HUD delays final solicitation for HIIPS replacement

HUD delays final solicitation for HIIPS replacement

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

HUD officials said they need more time to respond to the large volume of industry comments and questions about the latest draft request for proposals. The department had planned to issue the final RFP this month.

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

Through HITS, the department will obtain data processing and management, data recovery, printing and distribution, LAN, WAN and Web administration services.

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

HUD plans to post a new date for the RFP's release on the Web at www.hud.gov/offices/cpo/contract/hits.cfm. HUD in April issued the first draft RFP for the project, followed by a second draft in June.
