Update: May 1, 2013
The purpose of this update is to post the following modification to the Synopsis/Pre-Solicitation notice for PR-OCFO-13-00070:
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of the Chief Financial Officer (OCFO) Office of Technology Solutions (OTS) is changing its acquisition strategy and plans to compete OCFO’s Operations and Maintenance (O&M) requirement using the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWAC) Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center (NITAAC) awarded to qualified small businesses under CIO-SP3. The overall scope of work outlined in the draft Performance Work Statement (PWS) that EPA posted February 26, 2013 in FedBizOpps notice SOL-DC-13-00009 (PR-OCFO-13-00070) remains the same.
EPA anticipates issuing a Request for Quotation (RFQ) utilizing NITAAC’s e-GOS to all small business contract holders in early to mid June 2013. Prior to the RFQ release, EPA will host an OCFO Industry Day on May 15, 2013. EPA will post an OCFO Industry Day invitation and all related notices via the NITAAC e-GOS as well. All small businesses that had previously responded with interest to the February 26, 2013 FedBizOpps notice, but do not have a CIO-SP3 small business contract, can attend OCFO’s Industry Day to meet CIO-SP3 contract holders attending the event and are encouraged to contact CIO-SP3 contract holders for potential subcontracting opportunities.
If you are interested in attending OCFO’s Industry Day to learn more, ask questions and to facilitate a subcontracting arrangement with the CIO-SP3 contract holders, contractors can email their reservation response to Jennifer Scharrer at firstname.lastname@example.org including your company’s attendee name and ‘OCFO Industry Day RSVP’ in the email subject line by 4:00 PM EST on May 10, 2013. More information can be found on NITAAC’s CIO-SP3 Small Business GWAC at: http://nitaac.nih.gov/nitaac/contracts/cio-sp3-small-business.
