Navy releases RFP for college IT support

The Navy is creating a five-year, indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity, multiple award contract so its military colleges have a pool of sources for IT support service needs.

The Navy set aside the IDIQ for service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses.

The IDIQ will provide services for the Naval Higher Education Information Technology Consortium (NHEITC), the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS), the Naval War College (NWC), and the United States Naval Academy (USNA).

The NHEITC member institutions require technical support and research in 14 critical categories:

  • Applications
  • Computer network defense
  • Learning management systems
  • Multimedia educational technologies
  • Virtualization
  • Network and infrastructure maintenance
  • Network engineering
  • Enterprise architecture
  • Service center services
  • Client hardware and lab services
  • Enterprise information
  • System architecture
  • System administration
  • Visualization services

In the solicitation, the Navy wrote that “collaborative work, a hallmark of academic research must be supported.” In addition, the schools need access to voice, video, and data tools to enable partnership across disciplinary, organizational, and geographic boundaries.

The Navy released the formal solicitation July 12. Responses are due by Aug. 15.
