This Public Announcement is for the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Information Technology Shared Services - Solution Delivery (ITSS-SD) procurement under ONE IT. This notice is being posted in accordance with the FAA’s Acquisition Management System (AMS), Section Pre-Release of Documents.


The purpose of this follow-up notice to the previous Market Survey (posted on the FAA Contract Opportunities (FAACO) website on November 23, 2012 (#12500)) is to provide multiple updates to firms interested in the procurement formerly referred to as ONE-IT, please note the following:

1. Provide an updated DRAFT Performance-Based Statement of Work (PB-SOW) that reflects significant changes to the scope of work and includes other critical information regarding the FAA’s objectives and requirements for this procurement (see Attachment 3). Accordingly, the name of the procurement has changed from “ONE-IT” to “IT Shared Services Solution Delivery (ITSS-SD)”. This distinguishes it from other ONE IT-related procurements. Note that the FAA will continue to refine its requirements and plans to post timely updates as deemed necessary. Highlights of the PB-SOW changes include:

a. removal of Capability Area A2 – Infrastructure Operations and Support (Section 5.1.2 of prior version released November 23, 2012). These services will be procured separately.

b. include draft language for potential performance standards, incentives and metrics (see Sections 6 through 8 of enclosed PB-SOW).

c. clarify the purpose of Domain B services (see Sections 1.1-1.2, 2.1, and 3.2 of enclosed PB-SOW).

Please note that although these documents are in draft form they continue to provide substantial representation of the FAA requirements.

2. Emphasize the FAA’s cost optimization objectives for the ITSS-SD contract. The IT Shared Services Organization has established a goal to achieve Operational Excellence through a strategy of Optimized Service Delivery, with a specific objective to: “Drive down unit cost of service delivery for selected processes by 10% by FY2015.” (Reference: Office of the Chief Information Officer IT Shared Services Organization OneIT Strategy 2013-2015).

3. Provide the List of Interested Parties based on permissions granted in Market Survey responses. The FAA encourages interested vendors to review this list for teaming considerations, as teaming will be allowed for the ITSS-SD contract.

4. Provide notification of the following formal change in Contracting Officers: the designated Contracting Officer has been changed from Elisa Brown to Tye White.
