations will be scheduled through the contact person(s). Proposers are responsible to schedule a presentation time slot during the days outlined in the Schedule of Events and by the due date listed. For selected Proposers, presentations/demonstrations will be coordinated through Alex DeRosa and Leah Riley. You may reach the contact persons via email at: ald@threeplusone.us and ler@threeplusone.us. Scope of Services Overview Banking Services Proposals for banking services are being sought for the Countys accounts listed in Appendix D to meet (at a minimum) the service capabilities shown in the description column in Appendix C. The County is looking for Proposers who offer, at a minimum, what is currently being utilized. Treasury Services The County is looking for an enhanced treasury services relationship where the successful Proposer will offer the capabilities to provide streamlined documentation online, provide online tools for efficiencies, use banking portals to enhance cash flow management, and access a set of tools online that can link to the Countys current financial software. mailto:ald@threeplusone.us mailto:ler@threeplusone.us RFP-22-14 12/06/2021 Page: NED PATTISON RENSSELAER COUNTY GOVERNMENT CENTER 1600 SEVENTH AVENUE, TROY, NEW YORK 12180 5 ePayment Services The County wishes to change the way the finance office makes payments. The County knows there are opportunities to create efficiencies and generate revenue through ePayment and p- card/virtual card programs. While banks will be asked to respond to Phase 1 of this RFP based on the Countys current treasury services, the County is also requesting additional information and proposals on any card and ePayment programs or platforms that responding banks have to offer. There will be a dropbox on the rfpPrep portal for proposers to share specific details (program offerings, pricing, rebate opportunities, technology) on their ePayment and virtual card programs during Phase I of the RFP. During Phase II, proposers will be asked to weave these programs into their presentation. Scope of Services Detailed The County currently has one main operating bank relationship. The County typically uses between three to five additional banks for short-term and long-term investments (ICS, MMKs, CDARs, CDs, etc). See graph in Appendix A for the breakdown of deposits at these different banks. The County intends to establish a relationship with a Broker Dealer with one of its financial providers in order to gain access to the full list of allowable investments that can be found in their Investment Policy -- this is not an RFP for those services. Appendix C provides a list of all Treasury Services used over a recent 12-month period - this is also provided through the online rfpPrep web portal. Service description and total volume are provided for a 12-month period. At a minimum, a new contract will mirror all current services. However, the County is open and supportive of alternatives that can help it gain operational efficiencies where legal and practicable. Transaction volumes (in Appendix D) are provided as a guide to volume usage, but it is fully anticipated that usage will change through implementation of more efficient banking services. No attempt is made to project how volume usage will change. Historic & Current Cash Balances Appendix A highlights the Countys historical cash balances between all current operating and investment accounts. It is not to be assumed that the County will continue to hold the current deposit levels across each institution. Pricing should be based upon transaction volume and not upon historic balances. The County is willing to pay fees if greater value is available for those funds that would have been used to offset fees. Pricing points will be determined on the ECR and the overall cost based on historic transaction volume and proposed unit cost. Additional services not currently used by the County will be able to be added to the submission through the online response portal, but these services will not be included in the overall price comparison and may be used subjectively to impact the Service Capability (see Phase 1 Score Weighting on page 8). Current Account Structure Appendix D discusses the Countys current account structure, including a high-level summary of activity associated with each account. The purpose of this depiction is to allow the proposers the opportunity to highlight, through a presentation in Phase 2 (explained in further detail below), advantageous opportunities of differentiation through the current and desired account structure and to propose other services that can provide value to the County. At a minimum, the County will continue with all accounts as listed. However, any potential consolidations through ZBA structures RFP-22-14 12/06/2021 Page: NED PATTISON RENSSELAER COUNTY GOVERNMENT CENTER 1600 SEVENTH AVENUE, TROY, NEW YORK 12180 6 will be considered, and are encouraged, as well as other recommendations made in Phase 2 if sufficient value is demonstrated through financial and operational efficiency. Deposits & Investments The purpose of this RFP is not for outside investment firms, but proposers are encouraged to share unique opportunities within their institution to earn additional interest on all monies. However, any services that have an investment purpose (e.g. money market deposit/savings accounts), must comply with all state laws governing the investment and collateralization of public funds. The Countys Investment Policy can be found in Appendix B. All those responding will be required in the Phase 1 process to acknowledge they have read, and will comply with, the Countys Investment Policy. Accounting Software The Countys accounting software is New World ERP by Tyler Technologies. The County is currently implementing new features including Miscellaneous Billing, Tyler Payments, and Tyler Cashiering. Proposers need to confirm capability to integrate services, send & receive securely to and from the accounting software without manual intervention (Straight-Through Processing (STP)), and otherwise facilitate information exchange efficiently and effectively with the accounting software. This can be done via SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol), online file transfer or other available methods. Proposers are encouraged to expand on methods the County can use within its online facilities to auto-process tasks the County may currently do manually in an effort to save taxpayer