The NY 3Rs Association, Inc. is prepared to take on the management and administration of a statewide library delivery system. A NY 3RS Association task force was charged with evaluating the existing LAND delivery service and making recommendations for a new service that replicates the services LAND provided. This new service will ideally connect to existing regional delivery services and improve resource sharing throughout the state of New York. The new services would be in place by July 2012; the regional interconnectivity would be phased in by June 2013. The IDS Project and ConnectNY have partnered with the NY 3Rs Association to engage Gregory Pronevitz, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Library System, as a consultant for this project. Responsibilities of the consultant will include:
- developing a survey instrument to survey stakeholders
- developing a procurement document for vendors
- consulting with vendors and reviewing proposals
- working with the task force to identify the best vendor and draft/review a contract
