Description of Project
Minnesota IT Services (MNIT) is seeking a vendor to provide a Payment Card Industry (PCI) Readiness Assessment for all merchant identification numbers issued by the Minnesota Department of Management and Budget (MMB) to agency partners. These merchant IDs are issued to multiple State of Minnesota agencies with varying degrees of card processing requirements. There are 550 total merchant IDs that have been issued to state agencies by MMB and this assessment will review compliance to PCI Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) version 3.2 for each merchant ID for the approximately 140 ID’s assigned to MNIT, scoped out into phases. The process of PCI Readiness Assessment will help MNIT and agency partners verify correct interpretation of PCI DSS rules with appropriate implementation of controls in the agency cardholder data environments to maintain compliance with PCI DSS.

For each merchant ID, the vendor will perform an analysis and document the scope of the PCI DSS assessment identifying:
Locations
Payment transmission connections
Payment channels
Personnel roles and responsibilities
Computer network segments
Cardholder data storage locations
Hardware and software
Service providers and third parties

The vendor will perform a detailed assessment of the agency cardholder environment that could include interviews with key stakeholders, review policies and procedures, and conduct compensating control analysis. The goal will be to identify existing gaps and remediation needed to meet PCI DSS compliance.
