The U.S. Marine Corps is looking for a small business set-aside vendor that could offer counterintelligence and human intelligence (CI/HUMINT) training for counterintelligence agents at Camp Pendleton in California in April and May 2014.

“The purpose of this training is to provide CI/HUMINT Marines with a deeper understanding of counterintelligence tactics, techniques, and procedures,” explains a statement of work released on April 17. “It will enrich their professional insight as Counterintelligence Agents and equip them to better defend against such adversarial aims as those aligned with terrorism, espionage, sabotage, and subversion.”

The Marine Corps envisions the training being delivered in three 5-day blocks of training, for a total of 15 days of training. Each session should be able to accommodate 30 students, says the notice.

Block 1 would provide an overview of counterintelligence issues; Block 2 would cover offensive counterintelligence operations; and Block 3 would focus on contemporary counterespionage.

Interested prospective vendors have until April 23 to respond. The Marine Corps plans for a single firm fixed price contract.
