Army issues Internet awareness RFP

The Army wants a contractor to provide Internet awareness services in support of national defense.

In a request for proposals issued today, the Army said it wants help patrolling the Internet to identify and assess implied threats, antipathy and unrest on certain Internet domains. Responses are due July 7.

The Army will use the information to provide warning of hostile activity, help protect U.S. forces and increase situational awareness of developing events that may influence the United States' goals and interests.

The contractor will be required to analyze various Web pages, chat rooms, blogs and other Internet domains to gather and assess data of interest to the U.S. government.

The contractor should provide a cyber investigator, a locally specialized threat analyst, a foreign-speaking analyst with cyber investigative skills and a constant watch team. The contractor will be required to provide weekly written reports containing raw data and expert analysis.

The Wiesbaden Contracting Center, which is part of the Army Contracting Command Europe, is the contracting activity.
