About the procurement
Given the fact that things are not yet determined, on the NOAA official website is specified that the information distributed by incredible resources not related to the government regarding this contract opportunity are not to be trusted. Contractors are invited to rely only in the information released in the FBO website.
Furthermore, the below listed information revealed by the agency for the industry:
- AGO and the NOAALink Program Office have begun acquisition planning for NOAA Mission IT Services contracts to determine the acquisition strategy for meeting all of NOAA’s future IT services requirements.
- Until that strategy is finalized, NOAALink will continue to use other 8(a) vehicles to meet NOAA’s 8(a) requirements.
- Regardless of the eventual acquisition strategy, existing 8(a) requirements will stay 8(a) when re-competed with similar scope.
These are all available data, until the next announcement by the government.
