On August 17, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency posted a request for information to modernize intelligence publication and dissemination systems (GSSIPDM). Responses are due by 4:00 p.m. Eastern on September 5.

The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) in support of the GEOINT Services is seeking to modernize the Publication and Dissemination systems for standard and non-standard intelligence. The purpose of this RFI is to conduct market research on potential qualified and interested vendors; and to seek input from industry that will help NGA to develop a strategy to modernize both publication and dissemination systems through agile development and delivery methods.

NGA tentatively intends to solicit and award a single award GSA Task Order under Schedule 70, SIN 132 51 with services beginning in early Fiscal Year 2019. The planned period of performance is a Base Six (6) Months with Three (3) Option Periods of six (6) months.

  • Modernize the Publication and Dissemination Systems using industry best practices and standards, and agile development processes using the latest web-based software language with mature and cutting edge coding methodologies.

  • Provide a content management system that will be accessible to all NGA users for creating, archiving, and distributing NGA’s text-based standard imagery derived intelligence products.

  • The Publication and Dissemination systems need to have the ability to Create, Read, Update, Delete (CRUD) following IC and NGA standards.

  • Provide NGA with tools and processes necessary to produce finished intelligence (FINTEL) products to include; tracking, routing, metrics, dynamic dashboards, design, workflow, file conversions and validation.

  • Deliver reusable services that are able to ingest standard and non-standard content into the dissemination system.

  • Provide a standardized interface that is usable by multiple content generating systems.

  • The System will have the ability to support Intelligence Security Markings (ISM) compliance tools to handle classification rollups and dissemination based on classification.

  • The System will have the ability to support back-end, fine-grain access control that can query content via a REST API and have the ability to return content in structured formats.

  • Use the fine-grain access control services to create a data flow for timely dissemination of publications to the appropriate security domains and external services such as the Library of National Intelligence (LNI).

  • Integrate with NGA’s Enterprise Identity and Access Management (GEOAxIS) to authenticate and regulate user access as well as integrate with enterprise services.

  • Achieve dissemination by integrating with existing enterprise cross-domain appliance solutions (one-way transfer) from high to low, on multiple domains and networks, and/or utilizing the automated ingest software and manual transfer using CDs.
