The Social Security Administration (SSA) is conducting a market survey to determine the availability and technical capability of qualified businesses with experience developing mobile applications for the iPhone and other mobile phone platforms.

The Government reserves the right to compete any acquisition resulting from this survey, or to issue a direct award to an 8(a) firm, based on the responses received.

Sources must sufficiently demonstrate the capability to meet these requirements and must provide detailed experience and qualifications in all previous work pertinent to this effort. Vendors who believe they have the capability to successfully deliver these services are invited to submit information concerning their company's capabilities to SSA. Simple marketing information or incomplete responses will not be considered. Reference to vendor websites is not considered a valid response.

This is not a request for proposals and the government does not intend to pay for information submitted. Respondents will not be notified of the results of the evaluation of the information received.
