“The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), a bureau of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, is seeking information from industry to assist with the development and planning of a new requirement for Legal Holds, Identification Preservation and Collection (HIPC) support services…”
“SUMMARY OF REQUIREMENT:
This is a new requirement for Legal Holds, Identification, Preservation, and Collection (HIPC) support services. The eDiscovery HIPC activities are currently being performed by the OCC’s Chief Counsel’s Office legal staff and the eDiscovery Data Management Support (EDMS) team, staffed by five (5) Information Technology Services employees and contractors. Performance of these activities currently involves a combination of manual processes and the use of limited automation; however, the OCC requires a fully integrated automated solution.
GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF WORK:
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 requires Contractor support 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 requires 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 Chief Counsel’s Office (CCO) practice areas; and (2) Information Technology Services (ITS) employees and contractors. The OCC is seeking professional services to design, implement, and operate the integrated solution as a managed service, as well as to train its users on the new solution.
