GSA IT Schedule 70 to Review Draft Request for Quote (RFQ) for an Earth Observation Solutions Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) under SIN 132-41


The General Services Administration (GSA), Office of IT Schedule Contract Operations established a new Special Item Number (SIN) for Earth Observation Solutions (EOS), SIN 132-41, in July 2017. GSA  plans to establish a multi-agency blanket purchase agreement (BPA) for earth observation products and services under SIN 132-41.

This webinar will walk through the draft Request for Quote (RFQ) and answer questions industry may have to clarify requirements.

GSA is seeking to provide a one-stop-shop as new commercial imagery providers, capabilities, and data solutions emerge in the Information Technology market to meet the needs of federal, state, local, regional, and tribal governments.  By leveraging strategic sourcing and shared services, GSA’s IT Schedule 70 is in compliance with OMB guidance and offers opportunities for cross-government savings.

Purpose and Benefits of Planned Action

The purpose and benefits of creating a BPA under SIN 132-41, Earth Observation Solutions (EOS), are to:
  • Streamline acquisition of repetitive purchases.
  • Increase transparency of what’s been purchased.
  • Address the federal government’s growing need for earth observation services which unite multiple technologies including satellite imagery/communication, distribution and content management, analytics and data products.
  • Enhance IT Schedule 70 offerings for increased visibility and rapid access to commercially available solutions.
  • Provide industry partners the opportunity to differentiate their Earth Observation Solutions.
  • Meet the needs of government agencies to make strategic decisions and bring the full value and benefits of category management to government.
  • Deliver customer agencies the tools and expertise needed through IT Schedule 70 to shorten.

GSA Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) will be hosting a webinar for industry partners to ask questions about the draft RFQ for the EOS BPA.  This webinar is scheduled for Thursday, November 16, 2017 from 1:30pm – 3:00pm EDT.  Use this registration link to participate : https://meet.gsa.gov/eosbpa11162017/event/registration.html
