NGA posts foundational data solicitation

On February 27, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) posted a solicitation for foundational data on North Korea. Proposals are due by 1:00 p.m. Central on March 29.

This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial products prepared in accordance with the format in subpart 12.6, as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; proposals are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued beyond this notice. This requirement does not constitute a small business set-aside and is being conducted as a full-and-open competition.

The mission of the NGA is to provide GEOINT for the nation’s security, enabling customer success through assured access to and confidence in GEOINT data, capabilities, and insights. The mission of the Analysis Directorate is to develop exceptional analytic expertise and mission partner liaisons to deliver integrated GEOINT that informs and enables national security missions. This acquisition is intended to deliver a nation-wide geospatial database of North Korea’s political, economic, cultural and security facilities.

This acquisition builds upon previous efforts to explore the diversification of our production of analytic products. While NGA has in the past utilized contract analytic expertise on site, this acquisition intends to scale efforts to include offsite resources and improve the delivery of analytic products in a dynamic, scalable manner, delivered to NGA analysts and analytic managers as a service. In this case, NGA is requiring a vendor to deliver a one-time dataset with several thousand previously North Korean foundational features and sites, identified using native North Korean naming conventions, without the increased analytic burden of locating, characterizing, and researching.

Review the NGA foundational data solicitation.
