The State Department has begun seeking bids for a potential seven-year, $10 billion indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for information technology services from the commercial sector.
The Evolve procurement vehicle is divided into IT management, cloud and data center, application development, network and telecommunication, and customer and end user support categories, the State Department said Friday.
For each functional area, selected vendors will support a range of cross-functional requirements such as compliance, security, product and project management and modernization, according to a solicitation notice posted on SAM.gov.
A portion of the contract is reserved for small businesses and the department noted that existing IT services provided under the 8(a) program will remain outside the scope of the new acquisition effort.
The deadline for submission of proposals is Jan. 18.