resources. This may include workflow solutions for payment creation and approval processes in addition to visibility of balance and transaction reporting. The Future of Treasury Services and ePayments Overall, the Countys transaction volume is very traditional and antiquated in electronic payments. More municipal entities are moving payments to electronic methods and reducing check volume. Managing the changing payment landscape increases in importance as costs for paper disbursements continue to increase, the population demographics change, and the financial technology advances. Check Disbursements: Checks continue to be a very inefficient way of conducting financial transactions. The main reasons most entities continue to cut and/or choose paper disbursements are related to remittance data that accompanies the check. Financial solutions exist today that provide the remittance data needed as well as the cost savings associated with electronic payments. Recognizing the cultural shift needed for electronic payments, the County may adopt an Electronic Payment Policy stating the plan to phase in electronic payments over a specified period of time (between three and five years). The adoption of such a policy will provide both the County and its vendors with the timeframe needed to make any process adjustments. Moving to electronic payments also strengthens the banking relationship. Banks have developed and gained efficiencies that also make this an attractive service to RFP-22-14 12/06/2021 Page: NED PATTISON RENSSELAER COUNTY GOVERNMENT CENTER 1600 SEVENTH AVENUE, TROY, NEW YORK 12180 7 provide. However, the County is aware that banks are no longer the only providers of electronic payment services. Non-financial providers have entered this arena and provide competitive p-card/ghost card/ACH payment services as well. This provides the opportunity for generating revenue through this program rather than increased costs. Phase 1 - Qualification and Pricing Round: Phase 1 responses are subject to three criteria: 1. Overall service capability of the institution as determined by responses to the Yes/No and short-answer online response form provided. a. Appendix E lists all the Yes/No and short-answer questions that must be answered through the online portal. Access to this portal will be granted after the mandatory pre-bid conference. The questions are provided in Appendix E for convenience at this time to allow all institutions the ability to review with internal teams. 2. Two pricing options are available with only one being selected by each respondent: a. Option 1 provides a line item pricing structure based on AFP codes and services being used by the County at their current banking provider. The Countys true volumes are used throughout. This has been done in order to facilitate comparisons between proposals. Option 1 includes proposing an ECR which will be used to calculate the compensating balance to offset all or a portion of fees. b. Option 2 is a flat fee compensating balance proposal. The proposers will be asked to list the compensating balance requirement needed in order for the County to not pay any fees. In addition, the proposers will be asked to list the current interest rate that liquid dollars kept at the bank over and above the compensating balance amount can earn. If the proposer selects this option, the proposed balance will be compared with the compensating balance responses of Option 1. 3. Reputation as provided by references. Three references of current municipal clients must be submitted. It is preferred that one client be new (within the last 12 months) and one long-term (more than 3 years). It is also preferred that at least one reference has experience utilizing the responding banks ePayment program. The County reserves the right to contact any government with which the Proposer provides similar services to if the service provider is known through various associations. Cost Proposal An online response template and an offline download/upload excel template will be provided on the rfpPrep portal. The Option 1 Pricing section of the rfpPrep portal and the pre-bid virtual meeting will review the details of how to use these two Option 1 pricing templates. Basic transaction volume is provided in Appendix D for the period October 2020 - September 2021. When submitting pricing proposals, proposers will be required to include associated AFP codes in order to support comparisons between proposals. As banking services pricing differs from bank to bank, room is provided within the template to add substitute pricing, and additional appropriate line items where applicable or appropriate to list new services/fees. See Option 1 features explanation below. RFP-22-14 12/06/2021 Page: NED PATTISON RENSSELAER COUNTY GOVERNMENT CENTER 1600 SEVENTH AVENUE, TROY, NEW YORK 12180 8 Proposers will need to build, through the online pricing portal or provided excel file, the fee structure fully needed to support the services currently being used. The host of fees associated with current full service municipal banking should be included. Proposers that move on to phase 2 will be scored on fee justification which will require them to justify any fees added in phase 2 and explain as to why they were not present in phase 1. Proposers that move on to phase 3 and contract negotiations will be explicitly required to explain and defend any fees charged to the County that were not present in phase 1. Option 1 Features Explanation Proposers will have the opportunity to add new fees that are not listed within the provided service descriptions but will be charged by the bank. Proposers will have the opportunity to include substitute fees in place of any of the listed fees/service descriptions. Proposers will have the opportunity to completely waive fees that the bank does not charge. Any fees that are completely waived will need a description to confirm that the bank does not charge for this service or a closely related service. Proposers are asked to include additional fees and services that may be presented as a result of new recommendations/ideas during phase 2 or phase 3 in the Proposed Services Pricing section. These fees will not be factored into the total calculated cost to the County for phase 1 comparison purposes, but they will be used in phase 2 presentations for proposers new servicing ideas. The purpose of this section is to represent additional services not currently being used by the County that a