Using CIO-CS

NITAAC developed the secure Electronic Government Ordering System (e-GOS), a web-based delivery order processing system, to allow customers to perform fair opportunity in accordance with FAR 16.5 and to integrate workflow management, electronic document management, and aspects of customer relationship management to enhance process efficiency, and improve data/information integrity. Customers are required to use the e-GOS in order to participate in the delivery order process.The NIH Contract Access Fee (NCAF) is a required NIH fee that is fixed at .35% to reimburse the cost of operating and administering the CIO-CS contract. The NCAF is charged against all delivery orders and applied to the total award value, inclusive of the commodities and commodity enabling services. NCAF is not subject to downward adjustment.

Effective January 25, 2017, there is a fee cap for all orders under the CIO-CS GWAC in the amount of $70,000. The fee cap applies to any order base or optional period (not to exceed 12 months) with funding in excess of $20 million.
