Notice ID 2031JW20N00002_1
“The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is contemplating establishing a contract under NAICS Code 518210 – Data Processing, Hosting, and Related Services, and the Small Business Standard is $32.5 million, PSC Code D318 IT and Telecom- Integrated Hardware/Software/Services Solutions, Predominantly Services and is issuing this notice in order to solicit responses from capable sources and requesting capability statements to ensure sufficient competition exists to meet the Government’s requirements.”
“This is a new requirement for Legal Hold, Identification, Preservation, and Collection (HIPC) support. The eDiscovery HIPC activities are currently being performed by the OCC’s Chief Counsel’s Office legal staff and the eDiscovery Data Management Support team (EDMS), staffed by five (5) Information Technology Services employees and contractors. See draft SOW for additional background on this requirement.
“The OCC is engaged in a multi-year and multi-step effort to create an end-to-end, cloud-based eDiscovery program consisting of a fully integrated tool set, covering the full scope of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM). Previous efforts have included: (a) the 2019 implementation of a cloud-based Relativity solution for document processing and document review; and (b) the augmentation and realignment of current staff that perform the hands-on identification, preservation and collection activities of the OCC, known as the “eDiscovery support services.” The Relativity solution, which is externally hosted by an integrator, is known within the OCC as the Alternative Litigation Support System (ALSS). The HIPC solution is expected to interoperate with the OCC’s Relativity solution.
To modernize and complete its end-to-end, fully integrated cloud-based eDiscovery program, the OCC seeks a Contractor with significant and demonstrated experience in implementing commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions to address organizations’ identification, collection, and preservation needs. For the left side of the EDRM, the OCC seeks a managed service supported by a single suite of tools, or a collection of fully integrated tools. The HIPC solution is intended to be used enterprise-wide by: (1) legal staff primarily in Litigation and Enforcement, but occasionally in the other CCO practice areas; and (2) Information Technology Services employees and contractors.”
