Notice ID: NOI-2081060
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) intends to negotiate on a sole source basis with GP Strategies Corporation. DUNS 047799267, GSA Contract No. 47QRAA21D005R, 11000 Broken Land Parkway, Suite 200, Columbia, MD 21044-3555.
NIAID has developed the NIAID Learning Hub as an automated solution to help staff efficiently manage and fulfill their training requirements such as the federally mandated training specific to the divisions they support. The Learning Hub uses data from several different data sources. One of the key data sources is the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Learning Management System (LMS). NIAID requires that the vendor supports automated data extracts based on government defined business rules. LMS data is not readily accessible for NIAID or for other ICs, therefore the support from the vendor for streamlining data extracts will allow NIAID Learning Hub to leverage this data.
GP Strategies was awarded a Federal Supply Schedule order in 2018 to develop custom code for an interface between LMS and the NIAID Learning Hub to allow for automated data extracts. GP Strategies has produced data extracts since then that NIAID has successfully utilized to feed the Learning Hub. Because GP Strategies developed the first version of this interface and has maintained the code to compensate for any changes in LMS, they are uniquely qualified to provide continuity of service without having to rewrite the code from scratch. In addition, they can now fulfill follow-on requirements for additional data and expanded functionality. In the interest of economy and efficiency, the new work is a logical follow-on to the original FSS order placed in 2018.
