The offeror must demonstrate experience with large implementations of an ERP encompassing the Financial, Procurement, and Human Resource (HR) components that have been implemented for at least 18 months. Large implementations must include organizations equivalent in size to the state of Ohio, meaning greater than $50 billion in annual revenues (for financial and procurement components) and more than 65,000 employees (for HR components). To demonstrate this experience, the offeror must include references from organizations that have completed the ERP implementations. Duplicate the following table as needed for up to, but not more than, three references. If more than three references are provided, only the first three listed will be used for scoring.
