FEDLINK INFORMATION ALERT 2005-3

TO: FEDLINK Members
FROM: Kathryn Mendenhall, Interim Executive Director
DATE: February 22, 2005
SUBJECT: FEDLINK Awards Serials BOAs for FY2006

FEDLINK has just announced seven basic ordering agreements (BOAs) for 2006 serials subscription services. (Vendors and contact information follow.) Using a competitive procurement to determine vendors' ability to provide full serials subscription services to federal libraries, FEDLINK established these agreements with leading serials agents to streamline procurement procedures for its customers and to help them meet the requirements of Federal Acquisitions Regulations (FAR).

Vendors can provide basic serials subscription services including placing new and renewal orders with publishers, prepaying publishers, claiming missing issues and providing a range of administrative services including routine price, publication information and management reports. Some vendors can provide additional serials management and automation services, e.g., checking in and processing issues; downloading data to the customer's online system; or managing access to electronic journals. Each customer's total cost is determined by a quote from the vendor on the agency's individual title list and technical requirements.

Agency Competitions Can Begin

Individual agency requirements for subscription service vary widely, based on the agency's particular title/publisher list, number of shipping/consignee addresses, and additional technical and automated serials control requirements. Within the basic framework of the LC/FEDLINK BOAs, FEDLINK customers must determine which of the vendors is best suited to the local agency's needs by competing the serials subscription services orders. This competition secures the best technical service for a particular agency at the best price.

For new transfer pay customers (or those who wish to compete again for the current year) with a serials order greater than $25,000, LC/Contracts and Grants Management staff will issue a Request for Quotation (RFQ) to the vendors. For the RFQ customers must supply a reliable title list that includes ISSNs (international standard serial number) and subscription periods, ship-to information, and a description of any technical requirements for optional services such as check-in or union listing.

IMPORTANT: All Requests for Quotations must include the FEDLINK ID and must indicate that the order will be placed under the FEDLINK program.

Transfer pay customers should complete an Intent to Compete Serials Subscriptions form. Details are available at the FEDLINK Web site http://www.loc.gov/flicc/onlinedoc/serials06.html. Members may use the form as a cover sheet to submit an electronic title list and, if necessary, any special technical requirements. (Both of these items may be emailed to [log in to unmask]) All transfer pay serials requirements must be sent to LC/OCGM no later than May 15, 2005 for FY2006 funds and January 2006 (or earlier) subscription start dates.

Competitions for accounts over $25,000 also require an announcement on the Federal Business Opportunities Web site at http://www.fedbizopps.gov.

As an added service, LC's Office of Contracts & Grants Management (LC/OCGM) will prepare these announcements for transfer pay customers.

Direct pay customers will need to work directly with their agencies' contracting officials. FEDLINK will authorize direct pay serials purchase orders based on a certification from the agency's contracting officer that competition requirements for the order have been satisfied.

Both transfer pay and direct pay customers may select a vendor based solely on the vendor's service fee or based on a combination of technical and cost factors. FEDLINK's contracting office or the contracting officer's technical representative can help analyze the best approach, based on requirements.

Expert Assistance Available from FEDLINK

LC/FEDLINK contracting officers and FEDLINK network librarians have worked closely with members on hundreds of serials competitions and are available to help both transfer pay and direct pay customers with the Fiscal Year 2006 competitions.

FEDLINK is also offering two 2006 Serials Subscription--RFQ Recompetition Briefings, on February 25, 2005 and March 15, 2005 at the Library of Congress. The March 15 briefing will be video taped and available from the FLICC/FEDLINK Online Video Library at http://www.loc.gov/flicc/vidlib.html by April 1, 2005.

For individual assistance for preparing for competition, customers may contact Georgette Harris at (202) 707-4850 or Tony Lembo at (202) 707-0459.
