Air Force posts Defense Civilian Intelligence Personnel System sources sought
On May 21, the U.S. Air Force issued a sources sought notice for Defense Civilian Intelligence Personnel System Support (Solicitation Number: DCIPS-05212018). Capability statements and other feedback are due by 12:00 p.m. Eastern on June 4.
Defense Civilian Intelligence Personnel System (DCIPS) is the common government civilian management system that spans the entire Defense Intelligence Enterprise. It is designed to build and sustain a workforce focused on the most critical management priorities needed to accomplish the mission, driving organization and mission success through accurate identification, prioritization, and alignment of individual competencies and organizational objectives. DCIPS provides a roadmap for the effective utilization of government civilians in order to provide full spectrum airpower to the warfighter.
The dynamic environment in which DCIPS operates throughout the Defense Intelligence Enterprise creates the need within the Air Force, and especially within AF/A2F, for comprehensive, integrated, and efficient support to: align the work of government intelligence personnel with mission and organizational priorities; perform executive engagement activities; identify and communicate the link between individual contributions and mission/organizational success; and promote individual growth through identification of possible career paths, relevant training, and educational opportunities.
The objective of this contract is to provide services to support implementation of effective DCIPS program management, communications, and policy expertise for the USAF Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence, Reconnaissance and Surveillance (ISR) that will enhance the readiness of the ISR Force. ISR operations are critical to the future success of American military operations and the achievement of long-range national objectives. The DCIPS support outlined below focuses on the coordination, applicability and compliance of DCIPS policies for the Air Force; procedures and tools to educate, train, and retain its civilian intelligence workforce to ensure that its staff has the ability to provide timely, objective, and cogent military intelligence to the nation’s warfighters and policy makers and communication mechanisms to ensure employees have the opportunity to pursue fulfilling and challenging careers and to maximize the potential of its people through planned and deliberate individual development.
