CIO-SP4 Update 7/11/2023
The Chief Information Officer-Solutions and Partners 4 (CIO-SP4) solicitation has been heavily anticipated by both government and industry, alike. The journey of bringing CIO-SP4 to market has admittedly been a long one, filled with all the expected growing pains of a record setting competitive federal acquisition. With those growing pains, we also have had to contend with a significant rule change by the Small Business Administration (SBA), some staff turnover, and a heavy amount of media coverage – including rumors and other misinformation. Today, we’d like to level set where the solicitation stands relative to the Government Accountability Office (GAO) protests. Read full statement.
