CIO-SP3 Small Business 8(a)

The Chief Information Officer–Solutions and Partners 3 (CIO-SP3) Small Business 8(a) Government-Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) is a ten (10) year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract. This contract is intended to provide information technology (IT) solutions and services as defined in FAR 2.101(b) and further clarified in the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996. These IT solutions and services include, but are not limited to, health and biomedical-related IT services to meet scientific, health, administrative, operational, managerial, and information management requirements. The contract also contains general IT services partly because medical systems are increasingly integrated within a broader IT architecture, requiring a systems approach to their implementation and a sound infrastructure for their operation.

CIO-SP3 Benefits:

  • 8(a) Small Business Set-aside GWAC
  • Streamlined ordering procedures are based on Fair Opportunity (FAR Subpart 16.505[b][1]) vs. full and open competition
  • No protest on orders under $10 million except on the grounds that the order increases the scope, period or maximum value of the contract (FAR Subpart 16.505 [a][10][i])
  • Varied contract types (Fixed Price, Time and Materials, Cost-Reimbursement) for greater flexibility
  • With a $20 billion ceiling, multiple contract types and the ability to award in modular increments and incorporate performance-based features, CIO-SP3 Small Business offers streamlined ordering and processes that save agencies time, money and resources.
