The White House Office of Management and Budget is in the early stages of looking for a new contractor to provide supplemental IT support services.
OMB posted a request for information to FedBizOpps last week — responses by interested entities are due May 9.
The selected contractor would be responsible for “supplemental OMB specific work” outside of what the White House’s Office of the Chief Information Officer already takes care of. For example, the contractor would tend to OMB’s private cloud, and work on “special projects” as the need arises. The contractor would also act as a supplemental service desk provider for OMB employees — a performance work statement specifies that there were over 1,500 trouble tickets (on everything from hardware to access management) submitted in 2018.
The estimated period of the contract is July 31, 2019 through July 30, 2020, with four available and optional one year extensions. OMB also plans to have the new contractor work side-by-side with the current provider for a month or two at the beginning of the contract to complete the necessary “knowledge transfer.”
Interested companies are asked to describe their capabilities and a time that they have completed similar work for another government agency in the past.
