The Information Technology and Communication Services (ITACS) Department at Naval Postgraduate School (NPS), Monterey, California, is looking for a commercial solution to fulfill the requirement of Content Management System,  on a small business set-aside basis, provided two or more qualified small businesses respond to this sources sought notice with information sufficient to support a set-aside.  Be advised that the U.S. Government will not be able to set aside this requirement if two or more small businesses do not respond with information to support the set-aside.  We encourage all small businesses, in all socioeconomic categories (including, 8(a) Business Development Program, Small Disadvantage Business, Historically Underutilized Business Zone, Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned, Women-Owned Small Business concerns), to identify their capabilities in meeting the requirement at a fair market price.
