On December 6, the U.S. Army Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate posted a sources sought notice for I2WD Software Sustainment. Responses are due by 5:00 p.m. Eastern on December 8.
The requirements identified below are all encompassing and necessary to support Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) Systems Operations, Installation, Logistics, Maintenance, and Related Sustainment Support for Elevated Sensor Systems from 21 Dec. 2017 to 20 Dec. 2018.
Description of Requirement: The purpose of this sources sought is to locate potential industry sources capable of providing support to US Army, Intelligence and Information Warfare Directorate (I2WD). The process encompasses sustainment capabilities, which consist primarily of maintaining existing software into associated Programs of Record (POR). Services include the Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. These services will support the efforts for hardware and software that has become part of the architecture embedded systems, and associated PORs. The services are required from 21 December 2017 through 20 December 2018. Due to critical fielding and training schedule deadlines, no transition-in time/period will be provided.
This is an existing requirement and I2WD will need these services for approximately twelve (12) months, starting on 21 December 2017 in order to transition into sustainment. Leading up to this transition to Post Production Software Support (PPSS), the Government requires the ability to evaluate and apply priority bug fixes, IVAM-patches with resulting bug fixes and continued vendor deliveries in order to execute and apply mandatory updates to the POR baseline.
