Award Eligibility Determination (AED) Industry Day Notice

The U.S. Department of Education's (ED) Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) Office in conjunction with Federal Student Aid’s (FSA)Acquisition Directorate, Student Experience and Aid Delivery (SEAD), and Partner, Participation and Oversight (PPO) Program Offices is hosting an online Industry Day for interested parties in the Award Eligibility Determination (AED) Solicitation on Wednesday, July 14, 2021, from 1:00PM-4:00PM EDT. This event will provide potential offerors with information about FSA’s goals for the AED Modernization solicitation and recent changes. The following topics will be discussed:

•The importance of small business participation and teaming

•Updates to the procurement timeline

•Cloud hosting and scope update

•Objectives and constraints

FSA will not provide the public with the materials from the AED Modernization Industry Day because it will be releasing a draft Request for Proposal (RFP). This draft RFP will provide sufficient information for potential offerors to begin preparing their proposals ahead of the final RFP release and provide an additional opportunity for Q&A.

Please note that you must RSVP to join the webinar. Upon successful registration, you will receive an email containing a personalized access link. Please also note that our events have limited capacity and vendors are encouraged to register promptly. This notice on will close on July 14, 2021, at 12:00AM EDT. We look forward to your participation.
