Description
At the request of the Federal Communications Commission ("FCC") Office of Managing Director ("OMD"), and to ensure wide exposure of the Universal Service Administrative Company's ("USAC") solicitations, the FCC is alerting the public that USAC is requesting proposals from organizations to perform network vulnerability/risk assessments services in accordance with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), at several locations in the greater Washington DC area including three locations in Northern Virginia and our company headquarters located within the district itself. This engagement will include certification and accreditation, and a security testing and evaluation to portions of the USAC network and its applications. The assessment should begin on or about August 24, 2009 and be completed on or about November 30, 2009. The Request for Proposals (RFP) describes the services requested and provides instructions on how to respond. The RFP is available electronically at http://www.usac.org/about/tools/procurement. This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation. Proposals are being requested and a separate written solicitation will not be issued. No additional notification will be issued by the FCC. ALL COMMUNICATIONS IN REFERENCE TO THESE OPPORTUNITIES SHALL BE THROUGH USAC'S Contracting Office. The RFP describes the services requested and provides instructions on how to respond. --- BACKGROUND: USAC is a not-for-profit Delaware corporation. The FCC has appointed USAC as the permanent administrator of the Universal Service Fund ("USF") and the universal service support mechanisms ("Support Mechanisms"): High Cost ("HC"), Low Income ("LI"), Rural Health Care ("RHC") and Schools & Libraries ("SL") as set forth in Title 47, Part 54, Section 701 of the Code of Federal Regulations. As part of its administrative function, USAC performs, subject to FCC oversight, the billing, collection, and disbursement functions associated with the USF and the Support Mechanisms. Additional information concerning USAC and its administration of the USF and Support Mechanisms can be obtained from USAC's website located at: www.usac.org. USAC is required to perform a vulnerability and risk assessment of its major applications including those maintained by USAC contractors. This engagement must be performed on-site at several locations in the greater Washington DC area including three locations in Northern Virginia and our company headquarters located within the district itself. All proposals submitted in compliance with the instructions and requirements of the RFP will be evaluated. USAC expects to award a contract to the selected IT Contractor (Contractor) no later than August 17, 2009 to perform the functions identified in the RFP. THIS IS NOT A PROCUREMENT BY A FEDERAL AGENCY, GOVERNMENT CORPORATION, GOVERNMENT CONTROLLED CORPORATION OR OTHER ESTABLISHMENT IN THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT. THE CONTRACT AWARDED AS A RESULT OF THIS RFP WILL NOT BE A SUBCONTRACT UNDER A FEDERAL PRIME CONTRACT TO USAC. Complete proposals must be submitted to Mr. Jay Beard, USAC Purchasing Manager, USAC Contracting Office, no later than the date and time set forth in the RFP.
