DISA posts sources sought for National Ground Intelligence Center Mission System Engineering
The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) announced on February 10 that it is seeking sources for National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC) Mission System Engineering (NMSE). Vendors who wish to respond to this should send responses via email NLT February 18, 2016 at 4:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).
This is a SOURCES SOUGHT TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION to determine the availability and technical capability of small businesses (including the following subsets, Small Disadvantaged Businesses, HUBZone Firms; Certified 8(a), Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses and Woman Owned Small Business) to provide the required products and/or services.
The NGIC/Information Technology (IT) Engineering Division Program Management Branch (IANG-ITE-PM) is seeking information for potential sources for support essential in order to provide system engineering services for software programs and integration analysis across the mission, to include, but not limited to, the Combat Incident Analysis Division (CIAD), NGIC Improvised Explosive Devices (IED)/Mines Branch, and Technology Integration Office. NMSE personnel will follow a comprehensive, iterative management processes that includes translating operational requirements into configured systems, integrating the technical inputs of design teams, managing interfaces, characterizing and managing technical risk, transitioning technology from the technology base into program specific efforts, and verifying that designs, analysis, and tactics, techniques, and procedures meet operational needs.
NMSE shall ensure that high-priority technical program requirements are architected and engineered to enable current and future NGIC analytical, data sharing, and integration indicatives, as well as achieve system certification and accreditation. NMSE personnel shall also assist programs to ensure that they remain responsive to the requirements and objectives of the Department of Defense (DoD), intelligence and law-enforcement communities.
NGIC has an on-going requirement to enable key programs interoperability with Intelligence Community (IC) Information Technology Enterprise (IC ITE), Library of National Intelligence, Biometrics, Biometric Enabled Intelligence, Identity Intelligence, U.S. Government Known/Suspected Terrorist, and National Security Threat watchlisting enterprises. NGIC requires essential support to CIAD for necessary technical analysis and reviews to enable improvements in analyst tool-sets, system interfaces, improved means of data query, data sharing capability; provide continued support to the Combat Incident Analysis Database and facilitate the sharing of vital data with the Joint Trauma Analysis and Prevention of Injury in Combat (JTAPIC) program. There is an ongoing need to facilitate the sharing and dissemination of Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) data worldwide and help establish World Wide IED data sharing to extend dissemination and facilitate collaboration with Combatant Commands and mission partners. As the IC ITE Commercial Cloud Services (C2S) provisioning lead for Army Military Intelligence (MI), the NGIC requires NMSE systems integration support to establish the foundational Army MI enterprise services that are essential for Army programs and projects to integrate with C2S. The NGIC also requires systems integration and analysis support for the Army IC ITE Desktop Environment (DTE) Pilot.
