The Department of Energy has begun seeking information on a program that aims to enhance a web-based tool designed to provide a forecast of contract and financial assistance opportunities across DOE.
A notice posted Tuesday on SAM.gov states that DOE is looking for industry sources capable of adding new features, such as alerts, artificial intelligence tools, data analytics and vendor management and matching, to the acquisition and financial assistance forecasting tool.
The DOE Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization is collaborating with the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Office of Partnership and Acquisition Services to identify short and long-term improvements to increase the visibility of contract opportunities for companies looking to do business with the agencies.
DOE will use the information from the market research to inform the development of a performance work statement and acquisition strategy.
Interested parties have until Dec. 21 to respond to the request for information.
