The State of Ohio’s IT Staff Augmentation (OH ITSA) program is used by the State and other public-sector organizations as the preferred method for procuring hourly time and material resources. OST, Inc. is the State of Ohio's Managed Service Provider for IT Staff Augmentation (OH ITSA). OST facilitates the staff augmentation procurement process between State hiring managers and the nationwide OH ITSA staffing network providers. OST is partnered with VectorVMS and provides a Vendor Management System that handles the workflow from beginning to end. The OH ITSA program is dedicated to transparency, continuous improvement of process efficiency, and providing opportunities to the Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Encouraging Diversity, Growth and Equity (EDGE) programs communities.
Vendors must be registered with the OH ITSA program in order to receive opportunities. There is a preference for vendors holding an MBE certification and with an Ohio Economic Presence.
In order to participate in the OH ITSA program as an MBE or EDGE, companies must first be registered with the Ohio Department of Administrative Services (DAS) Equal Opportunity Division (EOD).
