The General Services Administration has reopened its contract for e-mail as a service, which could be worth $2.5 billion.
GSA lost on two of four counts of a bid protest filed in October and has decided to reopen the competition by releasing a new request for quotations.
Proposals are due Dec. 20, with awards expected in the spring.
The RFQ lays out five lots for the contract, which will be a blanket purchase agreement under GSA’s Schedule 70. The five lots are:
- Lot 1: E-mail as a service
- Lot 2: Office automation
- Lot 3: Electronic record management
- Lot 4: Migration services
- Lot 5: Integration services
Lot 1, e-mail as a service, is mandatory for the bidders, as is migration services and integration services. The other two lots are optional.
