Welcome to NOAALink! We look forward to working with you.
The NOAALink Program would like to remind you that any updates about our upcoming actions and their timelines will be communicated via this website. This is the only website that contains official information about our pre-acquisition activities.
We were informed by several interested vendors that procurement-related websites not federally supported or endorsed estimate our timelines based on their own assumptions. While NOAALink respects your choice to use these websites, we would like to remind you that the NOAALink website is the only official website for all of our activities. NOAALink plans to give industry proper preparation time for any posted action.
Please note the following status:
- 8(a) Pool Re-compete
Strategy Updated 9/2/2015
- Due to unforeseen contingencies, NOAA must postpone the anticipated solicitation release date for the NOAALink 8(a) pool re-compete action. However, to continue to support the program, the Small Business pool refresh action will now be solicited first and the 8(a) re-compete will follow.
- The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Acquisitions and Grants Office, in coordination with the Small Business Administration, intends to re-compete the NOAALink 8(a) track under GSA schedule 70 SIN 132 -51 Information Technology Professional Services. The NAICS code for this action will be 541519 with a size standard of $27.5 million. NOAA will require all offerors to re-certify their 8(a) status in accordance with SBA regulations and are planning to use an advisory, multi-step process.
- Currently, the NOAALink program does not have a projected release date for the 8(a) re-compete solicitation, however, it is anticipated to be released in 1QFY16.
