Description

This is for RFP DG1335-07-RP-0050.     The Department of Commerce/National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) on or about March 13, 2007 to provide services in support of the Digital-to-Analog Converter Box Coupon Program authorized by section 3005 of the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005. The Coupon Program provides for distribution and redemption of coupons that consumers may apply toward the purchase of digital-to-analog converter boxes. The converter boxes will enable consumers to watch over-the-air television broadcasts on analog televisions once television stations cease analog broadcasting on February 17, 2009, as required by law. The services required cover three broad functional areas: (1) consumer education and communications, (2) systems processing (e.g., determine consumer eligibility, coupon distribution and activation, and certify retailers and provide training materials), and (3) financial processing (e.g., administer the coupon authorization for redemption and retailer payment process, and perform independent auditing).

The Coupon Program components require expertise across a variety of fields. NTIA encourages potential Offerors to include expertise from small businesses as well as large businesses to provide the best mix of resources to enable NTIA to execute the Coupon Program efficiently and effectively.

NTIA plans to host a Bidder's Conference on March 26, 2007.     For further information, contact Diane Trice at diane.trice@noaa.gov.       Details will also be provided on NTIA website (www.ntia.doc.gov ).

All contractors doing business with the US Government must be registered with the Central Contractor Registry (CCR). For additional information and to register in CCR please access the following web site: http:///www.ccr.gov/.
