GSA to release RFIs for new Lines of Business

The General Services Administration plans to requests for information and hold industry days for the three news lines of business—IT infrastructure, geospatial and budget formulation—in mid-April.

To prepare for these events and future needs, GSA hired SiloSmashers Inc. of Vienna, Va., to work with the managing partners on the documentation and analysis of the LOBs through a blanket purchase agreement established in February.

GSA, which acts as the procurement arm of OMB, earlier this month awarded SiloSmashers three task orders worth a combined $1.27 million over the next seven months.

A company official said they began working on the project last week when the Office of Management and Budget held a LOB kick-off meeting.

The official said GSA will release an RFI for each new LOB in early April and then hold industry days April 18 and 19 in the Washington metro area.

SiloSmashers will help the LOB managing partners develop the RFI and perform subsequent analyses of the vendor and agency responses. It also will help develop joint architectures and joint business cases for each business line.
