The US General Services Administration recently released a draft solicitation seeking inputs from vendors on the initial rollout of a government-wide e-commerce platform that will allow agencies to quickly purchase commercial products without going through the government’s traditional procurement process. Vendors can offer their inputs till August 1.

Officials plan to award contracts to multiple vendors to build a proof of concept where agencies would be able to buy basic items like office supplies, tools and hardware. Selected vendors wouldn’t sell the products themselves, but rather build the platforms where other third-party suppliers could compete for government business.

The contract would include a one-year base period, with options to extend up to four more years, according to the documents. GSA plans to begin the pilot by the end of the calendar year and have an initial version of the platform up and running sometime in 2020. (DS)
