Air Force seeks cyber risk management support from 8(a) businesses
On September 5, the U.S. Air Force posted a request for information on Information Systems Security Support Services (Solicitation Number: FA703718R2000). Submissions are due by COB on September 21.
The Government is considering a contract which will provide cyberspace planning and operations for AF JWICS, ISR Security, and HQ 25AF enterprise services to enable Air Force global missions. The contractor will optimize the implementation of the RMF, ensuring the necessary plans, processes, procedures, and security measures are in-place and executable for AF ISR weapon systems, networks, and ancillary systems to attain and maintain Authorization. The work will be based out of JBSA Lackland AFB, TX. Ancillary sites at Langley AFB, Warner-Robbins AFB, Tyndall AFB and potentially other locations will require extended TDY durations. TDY travel at CONUS and OCONUS locations will also be part of the work.
A set of similar Cyber Risk Management services is within the Small Business Administration’s 8(a) program. Due to the current contract, and the structure of the 8(a) program, this RFI only seeks inputs from current 8(a) firms as part of this market research effort.
The intent of this RFI is to locate potential sources for this requirement. The information obtained in this RFI will be used to build an acquisition strategy for Cyber Risk Management at various installations. All submission will be used for market intelligence purposes, will become the property of the Government and will not be returned.
