Justice issues A-76 request

The Justice Department is requesting that industry and government partners work together on a bid, according to a request for information issued March 6.

Under the Office of Management and Budget’s Circular A-76, which governs competitive sourcing, Justice has created a new team of federal employees called Justice Award Winning Solutions (JAWS).

The team wants to win a services contract to provide services that support parts of the department’s Office of the Chief Information Officer, the RFI states.

JAWS, designated a “Most Efficient Organization” under A-76, wants help developing a proposal to provide infrastructure, operational and security support services for parts of the office’s Operations Services Staff based on requirements set out in a draft Performance Work Statement.

Interested parties have until the close of business March 20 to submit their written responses. More detail about response contents can be found at here.

Applicants can direct general questions to Bob Miller at bob.jaws.@comcast.net and procurement questions to Henry Wong at henry.wong@usdoj.gov.

Justice is following the Energy Department’s lead in using A-76 to create a public/private team to win a federal contract. Last July, Energy became the first to use such a partnership to win a competitive sourcing deal.

Usually, vendors compete against a federal procurement team to deliver the most cost-effective deal.
