On October 22, the Defense Information Systems Agency posted a sources sought notice for JITC Test, Evaluation, and Certification services. Capability statements are due by email no later than November 9 4:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time.
The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) is seeking sources for DISA/Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) Test, Evaluation, and Certification (TEC) Services. TEC is a recompete to the DISA Test and Evaluation Mission Support Services (T&E MSS) contract.
JITC operates as a field activity under DISA and is the Department of Defense’s (DoD’s) Joint Interoperability Certifier and only non-Service Operational Test Agency (OTA) for Information Technology/National Security Systems (IT/NSS). JITC provides risk-based TEC services, tools, and environments to ensure Joint Warfighting IT capabilities are interoperable and support mission needs.
JITC is seeking information for potential sources for non-personal TEC services. The contractor will provide TEC planning, test conduct, data collection and analysis, and results reporting for DoD and non-DoD IT and NSS capabilities. IT/NSS TEC support encompasses a range of capabilities from legacy systems to emerging net-centric technologies, cyber security, mobile devices, cloud-based systems, and evolving IT/NSS capabilities. The contractor will assist the government in providing agile and responsive TEC services in support of functional areas including enterprise services; enterprise logistics; business systems; tactical systems; cyberspace; national intelligence; networks/communications; unified capabilities; warfighter support; knowledge management; strategic communications; business operations; testbed management; information assurance; engineering; automation/instrumentation; quality control; technical writing/editing; JITC strategy, plans, and policies support; and Network and internal application development/maintenance. The contractor will provide personnel, materials, travel, services, and other items needed to satisfy the operations, infrastructure, policy development, and TEC requirements of JITC and its customers.
Description: The objective of the DISA T&E MSS contract is to provide a full-range of agile and cost-effective TEC services that support testing for DoD and non-DoD IT/NSS technologies and capabilities, and to provide direct support to the Nation’s warfighters through Joint and Coalition exercises and efforts. Approximately 600 FTEs support over 1,500 TEC activities (of which about 200 are various Acquisition Category (ACAT) level programs) annually. During peak TEC periods, including all program sizes and ACAT levels, the 600 FTEs may simultaneously support up to 250 programs. TEC and/or technical services are provided to all four military Services, many of the DoD Agencies, all the Combatant Commands, Office of the Secretary of Defense, industry, academia, and a variety of other customers.
