A research request was recently provided to OS AI from a Columbia, MD-based woman-owned small business technology consulting firm seeking details related to an upcoming Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services RFP to drive testing efforts for this system which provides Medicare beneficiary information to Medicare providers, suppliers, and their authorized representatives for the purposes of determining beneficiary eligibility. If the last competition, which drew 17 bids, is any indication, there will be a lot of interest in this one.  

We at OrangeSlices AI do believe in the need for more and better-informed competition, so provided below are 1) opportunity details; 2) some key points of contact; 3) related pursuit/capture data; and 4) the odds of the incumbent winning the contract back.    

Competitive Details related to the predecessor contract: 

  • Funding Agency: Department of Health and Human Services / CMS  
  • Incumbent: Sparksoft 
  • Contract Vehicle: This was last competed using the CMS SPARC.  
  • Contract Details and Spend to Date for Prior Contract – Award ID 75FCMC19F0002 

OS AI Note: The most recent forecast states that the next iteration of this contract will be competed as a small business set-aside action on GSA MAS using NAICS 541512. This contract was recently added to the May forecast, and the RFP is tentatively expected to be released in early September. The incumbent contract is set to expire in May of 2024.
