The Homeland Security Department’s National Cyber Security Center is looking for a veteran-owned small business to operate its Cyber Operations Wiki System.
The goal of the wiki is to provide a platform for collaboration to support at least six federal cyber mission centers.
The department published an amended draft statement of work on the Federal Business Opportunities Web site on Sept. 9. The acquisition is a set aside for service-disabled, veteran-owned small businesses. Previously, the department had designated a specific company for the work.
According to the draft, the vendor will support design, system development, staging, and implementation of the wiki, including the training of users and post-implementation documentation requirements.
“The wiki platform is intended to foster information sharing and provide knowledge management services, while dramatically reducing traditional skilled webmaster support in favor of immediate open interaction of participants, at all three classification levels,” reads the draft statement. “Use of the wiki is intended to leverage the strengths of individual subject matter expertise and exploit the collective intellectual contribution of all of the centers and their customers that participate in the use of the Cyber Ops Wiki.”
