As many of you know the Ministry is in the middle of the process to select a new vendor to replace the current BCeSIS. The have done a full requirement analysis and issued a formal RFP and got responses from six vendors. After reviewing the responses they have short listed this down to three vendors. We are anticipating that the evaluation process will be completed sometime in the summer and will know who the new BCeSIS is going to be then.
Below are two Press Releases that the Ministry issued today explaining the process and also the current state of the process
If you have any questions about the future of BCeSIS and the transitition to the new product please feel free to contact me at: email@example.com
Our online recordings are now available. Please click on the Calendar of Events link on the top left of the screen and choose training recordings. We will be posting all of our recordings and training materials there.
Welcome to the new BCeSIS support website for Independent and First Nations schools. As you can see we have changed our website completely. There were a few of reasons for the change. Firstly we have had the same website for over 5 years so it was time for a change. Also the purpose of the site has changed, we used to have schools implementing as well as getting support BCeSIS, but now it is primary focus is providing ongoing support so that will be more of the focus. (as such we have also integrated our helpdesk applications for both First Nations and Independent Schools). Finally the primary reason is because this platform is a lot easier for us to edit the content and also to manage the calendar of events.
So with that said here are a couple of the things you need to know:
1. To Access BCeSIS just click on the “BCeSIS” link on the top menu.
2. To Access Helpdesk just click on the ” Helpdesk” link. (please note for some schools your username and password has been update, you would have received an email if it did change).
3. The biggest change is the calendar of events page. If you click on the “Calendar of Events” link at the top you will be taken to a monthly list of all the upcoming events. (as well if you just hold your mouse over the “Calendar of Events” menu link you will see other options like, Events by Category or all upcoming events). (Please note the first time you sign up for an event you will need to enter your name and email address, you will then get an email with a password, afterwards you can just signup using your username and password)
Looking forward to an exciting new year of BCeSIS.
