The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is conducting market research in order to deter-mine the capabilities of vendors to meet the requirements of the FCC's financial system modernization initiative, which is known as the Core Financial System Replacement (CFSR) Project. The FCC is interested in identifying viable sources and acquisition strategies for commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) financial management software, system integration services, and application hosting services.
The FCC plans to acquire all services and software through a single acquisition process that will result in the award of one contract. The FCC plans to acquire the required software and services from an OMB designated federal government shared service provider (SSP) or by placing an order with a commercial vendor. All software and services will be obtained though a single public-private competition that will result in the selection of one SSP or one prime commercial vendor. Selection of the service provider will be con-ducted in accordance with the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) memorandum, Competition Framework for Financial Management Lines of Business Migrations, dated May 22, 2006, the Financial Systems Integration Office (FSIO) FMLoB Migration Planning Guidance [Version 1], dated September 13, 2006, and applicable provisions of the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR).
