WASHINGTON: The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) plans to forgo an RFP process and grant a sole-source contract to Vocus to support its current PR software package.
The EPA said it will award Vocus the contract because the service provider has no resellers and no other company is authorized to host or support such services, according to Federal Business Opportunities documents. The new contract ends February 28, 2013.
EPA records show the agency spends about $70,000 a year on the service. An agency representative declined to comment on the matter.
