NITAAC obtains 801 Certification: DOD Assisted Acquisitions Now Much Easier

Homepage Splitbox

NITAAC has obtained 801 certification

NITAAC has obtained 801 certification for fiscal year 2022. This certification will enable NITAAC to support Assisted Acquisition Services for the Department of Defense (DoD). Prior to this, the DoD could only make direct awards on NITAAC’s three Best in Class (BIC) Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts, and each purchase required a waiver. With this new 801 certification, that will no longer be the case.

Update on CIO-SP4 Award and Extension Plans for CIO-SP3 and CIO-SP3 Small Business

CIO-SP4 awards will be announced before November 1, 2022. In addition, NITAAC plans to extend the current CIO-SP3 and CIO-SP3 Small Business contracts for up to one year as needed while CIO-SP4 Contract Holders are onboarded. Extensions will be issued in 3-month increments. This means your customers will have additional time to award task orders under these contracts. Final details will be released as they become available.

Health IT in the Age of COVID

With COVID-19 dominating the headlines for the past two years and now, the foreseeable future, there’s no question that Health IT is at the top of the President’s agenda. Learn more about Health IT here.

Global Supply Chain Issues

The IT Industry is experiencing shortages of microprocessors and key components of many types of IT equipment due to global supply chain issues.  This is causing delays for end items and the performance of some services and orders.  NITAAC urges customers to review their IT needs and anticipate slower than normal delivery and delayed performance of their requirements.  We suggest placing orders as soon as possible for mission-critical needs and expecting longer lead times for products and services.  NITAAC is working with our contract holders and original equipment manufacturers to resolve these issues to assist our government customers.  Please call NITAAC with any questions or problems.
