The Defense Information Systems Agency is considering a small-business set-aside contract for Defense Collaboration Services (DCS) engineering support.
In a new sources sought notice, DISA said its needs include:
- Complete system lifecycle development
- Engineering services support for the Enterprise-Wide Services Division (SD32) to identify and recommend solutions for DCS system and capabilities improvements
- Risk management framework subject matter experts (SMEs)
- The agency also wants for SMEs for: Testing and evaluation of the DCS system and capabilities; functional training and training support; and support for the network performance and configuration
Currently, DISA is planning for a five-year contract, and responses from small businesses, including each subset, will determine the type contract and level of participation of small companies.
