The Army today issued a draft request for proposals for the Army Knowledge Online Enterprise Services contract. The deal previously had been called Army Knowledge Online Lead Systems Integrator.
The estimated value of the contract was not available. Responses are due Oct. 5.
Reston, Va.-based research firm Input Inc. estimates an award in the Feb. 2005 timeframe.
The Army is looking for a single integrator to consolidate and operate its successful online portal. There are currently more than a half dozen contractors working on parts of the portal.
The Army recently unveiled the most recent version, built on software from Vienna, Va.-based Appian Corp. It includes new collaboration features for setting up online forums, chat rooms and e-mail lists.
With more than 1.7 million users, the Army Knowledge Online portal is considered one of the largest intranets in the world.
