The U.S. House of Representatives is developing a contract to modernize its existing data center facilities and build new facilities to accommodate legislative branch data needs.
The work would include gathering together all legislative tenants, general management oversight, technical oversight, installation services and support monitoring before and after the facilities are built, and service-level enforcement.
The facilities will house House data center operations and must be able to support data center operations for the Library of Congress, Architect of the Capitol, U.S. Capitol Police, Congressional Budget Office, Government Accountability Office, Government Printing Office, and other legislative branch agencies.
The House expects the contract to last six years.
The House released the request for proposal Oct. 27. Responses are due by Nov. 25.
