I don't work at GSA or Education but need some help from the experts there.

A legacy IT system is coming up for recompete soon. Current system was built in '84 and hasn't improved or had any enhancements since. It's in-house managed and a total piece of garbage. Vendor claims they have proprietary software but it's simply basic accounting, on a COBOLT green screen.

Good news is a few BSP's will be bidding on the recompete package.

My questions:
- How can the BSP's bid on the recompete if it requires an inhouse system?

- Can re-compete solicitation packages limit all responding vendors to have existing in-house systems? Seems like a far cry from full and open competition.

- Can the BSP's bid on this, build their own application, then turn it over to the in-house goblins/staff at the end of the contract? (I imagine the BSP's could do that but it woudl be cost-prohibitive to the competitiveness of their bid.)

- Most importantly: Can BSP's and other vendors include share-in-savings in their response/proposal?
