The Department of Veterans Affairs has initiated its search for potential contractors that can help VA develop a content management system as part of its efforts to update its veteran-facing website, VA.gov.
A FedBizOpps notice posted Wednesday says the move is part of VA’s digital modernization strategy that seeks to upgrade its digital tools in order to meet users’ expectations and requirements.
The chosen contractor will deploy the CMS in the VA Enterprise Cloud platform, also known as Amazon Web Services GovCloud, to help agency stakeholders manage content on VA.gov.
The agency will award a contract on a firm-fixed-price and time-and-materials basis that has a six-month base term and two six-month options.
The selected contractor should also build a new content model for the veteran-facing website; implement content governance; write and edit content pages; adhere to search engine optimization best practices; transition content from vets.gov into the CMS; provide improved internal search; and adopt advanced analytics and measurement.
VA will accept responses through Aug. 22, according to the request for proposals.
