GSA contracts to help boost HUBZone buys

Even though Congress might not fund the Historically Underutilized Business Zone program for this year, agencies still are required to meet their HUBZone contracting goals. To help agencies do that, the General Services Administration, through the Federal Technology Service, an-nounced it would release a request for proposals for a HUBZone governmentwide acquisition contract this month.

The contract will cover Internet services, call centers, distance learning, videoconferencing, wiring and cabling, network design, computer operations and support, network management, contingency planning and information assurance.

GSA plans to award a minimum of three and a maximum of 10 contracts for each service. The contract could be worth $2.5 billion over five years.

Agencies have not met goals set for contracts with HUBZone companies. GSA aims to give a contract award by April.
