The Homeland Security Department's Customs and Border Protection agency is developing an acquisition strategy for cloud migration services as it aims to move all of its applications away from the Office of Information Technology National Data Center complex by 2022.
CBP officials want to identify companies that have cloud resources and services and migrate current on-premises IT services to commercial cloud service providers (CSP), according to a new request for information.
The contract task work include overarching cloud acquisition services, cloud resources and services, site reliability engineering support, cloud brokerage services, cybersecurity, and establishing the Cloud Operations Center. Work would also include program management services, such as program planning, facilitating background investigations, contractor team training, and work coordination and direction.
CBP anticipates a five-year contract for the work.
CBP released its RFI Feb. 28. Responses are due by April 16.
