CIO-SP3 Overview

A ten-year multiple-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract, CIO-SP3 is available for use by all government departments and agencies through the issuance of task orders. Task orders can be issued on a fixed-price, cost-reimbursement, or time-and-material/labor hour basis – terms and conditions can be augmented to address your needs and orders. The contract’s ten-year period allows your task order requirement to benefit from multi-year performance or the inclusion of optional periods and optional tasks. Ten separate task areas outline a broad technical scope to provide total IT solutions to individual requirements.
