Attention Industry Partners: Identity Protection Services SIN is ready for Offers

Attention PSS Schedule Holder and Industry Partners,


The recently redefined SIN 520-20, Data Breach Response and Identity Protection Services, is now ready to receive offers. The modification and refresh to the Professional Services Schedule (PSS) solicitation was completed on November 16, 2017. This allows firms to submit offers and modifications under SIN 520-20, formerly known as Comprehensive Protection Solution.


Today, SIN 520-20 provides customized solutions integrating credit monitoring services; risk assessment and mitigation services; independent risk analysis; and data breach analysis. The SIN allows the federal community to secure identity theft protection services with state-of-the-art protection services and flexibility to obtain services specific to their needs.


Pre-qualified existing PSS Schedule holders are encouraged to submit the appropriate modification to be able to provide these types of services.


New firms interested in providing these services are strongly encouraged to review the revised solicitation (FCO-00CORP-0000C) and submit their offers.


Modifications to existing contracts and new offers received will be assigned to a special team of contracting officers working to expedite the evaluation and award process. Note to existing PSS holders - once your modification has been completed, the contract will go back to your originally assigned Contracting Officer.


As PSS secures a robust and competitive industry base under SIN 520-20, the existing IPS Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPA) will be sunset. GSA will notify agency customers the SIN is the preferred ordering mechanism for identity protection services. Until that time, the current IPS BPAs remain as the preferred source in accordance with OMB Memo M-16-14. Please be aware the OMB memorandum will be updated to reflect SIN 520-20 as the preferred source once the industrial pool is large enough to allow for adequate competition at the task order level. This process will ensure continuous support is available.
