DHS seeks help with access and management of RAMONA program’s GIS inventory
On June 5, the Department of Homeland Security issued the following sources sought notice (Solicitation Number: RUIO-15-GE023). Interested vendors should note that responses are due by email no later than 12:00pm EST on June 22.
The intent of this sources sought synopsis is to identify qualified business concerns to provide access and maintenance for the National States Geographic Information Council (NSGIC) Random Access Metadata for Online Nationwide Assessment (RAMONA) GIS Inventory to include integration of the GIS inventory with the Department Homeland Security (DHS) enterprise and facilitate coordination and awareness of DHS geospatial initiatives with DHS state partners and local affiliates.
The DHS Geospatial Management Office (GMO) is the Departmental lead for the coordination of geospatial activities within DHS and across the Federal government. The DHS GMO facilitates the Department’s alignment with national geospatial policies and initiatives and management of the geospatial information infrastructure(GII). This will promote interoperability and security of geospatial data and systems as well as promulgate best-practices, authoritative/trusted data sources, and advance shared-services and resources in support of the President’s geospatial information technology objectives and the Department’s authorities and responsibilities under the Intelligence Reform Act of 2004 (IRTPA) and OMB Circular A-16.
The Government intends to solicit and award a Firm-Fixed Price Contract for the aforementioned requirement. The NAICS Code is 511120. The duration of the contract is anticipated to be for one (1) twelve (12) month base period with two (2) twelve (12) month option periods. The government will evaluate market information to ascertain potential market capacity to provide services consistent in scope and scale with those described in this notice.
