GPO goes digital

The Government Printing Office is looking for enterprise architecture consulting support services as it moves to a new Future Digital System.

This system will let federal content creators develop and submit content that can be preserved, authenticated, managed and delivered upon request. All known federal government documents within the scope of GPO's Federal Depository Library Program will be included in the system.

The contractor will help with planning, building and transitioning to this new digital platform. Responses are due by March 7. Contact Nathan Wheeling at nwheeling@gpo.gov.

The agency intends to issue multiple-award contracts for one year with up to four one-year option periods. It expects to issue the request for proposals about March 4. Responses are due by April 4. Contact Karen Harper at krose@ibb.gov.
