Contract Award Number: SECHQ115D0037
“This Contract provides SEC Division of Enforcement (ENF) with Litigation Support Electronic Discovery support services, including: (1) Receipt and Logging of Productions, (2) Recommind Application Administration, (3) IT Forensic Lab (Task, (4) Electronic Document Discovery (EDD) Processing and Data Conversion, and (5) Records Management.
This justification is to award a follow-on Contract to CACI as an exception to fair opportunity. The contract will be awarded for the period ending August 31, 2021. This award is required to ensure that ENF continue to receive the required specialized services in the short-term, while a broader Litigation Support Electronic Discovery (LSED) program, that will encompass these services for a greater number of agency offices and divisions, is competed in the coming year.”
“The SEC requires continuing services for ENF’s Litigation Support Electronic Discovery support services, including: Receipt and Logging of Productions, Recommind Application Administration. IT Forensic Lab, Electronic Document Discovery (EDD) Processing and Data Conversion, and Records Management. These services are central to the SEC’s ability to perform mission-critical activities related to enforcing the securities laws and protecting investors, and the contractor providing the services must be capable of performing under significant knowledge and understanding of the SEC’s internal workflows and procedures related to litigation support databases, receipt and logging of electronic productions, use and administration of the Recommind application, the SEC’s IT forensic lab, electronic document discovery (EDD) processing and data conversion, and records management. The total estimated value of the continuation is $12, 450,158.65.”
“It is currently anticipated that a new procurement action for continued support services will be conducted for award by September 2021, which is the end of the new performance period provided for under this justification. The new procurement is expected to encompass the existing requirement, but also consolidate similar requirements for additional SEC offices and divisions. It would be premature to transition to a new, agency-wide consolidated contract for these services at this time, as divisions and offices outside of ENF, currently receive a set of overlapping services under contracts set to expire in the coming year. Additional time is required to develop the agency-wide requirements and to provide an opportunity for internal business processes and workflows from the various offices and divisions to come into alignment.”
