RFP should be there
They want iPhones in conjunction to existing iPads.
Had the PB been embraced, this would not have happened. Had RIM been healthy, this would not have happened. Had RIM reacted to Apple'e challenge, this would not have happened. The PB failed miserably in the government, this is the result.

Awarding a million dollar contract to RIM for communication services is risky at this point in time.

[Article] BlackBerry Being Dropped by U.S. Agency Over Reliability Issues
How has RIM proven that it has met the requirements of the consumer?
How has RIM proven that it can meet a challenger to its position of preeminence in an agile manner?
What is RIM's track record of prompt delivery of a new release?

So it is not unfair for any company or agency to look at all available alternatives.Thorsten Heins: "We have a clear shot at being the No. 3 platform in the market" - 09/25/2012

This is the beginning of the Post PC Era. Consumers and Enterprise are now embracing the world of tablets and pocket computers (the smartphone tag will soon be obsolete). The lighter, solid state drives of the new Ultrabooks are now the new workhorses. The desktop computer is fading away and will only be used by professionals that need a huge screen. The mechanical hard drives in computers are now being dumped for flash drives, just as mechanical keyboards are fading.
Doesn't anyone else see this?

Some things are just not as invisible as others.

RIM has to keep up - as do all vendors.

Only time will tell us whether this is PROVEN. Right now it's just marketing, opinion and hope. Not what you base a multi-million $, multi-year commitment on.
