DOD eMall Returns!
Last year, Defense Logistics Agency temporarily suspended awards to their eCommerce site, DoD eMall, while they worked out a structure and system that could handle the product listings and market research needed without being reliant on outside vehicles, such as the GSA Schedule award system.
All those holding their breath should exhale, DLA has released a pre-solicitation for the new DLA DoD eMall Multiple Award Schedule (FBO). As stated on the posting the solicitation “seeks to establish Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) type contracts for various commercially available off-the-shelf (COTS) items which will be ordered through the DOD EMALL system for delivery to DOD EMALL customers worldwide”
The posting goes on to state that eMall will only serve as an interim solution until the replacement is launched, Next Generation e-Commerce Solution (NGe-Com), which may become a “Federal Mall”, or “FedMall”
The estimated launch date of FedMall is the Q3 2015.
FBO makes three draft documents available:
Ramiro is a Certified Federal Contracts Manager (CFCM) and as a Senior Consultant with Coley Government Contract Services, he help clients with GSA schedule management services. He provides advice and ensures client’s GSA contracts are compliant and current.
