DIA updates broad agency announcement
As a combat support agency and key member of the United States Intelligence Community, DIA principally provides military intelligence related information to defense policymakers and force planners in support of U.S. military planning and operations. DIA also provides other critical support and services as is appropriate. DIA is committed to building agility and creativity into the core of all of its activities to promote maximum efficiency and effectiveness in agency operations. To sustain, foster, and ensure the most advanced/modern capability exists in fulfilling multiple agency level roles and responsibilities, DIA is interested in the totality of possible solutions, opportunities, and leading edge technologies that support agency innovation objectives.
DIA is interested in the full range and full scope of possible innovative ideas from all interested and qualified sources, to include participation by, and potentially with both traditional and non-traditional members (e.g. large businesses, small businesses, independent consultants, academic institutions, consortium participants, other) that may assist the agency in maximizing operating efficiency and effectiveness in operations, or otherwise provide preeminent technological and/or innovation capability that most capably allows the agency to support its mandated national and international mission requirements.
Anticipated Individual Awards – Multiple awards are anticipated although no commitments or promises are made in this regard. It is anticipated that awards will also be made by other Agencies in addition to DIA. These Agencies will each execute individual contracts within the larger Innovation portfolio and will use their internal Contracting Officers (CO), Contracting Officer’s Representatives (COR), and administrative procedures.
