Symplicity, an 8(a) company based in Arlington, Va., has won a $17.5 million contract to provide information technology services to the Federal Business Opportunities Web site, FedBizOpps.gov, which provides information on contracting opportunities.
The General Services Administration announced Symplicty's win on the site today.
The contract calls for re-engineering the site, hosting, maintenance and related services. It spans a three-year base period and five one-year options.
"We're very excited about it," a Symplicity spokesman said. "We really believe this can revolutionize government procurement."
However, the spokesman said it is too early to detail Symplicity's plans.
FedBizOpps evolved from the old Electronic Posting System in 1999 and 2000, becoming the designated central repository of information on contract opportunities throughout the federal government in 2001. It is where contractors and agencies go to find requests for proposals, modifications to RFPs, updated information on proposal deadlines and similar information.
