Faa focuses on IT

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has extended until November 30 the deadline for receipt of offers from companies willing to participate in the $2.4 billion bid, to award information technology (IT) services. These are ten-year contracts.

The federal agency announced that it will publish some notes on the incoming offers, giving 20 days to amend the offers, including the required changes. In the meantime, it is possible that the Faa will extend the deadline for the call for bids again. The outcome of the bid was actually expected on June 30, but the seventh extension was reached.

With the announcement of the Innovative Information Technology Procurement for Strategic Sourcing (Itipss) program, the FAA plans to sign 10 contracts with companies large and small. The goal is to standardize the existing 70 and at the same time modernize the technology used in Faa’s facilities: email, messaging, information security, network storage, help desk, mobility and business software.
