Project Name: Legislative Branch Telecommunications Network Agreement


Project Overview: On behalf of multiple Legislative Branch agencies, the Architect of the Capitol (AOC), Washington, DC, hereby notifies all interested offerors of its intent to issue a solicitation (Request for Proposal) for telecommunications services. Specifically, under the administration of the AOC, the Legislative Branch agencies of the House of Representatives, the Senate, Library of Congress, General Accountability Office and Government Printing Office have joined together to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the provisioning of various telecommunications services. Although the list of services below is not all-inclusive, the focus of the resultant Agreement will be:


? Long Distance voice services both domestic and international
? Dedicated Access Facilities ( T-1, ISDN, PRI, SIP, OC)
? Inbound direct termination services
? Inbound toll free (8XX) services
? Audio Conferencing services
? Video Conferencing services
? Network Management and Administrative services
? Billing services
? Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity services and features
? Additional Optional services ( broadband internet, etc)


The AOC contemplates award to one offeror to fulfill this requirement for each of the Legislative Branch Ordering Agencies. The Agreement will consist of a 4 year base period with three (3), 2 year option periods. All work (base and options) is subject to the availability of funds and shall be ordered individually by the Legislative Branch Ordering Agencies on a task order basis.


Offerors are further advised that the AOC is a legislative branch entity and as such is NOT subject to the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR). However, this procurement will be solicited via a Request for Proposal (RFP) as outlined in FAR Part 15, which will result in the Best Value to the Government. Instructions to offerors and the Government's evaluation process will be further detailed in the forthcoming solicitation.


The RFP, and any subsequent amendments, will be issued in electronic format only and will be available for download on or before September 12, 2017 on the Federal Business Opportunities website (www.fbo.gov). Offerors shall submit any/all questions in writing to Mr. Anthony Rowell, AOC Contracting Officer, via email at arowell@aoc.gov.


IT IS THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE OFFEROR TO MONITOR THE FBO WEBSITE FOR ALL CHANGES TO THE SOLICITATION OR FOR INFORMATION RELEASED BY THE AOC. TELEPHONE INQUIRIES WILL NOT BE ACKNOWLEDGED OR ACCEPTED.


Scheduling of a pre-proposal conference is anticipated with additional details forthcoming.
