The Securities and Exchange Commission is updating its strategy for maintaining and modernizing the Edgar system, which is an online database of company financial filings.
At a minimum, the SEC plans to use separate procurements for the operations and maintenance portion and the modernization portion, according to an announcement on FedBizOpps.gov.
The commission is reviewing which of four approaches to use:
1. Procure the work using existing contracts, such as the SEC’s Office of Information Technology Support Services and Applications Operational Support Services contracts.
2. Use upcoming SEC competitions for application management, infrastructure management and/or development/enhancements, such as the Division Information Office Application Modernization Development & Support contracts or the recompete for the Applications Operational Support Services contact.
3. Develop an Edgar specific contract.
4. Use some combination of the first three.
