E69927X - Additional iThenticate Services
The National Science Foundation (NSF) intends to modify its current
contract (NSFDACS10P1333) with iParadigms to procure additional
anti-plagiarism software services (iThenticate) on a sole source basis.
Under the order, the NSF Office of Inspector General will be conducting
a special project to examine for plagiarism of all of the proposals that
NSF has funded (roughly 11,000) during one complete calendar or fiscal
Specifically, iThenticate offers access to an extensive database of
sources, requires minimal training, performs quickly and efficiently,
and maintains the confidentiality of uploaded documents. No other
product on the market, including those introduced since our initial
contract, provides the breadth of content or ease of use as iThenticate.
The period of performance is the date of award through one year. The
proposed contract action is for services for which the government
intends to sponsor with only one source under the authority of FAR
13.106-1(b). This notice is not a request for competitive proposals.
