Summary:  The amendment would allow the County to exercise the second of two renewal options with LexisNexis Vitalchek Network Inc.  A Countywide Credit and Debit Card Request for Proposal for a new contract is currently in process. This amendment would allow the vendor to process all credit card transaction on behalf of all County User Agencies for continuation of service provided at 2.13%.  Only Department of Revenue is absorbing the fees, DOR anticipates an increase in revenue collection, as tax payers are more likely to pay funds owed to the County using their credit cards as a more convenient method of payment.

 

The contract was awarded through the Request for Proposals (RFP) process in accordance with the Cook County Procurement Code.  LexisNexis Vitalchek Network, Inc. was awarded based on established evaluation criteria.
