This is a Notice of Intent to Sole Source. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Office of Contracting, on behalf of the Office of Information Technology (OIT), Applied Technology Division (ATD), plan to negotiate a sole-source contract with Eagle Ray, Inc. for the Architecture and Design Services II (ADS II) Bridge to continue services for four months. Currently, Eagle Ray, Inc. is providing these architecture and design services. An additional re-compete acquisition is expected to be completed by the end of October 2014.

It is expected that by achieving these goals USCIS will be able to leverage investments across the agency; speed the pace of development; reduce cost; move to the cloud; reduce risk by spreading code development among competing vendors; streamline process overhead; increase productivity, and control quality.
