Commercial E-Commerce Portal: Phase II Requests for Information

Please click here (suppliers selling on commercial e-commerce portals) and here (providers of commercial e-commerce portals) to view the Federal Register notices for the requests for information.

The General Services Administration (GSA) and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) are soliciting information from the suppliers selling on commercial e-Commerce Portals and providers of commercial e-Commerce Portals in order to complete Phase II of the requirements enacted in Section 846 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2018, Procurement through Commercial e-Commerce Portals. In support of this, we have released 2 Requests for Information (RFIs) to help inform our next deliverable.

RFI 1: For suppliers selling on commercial e-commerce portals, to facilitate content submission, GSA and OMB have developed a number of questions grouped around three focus areas: product categories, terms and conditions, and program design. These three areas will impact the results of the analysis required for Phase II, e.g. the terms and conditions questions will further the analysis required in paragraph (E) above.

RFI 2: For providers of commercial e-commerce portals, to facilitate content submission, GSA has developed a number of questions grouped around six focus areas— spending trends, data standards, user experience, cybersecurity,  terms and conditions and proof of concept design. These six areas will impact the results of the analysis required for Phase II, e.g. the terms and conditions questions will further the analysis required in paragraph (E).  

Note: Each question within these RFIs is intended to provide respondents with a general framework for commenting. These questions are not intended to be all-inclusive; other comments and observations are encouraged. You only need to respond to one of these RFIs -- if you are unsure, please select the RFI that you feel most applies.

GSA and OMB requests all comments be submitted by July 20th, 2018 to allow Industry ample time to provide their insights.

We appreciate your continued partnership and look forward to receiving your feedback. For questions, please email Section846@gsa.gov.
