OPM employees win A-76 bid for IT at Ga. center

Office of Personnel Management employees in Georgia won a streamlined competition for computer assistance and building management services by underbidding its commercial competitor by more than 40 percent.

The 21 computer assistants and one building management assistant at the Division for Human Resources Products and Services Center for Talent Services in Macon, Ga., bid $4.8 million over five years, in part by decreasing the number of staff to 18.

OPM's team provides IT technical advice and support for systems design and Web hosting services for several agencies.

This is the 12th public-private competition OPM has conducted under the OMB Circular A-76. Agency employees have won all of them, which OPM said adds up to a five-year cost savings of $57.5 million.
