EPA opts against regional office outsourcing

The Environmental Protection Agency has decided to keep several of its offices' IT functions in-house following a competition among private contractors for these services.

By CBR Staff Writer

Last year the agency announced competitions for services at three of its regional offices, under provisions of the Office of Management and Budget Circular A-76.

Services up for proposal included geographical systems and computing and database management in the Atlanta office, application development, training, and LAN administration in San Francisco, and data entry and reporting in Kansas City, Kansas.

According to the rules, government agencies must evaluate at least three vendors’ proposals for each competition. After its analyses, the EPA last week found that outsourcing wouldn’t be cost-effective and decided to keep the services within the department.

The EPA, however, still has huge contracts for a range of IT functions such as application work, data services, and systems integration and engineering with outsourcing firms including IBM, CSC and Lockheed Martin.
