Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Best-in-Class (BIC) solution?
Best in Class (BIC) means that something has been designated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) as a preferred governmentwide solution that: 1. Allows acquisition experts to take advantage of pre-vetted, governmentwide contract solutions; 2. Supports a governmentwide migration to solutions that are mature and market-proven; 3. Assists in the optimization of spend, within the governmentwide category management framework; and 4. Increases the transactional data available for agency level and governmentwide analysis of buying behavior. To see the five rigorous criteria for Best in Class solutions as outlined by OMB, please visit the Acquisition Gateway and Best in Class (BIC) Resource page.
What are CIO-CS Categories?
