The Small Business Administration is looking for information on commercial products that could help the agency manage its procurement and grants management activities.
In a recent request for information
, SBA said it currently processes 200 contracts, 3,000 purchase orders and 300 grants each year.
The agency is looking for an off-the-shelf product that complies with the government's e-procurement standards and can interface with the FedBizOpps application and database.
The product also must be compliant with Federal Financial Systems Information Office requirements, interface with and enable data exchange between SBA's existing Oracle-based financial management system, and support the modeling, analysis, and implementation of workflow management.
SBA will use the RFI as part of its market research and will determine at a later date whether it will issue a formal solicitation.
