OPM issues RFI to revamp the USAJobs portal

The Office of Personnel Management is asking vendors for ideas to improve its USAJobs Web portal, a sign that the agency is preparing to confront the uncertain status of its plans for the site.

The agency has issued a request for information for work on its Recruitment One-Stop e-government project, which oversees the portal. The solicitation seeks vendor plans for improving the federal jobs Web site, at www.usajobs.com.

The agency's original award for work on the site was overturned by the General Accounting Office. GAO in May upheld a protest by Symplicity Corp. of Arlington, Va., a losing bidder for the contract to revamp the USAJobs site for Recruitment One-Stop.

The winning bidder, Monster Government Solutions, a subsidiary of TMP Worldwide Government Services of New York, has continued to work on the project under the 10-year, $62 million contract it received.

In its solicitation for ideas about the project, OPM asked vendors to submit details about how they would improve the services offered by Recruitment One-Stop, such as job announcements, online resume building and job applications, and employer services such as database mining.

Vendors also were asked to submit new functions they would add to the site. Responses are due April 26.
