The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is developing and refining business collaboration scenarios to derive the business requirements for a Unified Business Collaboration System. This system must meet the requirements set forth in Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and be Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 compliant.  

The USPTO is seeking input/comments from interested parties who can provide vendor site presentations and/or provide no cost trial software/hardware, virtual hard drives, and/or hosted solutions with multiple user accounts.

Further clarification and/or definition of the twelve Unified IP Communication System business collaboration scenarios refer to: 

Responses shall be conducted at no cost to the Government.  This is an amendment to DOC-SS-PAPT091006 Unified IP Communication System Request for Information (RFI), not a solicitation for proposals, and accordingly, no contract will be awarded from this announcement.  No reimbursement will be made for any costs associated with providing information in response to this announcement. Telephone calls requesting a solicitation will not be accepted or acknowledged.  Responses to this RFI are voluntary and their source shall be treated as confidential.
