Army posts new modern software development RFI

On May 23, the U.S. Army Contracting Command – Aberdeen Proving Ground (ACC-APG) posted a request for information (RFI) for a new modern software development multiple award IDIQ. Responses are due by 4:00 p.m. Eastern on June 10.

Software is essential to modern military operations. It is a key component in the Army’s weapons, business, and training systems and is embedded into the enterprise processes that make the Department function. These systems enable the Army to detect and track adversaries, protect operations from cyber threats, and improve the accuracy and effectiveness of decisions and actions. Software drives improved outcomes and effectiveness in our missions and operations.

Consequently, the Army’s ability to rapidly develop, deliver, and adapt resilient software is critical to achieving a competitive advantage over adversaries. ACC-APG is pursuing a new Multiple Award Indefinite Quanty Indefinite Delivery Contract for Modern Software Development for which task orders will be issued for software enablement efforts in support of Army systems. For the purposes of this action, a “software enablement effort” is defined as: (a) development of a custom software solution; (b) customization, integration, or modification of a software solution; (c) software as a service enablement; or (d) software security and hosting modernization.

ACC-APG seeks input on the proposed contract strategy, initial statement of objectives, and answers to targeted questions. Specifically, ACC-APG is seeking suggestions on how to establish a phased source selection that will enable the Army to award an effective and expedited Multiple Award contract to the most qualified contractors.
