News and Updates for Our Current Business Partners

ITSSS-2 BPA Update: May 28, 2024

It is with great excitement that the Finance and Facilities Division, Procurement Section announces the award of the Information Technology Supplies and Support Services 2nd Generation Blanket Purchase Agreement, commonly referred to as ITSSS-2. ITSSS-2 is the follow-up vehicle to the highly successful ITSSS in which the FBI invested over $2B for IT services.  ITSSS-2 will be the primary contract vehicle for the FBI to obtain critical IT service needs for the next eight years. In the spirit of continued collaboration with the Department of Justice (DOJ), ITSSS-2 will also be available for use by all DOJ components.

ITSSS-2 will provide the FBI with streamlined acquisition procedures and a vetted Vendor Pool to establish call orders more efficiently.  There are a total of 95 awardees that bring their robust expertise to partner with the FBI in making advancements of technology services. The 95 awardees are made up of 31 Large Businesses and 64 Small Businesses. The estimated spend for ITSSS-2 is $8b.  This is the largest IT contract vehicle ever established by the FBI.  The Procurement Section team will be providing standardized ordering procedures and templates and establishing a resource portal to assist FBI customers with their requirements packages.  An additional resource the team will establish is a forecasting tool to identify upcoming requirements on a timely basis and to allow ITSSS-2 vendors to appropriately plan their proposals.  Over these next few weeks, the Procurement Team will be having informational sessions to share with all stakeholders.  

We look forward to the continued collaboration with both our Division Partners and our Industry Partners.
