IRS to issue RFP for broad IT support services at Treasury

The IRS plans to issue a request for proposals on June 22 for Total Information Processing Support Services-3 for the Treasury Department and its agencies. It is a continuation of the broad range of IT services provided by previous Treasury IT support services contracts, the IRS National Procurement Office said in its notice on FedBizOpps yesterday.

The TIPSS-2 contract, which was valued at nearly $1 billion over five years, was awarded in 2000 and it expires in June 2005. Its many vendors include Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. of McLean, Va.; EDS Corp.; IBM Corp.; Northrop Grumman Corp.; and Unisys Corp.

TIPSS-3 will provide systems support, security and business services.

IRS will conduct a full and open competition for the contracts, which will be for one year with four one-year options. TIPSS-3 is expected to result in multiple awards of varying contract types, including indefinite-delivery-indefinite quantity, cost-plus-fixed-fee, fixed price and time-and-materials featuring term, completion and performance-based task orders.
