The contract has two sections: a restricted part for small businesses and a full-and-open part.
The Army will issue multiple awards each for five years with two-year options. Responses are due by July 28. Contact the Army Contracting Agency at LOGJAMSS2@us.army.mil.
Prisons Bureau wants wireless
The Bureau of Prisons wants information about wireless technologies that could be used securely in the agency's infrastructure.
Vendors should provide information on the types of access points that can be used for indoor and outdoor locations, how the wireless LAN can work with the wired infrastructure, how roaming can be handled in the design, and the type of encryption that can be supported.
They also should describe data infrastructure security features for mitigating attacks such as snooping, denial of service and viruses and worms.
Responses are due by July 31. Contact Donald Sinsel at email@example.com.
