OPM issues new RFI for Recruitment One-Stop project

The Office of Personnel Management is asking vendors for ideas to improve its USAJobs Web portal, a sign that the agency could be ready to address the uncertain status of its plans for the site.

The agency has issued a request for information for work on its Recruitment One-Stop e-government project, which oversees the portal. The solicitation seeks vendor plans for improving the federal jobs Web site, www.usajobs.com.

OPM will assess the recommendations as it solidifies its plans for the portal. The agency’s original award for work on the site was overturned by the General Accounting Office.

GAO in May upheld a protest by Symplicity Corp. of Arlington, Va., a losing bidder for the contract to revamp the USAJobs site for Recruitment One-Stop. But the winning bidder, Monster Government Solutions, a subsidiary of TMP Worldwide Government Services of New York, has continued to work on the project under the 10-year, $62 million contract it received.

In its solicitation for ideas about the project, OPM asks vendors to submit details about how they would improve the services offered by Recruitment One-Stop, such as job announcements, online resume building and job applications, and employer services such as database mining. Vendors also are asked to submit new functions they would add to the site.

The RFI is intended to help OPM decide how to move forward with the project, the agency said in the request.

Responses to the request are due April 26.
