The Contractor shall consider other formats such as PDF, OpenDoc, etc. and shall provide justification to the USPTO for chosen formats. The Contractor shall define XML Schemas, Style sheets, data dictionary, containers, components and all artifacts necessary to define the data sets used for the purposes of dissemination. The Contractor shall provide all pertinent information/documentation necessary to fully define the format of the data sets for any and all infrastructure developed and delivered by the Contractor. For infrastructure located at the USPTO campus, the Contractor shall devise a plan to reduce the footprint of stored and transmitted data sets for easy transmission over the limited data pipes owned by the USPTO. The Contractor may, at their discretion, add additional data pipes to the USPTO arsenal at no cost to the USPTO to meet the data delivery requirements of this contract.
The Contractor shall build and provide two (2) categories of infrastructure to reside at a minimum of two (2) locations as described below:
Such Infrastructure shall extract, collate, format, compress, and otherwise collect patent and trademark bulk data from legacy systems for storage at the USPTO campus for the eventual purpose of dissemination -- thus separating such data from the data sets used for the purpose of examination.
Infrastructure shall include hardware, software and any other necessary components. Data sets collected by this infrastructure shall be provided to one or more external infrastructure(s) (located outside of the USPTO campus) for actual dissemination to the public.
Infrastructure shall disseminate patent and trademark bulk data to the public, at no cost to the USPTO or public. Data sets shall be received from the infrastructure located at the USPTO campus.
Infrastructure may reside at a single location or may be distributed across several locations based on the architecture designated by the Contractor and approved by the USPTO. External infrastructure used to disseminate data to the public shall not reside at the USPTO campus.
Ninety Percent (“90%”) of original source data for this contract resides within Public PAIR content; 10% covers the distribution of existing USPTO patent and trademark bulk data products. Section C.3 (Scope of Work) lists data sets covered by this contract.
