They just seem to be reluctant to get in touch with me. One has, and
another is saying they're in meetings. And the third hasn't contacted me.
Business must be good.

Dear Michael,

If some of your preferred vendors are reluctant to give you a ball-park
guess, it might be because they have enough experience and savvy to know
that the degree of detail in your note below doesn't enable a ball-park
guess. What you might get is an order of magnitude guess .... and here's
mine: a few hundred thousand dollars.

At Unbeaten Path we have a process that, with measured billable steps,
refines costs from "order of magnitude" to "ball-park" to "reasonable
estimate" to "not-to-exceed estimate." Here's 3 URLs describing approaches
that have worked on sizeable, not-fully-described-yet development projects:

Subject: Change Management Vendor Costs

Hey folks...I need to develop some quick budget numbers for a change
management, SCM, promotion to production system. I realize there are a lot
of variables, but I'd appreciate some ballpark numbers. If you would,
send me a direct email and give me an idea. I'm in contact with Arcad,
Aldon, and PTC with varying levels of followup by the vendors.
