A number of end users and consultant members asked us the best way to select quality security integrator, following our manufacturer survey results listing lacks of skills as the most critical problem they find in integrators.

Often, and especially for larger scale projects, specific qualifications need to be listed in the bid / RFP documents. In this note, we provide recommendations on how to specify qualifications and what issues to avoid.
