GSA to Include Earth Observation Services SIN on IT Schedule 70

The General Services Administration plans to incorporate a new special item number for Earth observation platforms and services into the Information Technology Schedule 70 contract vehicle by early June.

GSA said Friday the inclusion of the Earth Observation Solutions SIN in IT Schedule 70 seeks to provide government agencies a “one-stop-shop” for satellite imagery, analytics, satellite communication, data products and content management services as well as offer vendors an opportunity to differentiate their Earth observation platforms.

GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service will also hold a webinar on May 18 to discuss the new EOS SIN with industry partners.

The agency also hosted an industry day in March a month after it asked industry for feedback on the proposed SIN.
