Knowledge Online RFP due
The Army plans to issue a request for proposals before Thanksgiving in search of a single integrator for the Army Knowledge Online portal.
Lee Harvey, deputy program executive officer for enterprise information systems, said there was a slight delay in rolling out the RFP, which officials have talked about since late summer.
"We're ensuring that we have all the requirements in order before we put it out on the street," Harvey said.
In September, the Army unveiled the third version of AKO, built on software from Appian Corp., Vienna, Va. AKO-3 added collaboration features for setting up online forums, chat rooms and e-mail lists.
The Army anticipates making the proposals due just before Christmas, Harvey said.
