How can I find IT contract opportunities at HHS?
Information technology (IT) is the area where we receive the most small business inquiries, so the competition is substantial. When presenting your capabilities to potential customers, we suggest that you tailor your IT capabilities to specific functions, i.e., IT relating to medical analysis, data base management, or IT related to security.
In addition to the above recommendation, you should be aware that HHS has several “Multiple Award, Indefinite Delivery” contracts for IT services. These contracts, in addition to the significant use of GSA Schedules, make identification of opportunities challenging. If you do not have a GSA schedule contract, we strongly recommend you contact GSA to obtain one. We also recommend that you contact major prime contractors for potential subcontracting opportunities.
Please review our annual Service Contract Inventory for more information about contracts procured at HHS and its operating divisions.
