Notice Type: Amendment to the Combined Synopsis/Solicitation (posted 2012may30)

This is a total small business set-aside.  The associated North American Classification System (NAICS) code is 541519 and the small business size standard is 150 employees.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) established its Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) for Information Technology (IT) contracts for computer hardware and software products in July 2004, July 2007, and in July 2010.  The USPTO intends to add to its existing ID/IQ Vendors to fulfill its continuing IT requirements for computer hardware and software products and to further competition.   The USPTO expects to make multiple awards resulting from this RFQ. The USPTO's IT product requirements for FY 2011 were approximately $33 million.  There is, however, no guarantee of requirements. All responsible sources may submit a proposal which will be considered by the USPTO.

The Government is seeking a one-stop shopping vehicle, which offers a wide array of computer hardware and software products to include computer hardware, software and licenses, and hardware/software maintenance and related services that are similar to those found under Schedule 70 - General Purpose Commercial Information Technology Equipment, Software, and Services. Vendors are not required to have a General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Supply Schedule contract in order to submit a proposal in response to this RFQ. Examples of items/services that the USPTO may be procuring are:  servers, server racks, color scanners, mass storage units, fiber channel ports and fabric management software for Cisco Systems, dual port fibre channel cards, routers and switches, commercial-off-the-shelf security software, automated tape libraries, data tape cartridges, commercial-off-the-shelf security software, software maintenance, and virus control software, installation of multi-vendor computer equipment, customization of hardware or software, training, and product technical support. The vendor must be able to demonstrate that they can offer the USPTO a vast array of IT Products.  The USPTO is not looking for vendors who can only offer a few products or product brands.  Vendors who can only offer a few products and/or limited product brands will be found unacceptable, and will not be considered for award.  Currently, the USPTO has an existing contract vehicle under which it procures desktop computer hardware.  Items on the desktop computer hardware contract vehicle are excluded from these ID/IQ contracts.

The receipt date and time for proposals is 2:00 p.m. Local Time of the Contracting Officer, Alexandria VA, June 8, 2012. For any hand-delivered proposals, it is noted that the receipt office is in a secured building.  Please call Nathia Casey at 571-272-5467 upon arrival for pickup in the building lobby. Adequate time should be allowed for receipt and pickup of the proposal after arriving at the USPTO.  The point of contact for this solicitation is: Nathia.Casey@uspto.gov, telephone number 571-272-5467.  The secondary point of contact is:  Connie.Lum@uspto.gov, telephone number 571-272-4167.
