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
