ELSG Guide: Enterprise Software Acquisition

enable

The Air Force has established the Air Force Software Enterprise Acquisition Management Lifecycle Support (SEAMLS) office at the 754 ELSG. The SEAMLS office will act as the primary interface with all Air Force customers for software licensing and services. This office manages the Microsoft Enterprise Licensing and Service Agreements, the AF-wide Oracle Contract and the DoD Enterprise Software Initiative (ESI). With respect to the Enterprise License Agreement, SEAMLS responsibilities include oversight of purchasing, usage compliance, field assistance and distribution. The objectives are to save money, streamline the acquisition process, facilitate enterprise licensing, and improve information sharing.

 

The Office of Management and Budget, DoD and General Services Administration awarded multiple contracts for blanket purchase agreements (BPA) to protect sensitive, unclassified data residing on government laptops, other mobile computing devices and removable storage media devices. The encryption of data-at-rest (DAR) information Is now possible through these BPAs which were successfully completed using DoD’s ESI and GSA’s government-wide SmartBUY (Software Managed and Acquired on the Right Terms) programs.

 

In 2006, the Air Force established the consolidation of Air Force Oracle Enterprise Management Functions of the AFMC, AF/IL and AF-Wide Enterprise Agreements (EAs). This consolidation provides the Air Force the single automated system to track EA assets; provides a one-stop shop for Air Force Oracle customers worldwide; and allows agencies to benefit from economies of scale.

Data at Rest (DAR) Encryption
The Office of Management and Budget, DoD and General Services Administration awarded multiple contracts for blanket purchase agreements (BPA) to protect sensitive, unclassified data residing on government laptops, other mobile computing devices and removable storage media devices. The encryption of data-at-rest (DAR) information is now possible through these BPAs which were successfully competed using DoD's Enterprise Software Initiative (ESI) and GSAs government-wide SmartBUY (Software Managed and Acquired on the Right Terms) programs. Three categories of software and hardware encryption products are available under the BPAs - full disk encryption (FDE), file encryption (FES), and integrated FDE/FES products.


All products use cryptographic modules validated under FIPS 140-2 security requirements, and have met stringent technical and interoperability requirements. Licenses are transferable within a federal agency and include secondary use rights. All awarded BPA prices are as low as or lower than prices each vendor has available on GSA schedules, with significant savings to the Federal Government estimated. Component CIO's are currently developing component/service specific enterprise strategies. Accordingly, customers should check with their Chief Information Officer for Component specific policies and strategies on procurement of Data at Rest solutions.
