Special Notice - Status Update: December 22, 2022
Information Technology Supplies and Support Services 2nd Generation (ITSSS-2)
The purpose of this notice is to provide status; no information is being requested at this time.
On May 25, 2022, the General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Acquisition Service (FAS), Office of Information Technology (ITC) released a Request for Information (RFI) via GSA eBuy (#RFQ1560392) to gather information regarding market capabilities for awardees on the GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Information Technology. A similar notice was also released on sam.gov. The RFI closed June 8, 2022. In this notice, GSA originally estimated that the solicitation would be released the fourth quarter FY2022.
The government is currently defining requirements and developing the acquisition strategy to include the evaluation criteria. It is anticipated that a draft Request for Quote (RFQ), Statement of Work (SOW), and Labor Categories (LCAT Matrix) will be released in the second quarter 2023 timeframe through GSA e-Buy. After release of draft documents, time will be allotted for Question/Answer session(s) and Industry Day. The estimated timeframe for release of the official RFQ is now late third quarter/fourth quarter 2023. No additional information is currently available.
Moving forward, GSA will provide status updates to industry on the 23rd of each month via GSA e-Buy. If the 23rd falls on a weekend or holiday, the status update will be posted the following business day.
To carry out our intelligence and law enforcement missions, the FBI must meet the needs of our personnel and manage the facilities we have located across the country and around the world.
