Re: Canadian Red Cross Vendor Outreach Forum


On behalf of the Canadian Red Cross and the CATAAlliance, I invite your attendance and participation in a Vendor Outreach Forum (VOF). This half-day, interactive forum will allow leading Canadian ICT providers and solution consultants to meet with the top executives and IT managers of the Canadian Red Cross.

The principal objective of the VOF is to review high level details regarding over 15 capital projects being tendered for bid this year by the Canadian Red Cross, as well as identify plans to have CATAAlliance act as the primary conduit and facilitator of their IT procurement process.

Areas of priority for the Canadian Red Cross include recommendations for the consolidation of portals for key applications to reduce duplication, for enhancements to data centre support to improve overall customer experience, and for host renewal.

The VOF will be held Feb. 13, 2007 at the Best Western - Victoria Park Suites from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. The event is $45 for CATAAlliance members and $125 for non-members.

Organizations attending the event include Medical Intelligence Technologies Inc. and Provident. Register early to reserve your place as space is limited.

Best regards,
John Reid,
