The General Services Administration is accepting proposals for a potential $2.5 billion contract for e-mail as-a-service, according to an administration request for quotations.
Proposals are due Dec. 20, with the GSA expected to announce awards in the spring.
According to the RFQ, the contract consists of five lots that will fall under a blanket purchase agreement.
- Lot 1: e-mail as a service
- Lot 2: office automation
- Lot 3: electronic record management
- Lot 4: migration services
- Lot 5: integration services
Lots 1, 4 and 5 are mandatory for the bidders. The other two are optional.
Each lot includes a sub-lot for a ‘government community cloud’, which is a multi-tenant cloud offering for exclusive use by government users with registered .gov or .mil domain addresses.
