USPS seeking cost-reducing SaaS product

The U.S. Postal Service is seeking a software-as-a-service product to help it standardize, automate, and streamline buying supplies, services and equipment.

USPS wants commercial software that provides a flexible and extensible framework, and one that helps the agency achieve its cost reduction targets, the service said.

The solicitation for the eSourcing solution was announced Oct. 24 on FedBizOpps.com.

The software must allow suppliers to submit expressive or conditional rule-based bids, the service ssaid, adding that it must also perform real-time analysis of all buyer and supplier to determine the best allocation of business among suppliers.

The software should also have a reverse auction capability that allows suppliers to submit pricing information in real-time in a dynamic bidding environment, USPS said.

Postal officials want the software to be easy to use, implemented quickly and have a low reliance on information technology resources. The potential software will undergo a technical evaluation and a functional demonstration.
