Electronic Procurement Information Control (EPIC) System

GPO is actively working on a project to replace its legacy systems to streamline and automate the existing end-to-end print procurement workflow. The resulting system should be scalable, provide real-time access to specified current and historical print procurement data, and be accessible to all users (e.g. GPO, commercial vendors, contractors, Federal Agencies, and public). EPIC will be aligned with GPO's Strategic Plan for FY 2012-2016 and the agency's Enterprise Architecture (EA). It will also integrate with evolving enterprise-wide systems, including GPO's Business Information System (GBIS) and other future enterprise systems.

Key Documents

Concept of Operations: Describes the current state of operations and the desired characteristics of EPIC.

Requirements Document: Defines the user requirements for EPIC and is intended to communicate those requirements to the technical community who will build the system.

Additional Information

In 2012, GPO issued a Request for Information (RFI) in order to assess program documentation as well to understand the capabilities of vendors. The RFI and all applicable instructions are available at the Federal Business Opportunities website.

GPO is currently conducting market research and plans on awarding a contract for the system in 2013. GPO is also gathering additional feedback from the agency and printing vendor community.
