The Homeland Security Department is looking for small businesses specializing in IT to help it create an Internet portal for department employees at locations in the Washington area.
The Infrastructure Web Portal Project will be operated by the DHS' Chief Information Officer's infrastructure management office for the National Capital Area, which includes the District of Columbia and suburban Maryland and Virginia. DHS offices in the area include headquarters at Nebraska Avenue in upper Northwest D.C. and the CIO's offices on D Street in Southwest D.C..
DHS officials published a request for quotations
on Feb. 1 describing the three-month project, which is supposed to be completed by May 26. The entire project is considered a small business set-aside, which means it will be 100 percent reserved for small businesses.
The selected IT contractor will assist in developing an architecture and content for the Web portal and will stand up the portal interface site.
