About CIO-SP3 SB > CIO-SP3 SB Contract

Using the CIO-SP3 SB Contract

Prior to award, CIO-SP3 SB contract holders underwent a comprehensive review process, including dimensions such as technical capabilities, past performance, price, and cost. Such screening enables customers to buy quickly and with confidence. The NITAAC online system (e-GOS) streamlines the acquisition process with automatic distribution, built-in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) guidance, and more. Customers can select awardees in as little as 30 days.

NITAAC offers the following program benefits to all customers:

  • Easy-to-use, secure web-based e-GOS ordering system for automated task order competition, set-aside, management, awardee selection and notification
  • No special "Delegation of Procurement Authority" is required by NITAAC
  • Customer Support Center provides 1-hour response to any contractual, technical or procedural question
  • 1-day turnaround on free, comprehensive SOW/SOO assessment for every task order assures quality responses
  • Free training on GWACs, FAR 16, NITAAC contracts and NITAAC online ordering systems; certification  for 2 CLPs awarded
  • Streamlined ordering and procedures under FAR Subpart 16.505 save time, money and resources
  • Task orders placed directly by agency with end-to-end management by procuring CO
  • Task order competition drives rates even lower
  • Customized terms, conditions and labor categories easily added at the task order level

NITAAC’s online ordering system, e-GOS, streamlines the ordering process in a few easy steps:

  • Customer submits request for proposal (RFP)
  • NITAAC reviews scope and releases to eligible contract holders
  • Optional question-and-answer period follows
  • Contract holders submit proposal
  • Customer evaluates and selects awardee
  • Contracting Official prepares award in agencies’ contract writing system (e.g., PRISM), using the CIO-SP3 SB contract number
  • Contracting Official loads award documents in e-GOS and submits to winning bidder

Processing Fee

NIH is required to collect an NIH Contract Access Fee (NCAF) from its customers to reimburse the cost of operating and administering the CIO-SP3 SB contract. NIH has determined this fee to be 0.75% charged against all task orders and applied to the total award value for contractor performance. The total award value is all-inclusive: labor; fees, including award fees and incentive pools; and other direct costs (ODC), including travel. The NCAF is included in all proposals as a separate contract line item.
