The General Services Administration is asking industry for insights on how it can apply software as a shared service to its administrative operations.

The Unified Shared Services Management (USSM) office — a GSA component overseeing the government’s shared services acquisition policy — issued a request for information (RFI) on Jan. 3 on what software solutions industry could provide for administrative services.

“The purpose of this RFI is to understand industry capabilities to provide software as a service across the referenced administrative services and to ask for industry ideas on documentation of government-wide needs (as specified in Section 3b), and public-private partnership funding models by the vendors under GSA Schedule SINs 595-22, 874-6, 520-11, 520-13, 520-22), (sic) OASIS Pools 1 and 2 (unrestricted and small business), Schedule 70 (SINs 132-32/33/52/40) and NAICS Code 541611, 541612, 541211, 541219, 541519, and 511210,” the document said.

USSM is specifically looking for what software enhancements and capabilities providers will be able to offer over the next 24 to 36 months toward administrative shared services, in addition to industry plans for FedRAMP authorization and proposed partnership plans to set up an interoperable system.

The RFI also requests proposed fee-for-service models to stand up the proposed software-as-a-service solution and strategies for leveraging current software systems.

Interested industry parties have until 5 p.m. on Feb. 28 to submit proposals. RFI proposals must be submitted to Natalia Belinsky via email at and to USSM at

For more information, see the RFI posting on FedBizOpps.
