Copyright Office Issues Request for Information for Enterprise Copyright System Development
Issue No. 823 - May 18, 2020

The U.S. Copyright Office is engaged in a comprehensive modernization effort and is assessing its technology systems Office-wide. As part of this work, and working with the General Services Administration, on May 15, the Office issued a formal Request for Information (RFI) on possibilities for potential contractors to manage and develop Office capabilities into a new, web-based, cloud-hosted Enterprise Copyright System (ECS). This is a follow-on market research to an RFI submitted in 2018. The Office hopes to use responses for planning purposes, and also possibly as the basis for a future solicitation or request for more in-depth research. More information and how to respond to the RFI is available here.
