FSS requests proposals for support services contract worth $4.7 billion

The General Services Administration’s Federal Supply Service has
issued a request for proposals for a variety of information technology support services
for the western United States.


The solicitation is called the Applications ’N Support for Widely Diverse End-User
Requirements (ANSWER).


It includes requirements and design research, analysis and definition, system
development, software maintenance, and facilities management support services for
business, scientific and engineering applications.


GSA plans to award multiple contracts worth a total of $4.7 billion for ANSWER. Agency
officials said GSA intends to make no more than eight awards under the RFP, including two
to small or disadvantaged businesses.


GSA will guarantee each winning vendor a minimum of $100,000 in work.


Because each contract will have a ceiling value, as more orders are issued under one
contract, the value of orders that can be issued under the other contracts will decrease
accordingly.


Proposals are due by Aug. 10. More information on the contract can be found on the Web
at http://IT-Solutions.gsa.gov/answer.
