Army launches IT buy
The Army has issued a request for proposals for a single integrator for its Army Knowledge Online-Enterprise Services program.
The service has seven contractors working on different components of the AKO portal, which has led to redundant efforts, Army officials said.
AKO and its counterpart for the Secret IP Router Network, AKO-S, rely on contractor-owned systems at the primary site at Fort Belvoir, Va., and at a secondary backup location.
Both AKO and AKO-S are part of the service's Enterprise Services program.
In the RFP, the Army said it wants to find a single contractor to make the program more efficient.
