HUD holds back on HIIPS replacement

The Housing and Urban Development Department has delayed the release of its final solicitation for a 10-year, multimillion-dollar enterprise systems contract.

Department officials said they need more time to respond to industry comments and questions about the latest draft request for proposals. HUD had planned to issue the final RFP last month.

Through the HUD Information Technology Service buy, the department will replace the $526 million HUD Integrated Information Processing Service contract awarded in 1990 to Lockheed Martin Corp.

HITS services will include data processing and management, data recovery, printing and distribution, LAN, WAN and Web administration services.

The current contract expires in 2003. HUD officials want to award the replacement contract early next year.
