NGA extends AWS due date
On March 12, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency posted an update to its Analysis Workflow Services (AWS) software development RFI. This amendment extends the current response due date from 12:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, March 14, to the new response due date of 12:00 p.m. EST on Friday, March 16.
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) in support of the Analysis Workflow Services Program Office is seeking information on how interested contractors could provide the services via modular contracts.
NGA is moving current analytic requirement work orchestration capabilities into the future. As part of this movement, NGA will replace, modify, or re-host sections of the current work orchestration system, Cedalion, to meet the needs of evolving tradecraft. Specifically, where it is beneficial NGA will 1) replace outdated capabilities with new capabilities; 2) modify, or evolve, current capabilities; or 3) re-host current capabilities, not related to work orchestration, to other NGA service providers.
The focus is on analytic work orchestration and task management services not exploitation, collection, or content services.
The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to gain information on current Industry practices that would meet NGA’s requirements.
NGA continues to perform engineering analysis to identify tools and services that will provide capabilities to execute the transformed analytic mission. NGA envisions a decentralized cloudbased architecture comprised of a series of standards based, interoperable services and tools that will support the entire National System for Geospatial-lntelligence (NSG) and Allied System for Geospatial-lntelligence (ASG). The new NGA architecture will include elements that enable implementation of initiatives such as Broker and Object Based Production; leverage projected advances in the fields of Automation, Augmentation, and Artificial Intelligence; and realize the long term objective of providing anticipatory intelligence.
