Army seeks additional JEDI vendors
On June 2, the U.S. Army posted a sources sought notice for Joint Enterprise Data Interoperability (JEDI) implementation and support. Responses are due by 6:00 a.m. Eastern on June 15.
The Government is seeking vendors that possess the required certifications to gain access to US DoD wide networks: Mission Partner Environment (MPE), Non-Secure Internet Protocol Router (NIPR) & Secure Internet Protocol Router (SIPR) networks as well as NATO information networks.
Currently, Nexus LCM is the only source capable of meeting the Government’s requirement as they already possess the mandatory qualifications to translate DoD data and Multi National Partners data to a NATO System of record. In addition, Nexus LCM is the only company that currently has access to the required networks in order to map software for utilization in several upcoming exercises. Since it takes approximately two years to obtain the required certifications, the Government is seeking qualified vendors that may have obtained the requisite certifications since the award of contract No. W912PB19P3221 – Joint Enterprise Data Interoperability on 19 August 2019.
If the required certifications have been obtained, please provide your company name, cage code, and requisite certifications.
If the contractor does not possess access to the required networks, they will not be able to accomplish the key tasks listed below:
- Historical knowledge and experience supporting interoperability for: LOGFAS, DoD, DISA, EUCOM, NATO, NCIA, SHAPE, Joint Staff J4, and HQDA G4
- Authorized, Basic Ordering Agreements (BOAs) concluded by the NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCIA)
- Holds Authority to Connect with EUCOM, 21st TSC, USAREUR on Mission Partner Environment (MPE) Non-Secure Internet Protocol Router (NIPR) & Secure Internet Protocol Router (SIPR) networks.
