RFP - Document Scanning

The City of Dexter, in accordance with records retention requirements, is currently storing numerous original physical documents in a variety of sizes and formats. Some of these records are in binder-style minute books, others are individual papers binder-clipped together, and some are stapled together. These files are stored in banker’s boxes, which are generally labelled by subject matter. There is no list detailing the files in each of the boxes.

The goal of this project is to digitize this collection documents over a period of several years, improving access to these documents by staff and the public. The selected vendor will work with the City to digitize the highest priority documents first (Council, Board, and Committee Minutes and Agenda Packets).
