Labor Department feels out agencies for disability employment campaign

The department issued a request for information for a firm to support its Campaign for Diversity Employment.

WASHINGTON: The Labor Department has released an information request before potentially awarding an IDIQ contract to a small business next year. 

The department’s office of procurement services is seeking information for a contract for a firm to potentially work with its office of disability and employment policy on strategic communications, according to a performance work statement.

The office’s policy communications and outreach division oversees the Campaign for Disability Employment, which challenges "negative perceptions about disability employment by increasing knowledge and understanding of the skills and talents of people with disabilities," it said.

If a contract is awarded, the winning firm could "support ongoing and future strategic communications projects or initiatives," such as the office’s website, among other responsibilities.

Services could include consulting, content development, education and outreach, event support, and customer service, according to the documents.

The account is expected to run for a year with four annual renewal options, and the office could make an award by next August. A task order for the campaign should be made at the same time. A budget was not disclosed.  

Responses to the request for information should be submitted by November 30, according to the documents.
