The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s information technology (IT) refresh program provides a consolidated channel for replacing and augmenting workplace IT hardware, like desktops and laptops, as well as some software maintenance and licensing. In June the Information Technology Services Division (ITSD) Work Space Support Unit (WSU) released a pre-solicitation notice to purchase and replace IT equipment at the FBI headquarters and potentially 56 field offices. Mid July, the solicitation was released for the anticipated $450 million IDIQ (Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity) contract.
If the FBI’s Information Technology Acquisition Program (ITAP) doesn’t sound familiar, that’s because up until recently the program went by Prevention of Information Technology Obsolescence 2, or PITO 2. The FBI’s ITAP program mainly provides enterprise-wide contract vehicles to purchase hardware and supports the FBI UNET and Sensitive Compartmented Information Operational Network (SCION) investments. This investment provides mainly operations and maintenance (O&M) support for 2013 to 2018.
The overall spending may not suggest it, but this tech refresh program ranks among the agency’s major investments. Objectives for this program include funding for the maintenance and licensing of selected baseline software products; facilitating the repair of workspace related IT hardware that are out of warranty; managing and providing funding for copier maintenance throughout the Bureau; and providing administrative and product management support (contractual, technical, billing, and warranty) for all workspace IT hardware that are provided through the contract.
The contract will be a firm fixed price IDIQ for a one year base period with four one-year option periods. The target date for the award is August 21, 2013. For more information visit FBO or GovWin Opportunity ID 95815 (login required).
