Additional proposal instructions for identity protection services (SIN 541990IPS)
These additional proposal instructions are also known as IPS Requirement Document 1C.
Besides the standard solicitation proposal requirements, offerors must include a technical proposal and detailed System Security Plan, which is also known as IPS Requirement Document 1C.
Section 1 — Technical proposal
Your technical proposal is a narrative detailing the following:
- Firm’s general management approach to providing each of the required services described in IPS Requirements Document 1A, Section I [PDF - 462 KB].
- Demonstration of how firm will provide services required, including compliance with all required standards throughout the period of performance.
- A detailed System Security Plan [DOCX - 7 MB] will be submitted in accordance with NIST SP 800-53 (latest revision) using the attached template. The firm’s responses will be required to be complete and clear with each element addressed. Failure to follow the plan or complete any segment of the plan will result in rejection of a firm’s offer. It is noted that if a specific plan is not requested at the task order level, the firm will be required to utilize the same template awarded at the GSA contract level.
The ordering agency may require ancillary documents at the task order level, in addition to the System Security Plan.
If your plan does not follow, or simply parrots back, the security requirements of NIST SP 800-53, we will reject your offer.
If the ordering agency needs changes or updates to the approved System Security Plan at the task order level, you are required to submit a copy of the revised plan for the GSA IPS program manager to review and incorporate it after the ordering agency approves it.
Section 2 — Technical proposal for additional services
Firms must indicate in their proposal whether or not they are proposing to provide additional services. If so, there are no additional technical proposal requirements, but you must qualify and be awarded SINs 561450 and 541990RISK in your Multiple Award Schedule contract.
