The Defense Information Systems Agency intends to award a five-year contract in 2015 for Internet data processing and aggregation services, as part of its Information Volume & Velocity (IV2) framework.
Currently, DISA is seeking small businesses, such as service-disabled veteran-owned, woman-owned, and small disadvantaged businesses, that can provide open-source data that leads to a reduced cost to the government.
DISA requires the open-source data to support various mission areas, such as extracting Internet data from blogs, news sites, forums, and various media formats; identifying and tagging formatted, and unformatted, Personally Identifiable Information and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) data; satisfying a one-time data request and continuous data request that produce results over time; and gathering web content beyond the primary source, coping all the pages they visit, and delivering that data for later processing into the IV2 framework.
DISA released its sources sought notice Nov. 19. Responses are due by Dec. 9.
