The Defense Intelligence Agency intends to select one or more small businesses to provide support services to its office of the chief finance officer, so the DIA will can establish tighter internal controls and better prepare for financial audits by the end of fiscal year 2018.
The chosen vendors will be expected to provide the Intelligence Community with “the capability to access a large pool of available talent with a diversity of experience, education and technological capabilities,” explains a presolicitation notice released by the Virginia Contracting Activity on March 28.
The contracts to multiple vendors are intended to “streamline the procurement process for the Chief Finance Officer…” and “effectively and efficiently manage CFO resources.”
The DIA envisions a task order-based, multiple award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract with a base year of performance plus four one-year option periods.
The skills that will be required of the chosen small businesses will include project management, program development and budget formulation services, budget execution and accounting services, audit services, cycle management services, cost analysis services, program and performance evaluation, metrics development services, financial management and internal controls, says the notice.
The DIA is planning an Industry Day at Building 600 at the Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, in Washington, DC on April 1, from 1:00 to 5:00 PM.
The support contacts will cover both classified and unclassified programs, the notice continues. For that reason, the selected vendors will be required to have a Top Secret SCI Facility Clearance prior to submitting their proposals.
