Schedule 70 adding sections for health IT, cybersecurity
After the release of a special item number (SIN) for cloud products and services on IT Schedule 70, the General Services Administration is now looking to create two more SINs for targeted technologies, namely health IT and cybersecurity.
The Office of Integrated Technology Services (ITS) plans to issue a request for information in the next two weeks asking agencies and industry to comment on what needs to be included in a health IT SIN, according to Soundjata Carty, contracting officer at the ITS Office of IT Schedule Programs.
A cybersecurity-specific SIN is also in the works, with an RFI expected before the end of the year, Carty said at the June 2 Federal IT Acquisition Summit hosted by 1105 Media.
“For health IT, we’re looking at things like interoperability and what actually makes health IT for both federal and civil health care,” Carty said, noting the sector hit $6 billion in 2014, up 14 percent over the prior year.
