On March 20, the U.S. Air Force posted a request for information for 50th Space Wing (50 SW) Cybersecurity and Defensive Cyberspace Operations (DCO) for 50 SW Space Mission Systems (Solicitation Number: 50SWDCORFI2017). All responses to this notice are due no later than 1600 (4:00 PM) local Mountain Daylight Time (MDT) on Wednesday, March 29.
This RFI is to conduct market research to assess industry capability for the Cybersecurity and Defensive Cyberspace Operations (DCO) for 50 SW Space Mission Systems to enable protection, detection, response, and sustainment of 50th Space Wing cyber defense missions. Responses to this RFI will be used for acquisition planning for a planned acquisition.
Note: 50 SW Space Mission Systems are distinct from general purpose communications systems such as the NIPRNet and the SIPRNet; the subject of this acquisition is Cybersecurity and DCO for 50 SW Space Mission Systems. In addition to 50 SW Space Mission Systems, other Space Mission Systems, which are operated by 50 SW tenant organizations, might be included in the planned acquisition. 50 SW Space Mission Systems include multiple Geographically Separated Units (GSUs) worldwide; however, services are contemplated for performance at Schriever AFB, Colorado (although it is possible services might also be performed at several additional CONUS locations). Interested contractors are invited to submit a Capability Statement addressing their ability to satisfy the requirements described in this RFI.
This RFI is also to conduct market research to assess the suitability of the acquisition for a Small Business Set Aside.
