The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency wants to know how a contractor can help it with unclassified cloud development support and industry collaboration services.
NGA is considering a five-year contract for the cloud development support project. Through a new request for information, it’s gathering feedback on industry practices that would meet its own needs.
The agency is also seeking ideas on additional value-added services that could aid the requirements to enable more of its modernization efforts.
Specific task areas include:
- The ability to rapidly purchase and test hardware and software to include private cloud technology
- Enhancements for collaborative teamwork and team cohesion
- Ideas and collaboration services
- Industry collaboration activities and events
- Other NGA locations, which might benefit from similar support services.
On a broader scale, the project would aid NGA’s larger digital transformation, cloud migration work, and better industry interaction.
The NGA released the RFI Oct. 18. Responses are due by Oct. 31.
