Award will be made to the firm whose quote is determined to offer the lowest price for the requested brand name items. Only the brand name items listed in this announcement will be considered. Firms interested in this requirement are requested to submit a quote to the point of contact listed below no later than Wednesday, May 14, 2014 at 12:00 pm, EST.
The brand name item identified in this announcement is needed by the NSF. Moving to an authentication solution from a different vendor would entail very high resource costs. Also there would be detrimental effects to the schedule of other critical infrastructure projects. Changing to another authentication system could entail risks to the availability of NSF IT operations while the new authentication product implementation is in progress, and being tested.
All responsible sources are encouraged to submit a quote for consideration by the NSF.