respondent offers and may propose in phase 2 or phase 3. Option 2 Cost Proposal Proposers that choose Option 2 for pricing will have the opportunity to submit alternative flat fee and/or compensating balance pricing in place of the line item fee responses. The County will evaluate each pricing scenario independently in order to compare their options across different proposers. If the proposer chooses Option 2, they will also need to provide the scenarios under which the required compensating balance will be adjusted as market rates change. Proposers will need to indicate whether a floor and/or ceiling will be set on the size of the compensating balance. Finally, selecting Option 2 is an overt commitment that all services the County may need from the proposer will be included in the value of the balances submitted. Over the life of the contract, future adjustments to balances may only be made based on changes in the rate environment and not changes in banking services. Phase 1 Weighting Total possible points is 100, weighted as follows: Service Capability: 45 points Pricing of Existing Services: 25 points References: 30 points Phase 1 Required Documents All Phase 1 proposers will be required to download, fill out, and submit the Certification of Compliance via the rfpprep.us portal. Phase 1 proposers will also be required to acknowledge that they have read the Insurance Requirements Form (available on the rfpPrep portal) and https://www.rfpprep.us/ RFP-22-14 12/06/2021 Page: NED PATTISON RENSSELAER COUNTY GOVERNMENT CENTER 1600 SEVENTH AVENUE, TROY, NEW YORK 12180 9 will satisfy those requirements if they win the RFP. The required Certification of Compliance and the Insurance Requirements Form can be found on pages 12-14. In addition to the Certification of Compliance document that the County is requiring to be submitted, the proposers will have the opportunity to upload their own necessary disclosures and required paperwork onto the rfpprep.us portal. Phase 2 - Presentation Phase The top scoring banking institutions in Phase 1 will be eligible for Phase 2 presentations, if determined by the County as appropriate. Phase 2 will begin with additional information, if any, being provided to proposers. Subsequently, proposers will have sufficient time to submit questions and prepare a presentation/demonstration. It is expected that each prospective banking institution will use their professional knowledge, experience, and data herein to provide a proactive and creative presentation that meets the objectives outlined. Simply responding with a presentation to duplicate the services as the County currently stands may not result in a winning proposal. Creativity is encouraged; meeting the needs of the County while defining a well-rounded relationship within the changing landscape of public banking is paramount. If a responding institution wants to propose services it deems to be superior or more appropriate than those requested, the responding institution should make the case, provide appropriate pricing, and an example of how it would provide a net benefit. All responding institutions should not submit the typical lengthy proposal. Submitted documents, including presentation slides, are limited to a maximum of 20 total pages. We encourage this round of presentations, taking place on February 15 & 16, 2022, to be creative. It is preferred that institutions prepare an overall presentation addressing the needs as outlined. All Phase 2 Proposers shall provide with their presentation a sample of proposed agreements for review by the County. Proposers in Phase 2 will be given a maximum of a 60-minute time slot to make their presentation. Areas required are as follows: Why you?: What makes your bank the best partner for the County? Possible discussion points include the following, but ultimately you may decide how to fill each topic area. o Number of public banking clients Dedication to this market space Research & development Clear differentiators from competitors Innovative solutions that correspond to the objectives outlined Proposed account structure and treasury services: (subject to the limitations outlined/provided) Your recommendations must include, but are not limited to: Why are you recommending the proposed account structure? https://www.rfpprep.us/ RFP-22-14 12/06/2021 Page: NED PATTISON RENSSELAER COUNTY GOVERNMENT CENTER 1600 SEVENTH AVENUE, TROY, NEW YORK 12180 10 How is the bank incorporating innovation? Local branch availability or how to manage the relationship if you do not have local branches. What is the benefit/value of your proposed account structure/treasury services? Fee justification of cost proposal provided in Phase 1 and adapted to your Phase 2 proposal. Why these fees? If not explicit, what value does the fee provide to the County? Be prepared to answer specific questions regarding fees. Discuss potential caps or limits your institution may be willing to give on fee increases at the end of the initial contract. How the bank has managed and plans to manage the transition experience. Customer Service model: o Accountability and Contact Frequency Account review Service method Demonstration of all online/web-based resources being offered (or provide a video overview of each before interview) Banking portal Payments Portal All others Introduction to key personnel. The County requires one relationship manager be available for the duration of the contract as the point of contact regarding any and all services provided by the proposer. Open Q&A Phase 2 Weighting Total possible points are 100, weighted as follows: Presentation with Proposed Account Structure and Treasury Services: 40 points Customer service model proposal: 40 points Fee justification: 20 points Selection Criteria The successful Proposer will be selected based on the best overall value. Price will be a factor in this decision, but will not be the sole, nor necessarily the most important factor. Experience, customer service, corrective action processes, efficient account structure, treasury services, fraud protection, technology, and maximizing the value of every dollar will all be factors considered. RFP-22-14 12/06/2021 Page: NED PATTISON RENSSELAER COUNTY GOVERNMENT CENTER 1600 SEVENTH AVENUE, TROY, NEW YORK 12180 11 Phase 3 - Preliminary Finalist Phase: Phase 3 preliminary finalists will be selected based on the overall cumulative score of Phase 1, Phase 2, and the Countys legal review of the Proposers submitted Agreements.
