1. Introduction and Background
The Postal Regulatory Commission (Commission) is an independent agency that has exercised regulatory oversight over the Postal Service since its creation by the Postal Reorganization Act of 1970, with expanded responsibilities under the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act of 2006. The Commission promotes high quality universal mail service for the American people by ensuring Postal Service transparency, accountability, and compliance with the law, particularly on its rates, product offerings, service quality, and competition as a government entity. The Commission is the primary regulator of the Postal Service and provides analyses on postal financial operations to Congress, stakeholders, and the general public. The Commission’s job of regulating the Postal Service, the nation’s second largest civilian employer, which is currently facing significant financial challenges, could not be more important than it is now. The Commission is composed of five Commissioners, each of whom is appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate for a term of six years.
Assisting the Commission is a staff with expertise in law, economics, finance, statistics, and cost accounting. The Commission is organized into four operating offices:
• Office of Accountability and Compliance (OAC)
• Office of the General Counsel (OGC)
• Office of Public Affairs and Government Relations (PAGR)
• Office of the Secretary and Administration (OSA)
The Commission maintains an independent office for its Inspector General.
OAC (39 CFR 3002.12) is responsible for technical analysis and formulation of policy recommendations for the Commission in both domestic and international matters. It provides the analytic support for Commission review of rate changes, negotiated service agreements, classifications of new products, post office closings, amendments to international postal treaties and conventions, among other issues.
The General Counsel (39 CFR 3002.13) directs and coordinates the functions of the OGC and is directly responsible for the counseling and advisory services set forth in 39 CFR 3000.735-102. In accordance with 3001.8 of the rules of practice, the General Counsel does not appear as an attorney in hearings in any proceeding before the Commission and takes no part in the preparation of evidence or argument presented in such hearings.
PAGR (39 CFR 3002.15) serves as the public face of the Commission. As such, it is the Commission’s primary resource in support of public outreach and education, media relations, and relationships with Congress, the United States Postal Service, and other government agencies. PAGR provides information for consumers and responds to their inquiries; informal complaints regarding individual rate and service inquiries are referred to the Consumer Advocate of the Postal Service. PAGR staff also work closely with members of Congress and their staff.
OSA (39 CFR 3002.11) provides management and staff support to the Commission’s operational offices (including the Office of Inspector General), the Commission’s strategic plan, and various initiatives of the Executive Branch. OSA ensures that the Commission has the physical, financial, technological and human capital infrastructure needed to accomplish its mission. The effort led by OSA provides financial management, records management, administrative and organizational support, planning and human capital resources for the Commission.
The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) (39 CFR 3002.16) was established in June, 2007, as required by an amendment to the Inspector General Act of 1978 included in the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act of 2006 (Public Law 109-435 sec. 605).
2. Objective
The purpose of this SOW is for the OSA to procure contracting services to conduct an independent assessment of the Commission’s General Support System (GSS). This includes the Security Assessment & Authorization (SA&A, formerly Certification and Accreditation (C&A)) activities, which are performed in accordance with applicable regulations and guidelines, address information security throughout the lifecycle of a system, and ensure adequate documentation to allow the Authorization to Operate (ATO) for the system.

3. Scope
The Commission requires contracting services to conduct an independent assessment of the Commission’s GSS. This includes the SA&A activities, which are performed in accordance with applicable regulations and guidelines, address information security throughout the lifecycle of a system, and ensure adequate documentation to allow the ATO for the system, based on best practices in accordance with applicable guidance and regulations.
The Commission’s GSS is currently rated moderate, according to the FIPS 199 criticality rating. The GSS system is required to be in compliance with Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-130 and Appendix III, Management of Federal Information Resources; OMB Memorandum 04-04, E-Authentication Guidance for Federal Agencies; OMB Memorandum 06-16, Protection of Sensitive Agency Information; Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) 2014, 44 U.S.C. §§ 3541-3549; Department of Homeland Security (DHS) mandates and directives; National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publications (NIST SP).

