The Navy is conducting research as it develops a five-year task order contract for program management, IT and IT portfolio support.
The department’s Navy Information Dominance Forces (NAVIDFOR) wants a company to help with efficiency initiatives, strategic assessments, gap analysis, readiness and risk evaluations, enterprise architecture, and C5I shore network and communications modernization. Officials are also looking for Information Technology Service Management process standardization, domain IT support and cybersecurity, among others.
The NAVIDFOR Type Commander was established in October 2014, and officials are consolidating and aligning other information Dominance missions, functions and tasks previously managed by other IDs Commands.
In the reorganization, the Navy created the Shore Modernization and Integration Directorate, or NAVIDFOR N46, to consolidate manning, training, equipping-focused activities to support Navy enterprise network integration. Along with the Navy, the Intelligence Community is pushing toward an Integrated Intelligence Enterprise.
The Navy is researching the market for capable small businesses to handle the work.
The Navy released the sources sought notice Jan. 13. Responses are due by Feb. 3.
