"Work" is described as the delivery of light duty vehicles to the federal government in accordance with specifications listed in the Government Motor Vehicle Ordering Guide (GMVOG), the quantity, time frame and point of delivery requirements, as well as all administrative work associated with the fulfillment of these requirements. The GMVOG can be requested by contacting the Standing Offer Authority at the following email address:

5. Provide technical data for the vehicles and options offered in order to update the GMVOG. The data must be submitted NPP using epost Connect services.
As a result of this NPP, a qualified Offeror list will be created. At the second stage, only the Offerors on the list will be allowed to bid on the Request for Standing Offer (RFSO).
Subsequently, all qualified Offerors meeting the mandatory criteria of the RFSO, will be eligible to become a Standing Offer (SO) holder for the supply of the 2021 or newer model year light duty vehicles listed in the 2020-2021 GMVOG. Departmental Individual Standing Offer (DISO) / National Individual Standing Offer (NISO) will be established.
