PitchBook Leveraged Commentary Data



SOL # 20341524Q00012



The Bureau of the Fiscal Service, on behalf of the Office of Financial Research (OFR) and the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) intends to make award to PitchBook Data, Inc., 901 5th Avenue, Suite 1200, Seattle, WA 98164 on a sole source basis, there is no competitive vendor or regulatory agency that provides Leveraged Commentary Data (LCC). Additionally, OFR previously received LCD from PitchBook via a stand-alone contract, but PitchBook has now migrated LCD into its PitchBook Platform. Therefore, there is a need for the OFR to acquire a license for the PitchBook Platform to get access to LCD.



The government requires financial, historical, and transactional datasets, portal(s), feed(s), or Streamed data:



• Downloadable financial data solution without data caps (download size limitations).



• Persisted data should be included if applicable. Please note all downloaded data must be capable of being exported to Excel as well as common statistical and data analytic packages such as Mat Lab and Python.



• Terminal based solutions are not acceptable.



• Information provided must be updated as frequently as possible consistent with industry practice.



PitchBook Leveraged Commentary & Data (LCD; corporate credit data) contains daily analysis on: LSTA U.S. Leveraged Loan 100 Index including price, return, and index level information; weekly reports providing weekly secondary rating and industry spreads, total return figures and index levels; and monthly reviews consisting of index general characteristics, results, risk-return, profile, default/distress statistics, and repayment analysis.



The LCD product is accessed via a web portal with screening, charting and Excel plug-in capabilities. These products and services may be available to OFR, FSOC and or other Government agencies.



PitchBook Leveraged Commentary Data (LCD) provides unique data for US and Europe Financial Institutions Data for non-bank financial institutions, regional and community bank such as finance companies and independent mortgage companies (Rocket, Quicken and the like). This data is the only broad spectrum financial analytic dataset/platform which provides sector specific analytics, business intelligence, and aggregated information and data on the financial industry, non-investment banks (regionals and community banks) and non-bank financial institutions (insurance companies, real estate companies, broker-dealers, and asset managers). Overall, PitchBook LCD has exclusive research, commentary, and data which is not duplicated by any other known source. This information is needed by OFR to formulate financial models and perform analysis for the OFR Annual Report especially on non-banking financial institutions and regional/community banks.
