Notice ID USPTORFI012021
“USPTO is in the process of examining its Information Technology spend and is looking for ways to better manage the spend while realizing significant savings.
A variety of tools and services can, and should, be leveraged to advance this effort; not just IT financial management solutions, but advanced data science techniques/tools (e.g., Robotic Process Automation [RPA], Artificial Intelligence [AI], Natural Language Processing [NLP], and Machine Learning [ML]) as well. A scalable solution that permits flexibility over time, and the critical nature of change management services and employee training is also very important.”
“The USPTO is issuing this RFI to solicit capability statements to determine if sufficient competition exists to meet the government’s requirements. The Government does not intend to award a contract on the basis of this RFI or to otherwise pay for the information solicited.”
“It is USPTO’s objective that any contract following this RFI will provide industry IT expertise with knowledge of federal government regulations to guide our agency through our current and historical IT spending and develop a future plan with USPTO.
