IRS Awards Information Support Contract

WASHINGTON - The Internal Revenue Service awarded two $50 million contracts yesterday for information processing support services for the Department of Treasury. Information Management Consultants, Inc. of McLean, Va., and Management Systems Designers of Vienna, Va., each received a 5-year contract to provide a broad range of hardware and software support services, particularly in the area of imaging, under the Treasury Information Processing Support Services (TIPSS) procurement.

While the IRS is expected to be the primary user of the contract, it will also be available to Treasury and its other bureaus. The services covered by the contract include software development, programming, requirements analysis, systems integration, systems maintenance, and other general computer support services for all computer systems, including those developed under the IRS's ongoing Tax Systems Modernization effort.

The contract is the first IRS has awarded based on the "reward for past performance" concept in line with Vice President Gore's National Performance Review. Under this concept, both companies were awarded identical contracts, and will receive work based on their performance.

The contracts were awarded under the Small Business Set Aside portion of the TIPSS acquisition. The remainder of the TIPSS contracts are expected to be awarded by spring of l995.
