“As we begin Release 1 of our Revenue Administration Modernization Project (RAMP), we are pleased to be working alongside Revenue Solutions, Inc. (RSI). RSI was selected for their collaborative approach and flexibility, which was first demonstrated during the procurement process – a theme which has continued throughout the project’s Mobilization phase. Their team has shown versatility in accommodating our project objectives and patience as we overcome our learning curve to understand future state concepts.
We look forward to sharing our implementation journey with RSI, and have every confidence that the path to modernization will be eased with them as our valued business partner.”

The entire software solution will be hosted by an external vendor located in Canada. The selection of the hosting vendor is currently in final evaluations.
The competitive procurement, which included a very thorough Request for Proposal (RFP), a written proposal response, orals presentation and product demonstration, took place in the second half of 2014. After making their selection in December, the Ministry had to wait for budget approval in the spring of 2015 before negotiating the contract. The RSI Project Team began work in Saskatchewan this summer. The project award by the Canadian Ministry makes this RSI’s first international client.
