Dear Allotrope Community Members,

Please find the attached Request for Proposal (RFP)  "High-Level API in support of Tabular Graph Models Utilizing the Allotrope Data Format (ADF)".

Background and Purpose taken from RFP:

"3.1 Background

The tabular and aggregation model approaches for Allotrope Data Models leverage a small number of semantic data patterns2 for data representation. These patterns are repeated across all valid tabular and aggregation models to enable a consistent means of accessing and writing data for these models, which allows for re-use of the same SPARQL queries across different modelling domains. 

3.2 Purpose

The purpose of the project is to create a high level tabular API to encapsulate these repeatable patterns into native Java and .NET objects that can be read and written easily by a developer, without any semantic knowledge, and translated to and from the appropriate semantic patterns within an ADF file."


All proposals in response to this RFP are due via email no later than 5pm EST Sept. 2nd, 2020. Submissions received after this date are not guaranteed to have full consideration. Evaluation of proposals will be conducted starting the same day. If additional information or discussions are needed with any bidders during this time window, the bidder(s) will be notified.


Please feel free to distribute the link to the RFP to any relevant software vendor who may be a candidate to respond to the RFP.
