Coalition Comments on GSA's Proposed Health IT (SIN)
On July 7, 2015, the Coalition submitted comments on a proposed change that would add Health IT Special Item Number (SIN) to the IT Schedule 70 contract. While the Coalition supports GSA’s efforts to explore new ways to enhance its acquisition offerings for customer agencies, there is concern that the addition of a Health IT SIN would duplicate current IT offerings through GSA and currently available GWACS. Additionally, the proposed change would add costs to both government and industry, and fragment Schedule 70 as a total solution. Upon review of the RFI for the Health IT SIN, it is not clear that the proposal would provide increased value for GSA or its customers. The Coalition recommends that GSA enhance its outreach to its agency customers in the Federal healthcare market instead. To view the comments, click
