GSA IT Schedule 70 to Incorporate Earth Observation Solutions SIN 132-41

Overview

 

The General Services Administration (GSA), Office of IT Schedule Contract Operations, is establishing a new Earth Observation Solutions (EOS) Special Item Number (SIN) 132-41.   GSA continually seeks to position IT Schedule 70 offerings to provide the latest in emerging technology and solutions.  The earth observation industry has experienced accelerated growth with established companies as well as new entrants and newly deployed and acquired satellites.  

 

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 adding SIN 132-41, Earth Observation Solutions (EOS), are to:

--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 procurement cycles, ensure compliance, and obtain the best value.

Webinar

In addition to this advanced notice posting, GSA FAS will be hosting a webinar for industry partners to learn about the planned changes to add the EOS SIN and ask questions.  The webinar is scheduled for Thursday May 18, 2017 from 10am-11am EST.
