OLAO, Office of Acquisitions engages in NIH and HHS agency-wide mission support opportunities:

  • Long-term Administrative Support Contract (LTASCII)
  • BPSS Business and Profession Support Services contract for the support of NIH wide professional services.
  • PICs - Public Information and Communication services contract for support of NIH Wide communication efforts.
  • NIH Conference, Administrative and Travel Services Contract (NIHCATSIII)

 

LTASC II

The Long-Term Administrative Support Contract II (LTASC II) is a small business set aside IDIQ contract that can be used to obtain commercially provided administrative services on a long-term basis (e.g. at least 12 months on a task order basis) across all Institutes, Centers and Offices (ICs) within the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The LTASC contract vehicle was established in 2010 as a result of the NIH’s need for assistance to assess options to address A-76 competitive sourcing requirements for positions under evaluation. Administrative duties under LTASC II include a range from generic clerical skills (e.g. fielding phone calls, scheduling meetings, taking minutes, generating reports) to administrative duties for executive management. LTASC II will expire in early January 2021, and the LTASC Team is working towards the next iteration – LTASC III.

NIHCATS III

The National Institutes of Health Conference, Administrative, and Travel Services (NIHCATS) III contract vehicle is a small business set aside IDIQ that offers a wide range of administrative, meeting, conference, and travel support services in the U.S. and abroad for all federal agencies. The mission of the NIHCATS III is to provide the right services, qualified external talent, and facilities not otherwise provided by the Government for customers across the federal space.

In fact, NIHCATS II was HHS’s strategic sourcing contract for conference support, and its use was encouraged by HHS leadership.

PICS II

The Public Information and Communication Services (PICS) II contract vehicle is a small business set aside IDIQ that offers ICs at the NIH communications and outreach; graphic design; web and database; materials development and distribution; and exhibit support. The mission of PICS II is to achieve and maintain high quality performance in the areas of media, communication, information dissemination and technology. PICS II is the vehicle OLAO uses to solicit superior communications services, especially where this expertise does not exist in-house. The PICS contract vehicle was established in tandem with the NIH communications community to ensure future customers would receive the wide range of services needed in the ever-evolving modern communications landscape.

NIHBPSS II

The NIH Business and Professional Support Services II (NIHBPSS II) contract is a multiple award partial small business set aside IDIQ available to all ICs and offices within the NIH to purchase business and professional support services on a task order (TO) basis. NIHBPSS II affords customers the ability to order services after requirements materialize, providing NIH with flexibility in both quantities and delivery scheduling.
