The U.S. Forest Service is looking for information on the best way to acquire a full range of IT services for the Comprehensive and Robust Information Security, or CRIS2 program.
The service’s Washington Office Acquisition Management IT Support Branch is looking to find out about the latest offerings, best practices and approaches for information technology that the CRIS2 program supports. The U.S. Forest Service has developed the program because of mandates required by federal laws, standards and guidance, according to the sources sought notice.
The service would like the contractor to provide information on their capabilities in project management, enterprise security program guidance and policy, framework/strategy refresh and monitoring, oversight and compliance verification, and other areas.
Comments are due Dec. 9, 2013, by 5:00pm Mountain time.
