The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) is preparing to issue a formal Request for Proposal to prospective contractors who could help the agency provide better situational awareness for its efforts to counter weapons of mass destruction (WMD), improve its operations and strengthen its information systems.

DTRA held an industry day last December to brief prospective vendors on the goals and requirements that underpin this forthcoming contract. The agency hopes to issue the final RFP in March 2014 and award a single indefinite delivery / indefinite quantity contract in approximately August 2014, says a notice DTRA published on Feb. 19.

The contract would have a “ceiling amount” of $95.5 million, the notice explains, and a performance period of five years, followed by a possible two-year option period and another one-year option period.

The industry day briefing was conducted by DTRA’s threat intelligence department. The agenda for that industry day event included descriptions of the contract requirements for Intelligence, Modeling and Simulation Support; Operations Support for DTRA’s Joint Operations Center; and Information Systems Support.

The work envisioned under this contract will be performed at DTRA headquarters at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, says the notice.
