Afghanistan watchdog looking for support
The inspector general overseeing contracting in Afghanistan is looking for a little bit of help via what could be a $21 million contract.
The Army is floating a contract for a wide range of services to support the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, also known as the SIGAR.
The five-year contract will likely have an estimated value of between $10 million and $21 million, according to a new sources sought notice.
The RFI includes a long list of skills the SIGAR needs to procure including:
- Administrative assistant
- Data Analyst
- Congressional Liaison
- Forensic auditors
- General engineering
- Human resources specialists
- IT analysts
- Information management officer
- Program analysts
- Travel and deployment specialists
Responses to the RFI should be no longer than 10 pages and must include past contracts for similar services with the Defense Department.
While the RFI doesn’t say that the contract will be a small business set aside vehicle, the Army does want to know if you are in any small business categories. They also want to know if you have a facilities clearance at a minimum of the secret level and a secret clearance for level of safeguarding. If you don’t have the clearances, you need to include a plan for achieving them.
Responses are due Nov. 2.
Most of the work will take place at Crystal City, but there will be times that work will need to be done in Afghanistan.
The SIGAR was created to provide independent oversight of U.S. contracting activities related to the reconstruction of Afghanistan. The office was created following several contracting scandals.
