IRS Awards Information Support Contracts

The Internal Revenue Service awarded 12 contracts today for information processing support services for the Department of Treasury. The contracts, awarded under the Treasury Information Processing Support Services (TIPPS) procurement, each have the potential for $200 million, though the ceiling of the entire TIPPS procurement is $995 million. This ceiling includes the small business set-aside portion awarded last September.

Andersen Consulting of Washington, DC; Booz, Allen & Hamilton, Inc. of McLean, Va.; Computer Sciences Corp. of Falls Church, Va.; CTA Inc. of Rockville, Md.; Dynamics Research Corp. of Andover, Mass.; DynCorp of Fairfax, Va.; Grumman Technical Services, Inc. of Titusville, Fla.; Logicon Eagle Technology of Arlington, Va.; Science Applications International Corp. of Oak Ridge, Tenn.; Systems Research and Applications Corp. of Arlington, Va.; Unisys Corp. of McLean, Va.; and Vector Research, Inc. of Ann Arbor, Mich. each received a one-year contract with four one-year options to support the IRS's ongoing systems modernization effort.

The contracts provide for a broad range of software and hardware support services in the areas of information systems services, information engineering services, telecommunications and security services, technical financial services, federal information processing acquisition services and socio-technical services.

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 TIPPS procurement contracts are 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, all companies were awarded identical contracts, and will receive work based on their performance.