The GSS is the Commission’s document, dockets, and records management system, consisting of approximately 100 workstations (various thin clients and personal computers (PCs), 30 Microsoft (MS) Windows Servers (2008 & 2012), MS Security Center, MS Active Directory, MS Exchange, Cisco Catalyst Switches and ASA Firewalls, and two external website servers.

However, the vendor’s work/task plan to implement the scope of work is at the discretion of the vendor and should be included as part of your capabilities. Acceptance of the proposed deliverables is subject to the approval of the Commission.

9. Assistance from the Commission
The Commission will provide the contractor with background documents and data, as well as make the IT staff available to answer any questions the contractor may have while completing the deliverables.
10. Place of Performance
Commission’s office at 901 New York Avenue NW, Suite 200W, Washington DC, 20268 and the contractor’s place of business when necessary.
11. Quality Control
As a small-agency, the Commission has found that contractors can contribute significantly to the Commission and its mission success. Whenever the Commission awards a contract, it expects to receive top quality service. This section provides the crucial foundation for identifying, measuring and ensuring quality standards for consultative services.
The contractor will provide information, guidance, and support to the Commission for its Quality Assurance (QA) of the services provided under the contract. QA is a systematic and planned pattern of actions taken to ensure that necessary technical requirements are established, that the deliverables conform to these requirements, and that acceptable performance is achieved. Thus, the contractor will help the Commission verify that the contractor’s own Quality Control (QC) is sufficient and that their deliverables meet the agreed upon criteria. To plan and conduct QC, the contractor considers among other factors the generic criteria listed in the next paragraph.
A useful service for the government is delivered in a timely manner and thus the quality of performance exhibited by the contractor will depend on their ability to deliver their services by established deadlines. The Commission expects accuracy of the services and deliverables rendered on time by the contractor. Procedures and communication between the contractor and the Commission concerning the contract shall be unmistakably clear to avoid misunderstandings and ambiguities. The procedures and deliverables of the contractor shall be consistent and in compliance with this statement of work, and shall result in services rendered that effectively meet the Commission’s needs. The contractor’s work shall be done in an efficient manner, and their services under the contract shall meet the highest standards (e.g., user friendly, innovative, and provide the best value to the government).
With the signatures of the contractor and the Contracting Officer on a finalized contract and any associated task orders, the contractor certifies that it can meet the quality standards and criteria as cited within the agreed-upon cost framework. For substandard contractor performance under the contract where delays, cost overruns as well as deviations from the agreed upon acceptable quality levels occur, the contractor will perform rework of the deliverables at no additional cost to the Government. An example of a delay that deviates from an acceptable quality level would be where timelines and contract specifications are not implemented, requiring rework of deliverables and additional cost. If the Commission is responsible for the delays or cost overruns, the Commission will incur the additional cost.
12. Commission Rights
The Commission reserves the following rights:
a. The Commission reserves the right to amend this RFP, and/or to make no award or cancel this RFP.
b. The Commission reserves the right to accept or reject any or all proposals received as a result of this solicitation, to negotiate and award separately with competing respondents, and to accept that proposal which, in its judgment, represents the best value to the Commission.

c. The Commission reserves the right to make a full or partial award in response to this RFP.
d. At any time prior to the deadline for submission of bids, the Commission may amend this RFP by issuing addenda. Any addendum issued shall be part of this document and shall be communicated in writing to all who have obtained this RFP directly from the Commission. To give prospective contractors sufficient time in which to consider an addendum in preparing their bids, the Commission may, at its discretion, extend the deadline for the submission of offers.
e. The Commission reserves its right to rescind an offer at any time for any reason.
f. Pre-award Survey: The Commission reserves the right to perform a pre-award survey that may include, but is not limited to: (1) interviews with individuals to establish their ability to perform contract duties under the project conditions; (2) a review of the prime contractor’s financial condition, business, and personnel procedures; and, site visits to the offeror’s institution.
