NGA posts update on Foundation GEOINT Content Management Services solicitation
On August 24, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency posted a notice to update industry on the Foundation GEOINT Content Management Services solicitation.
Solicitation Number HM0476-16-R-0019 has been delayed in order to reexamine the scope and objectives of FGCMS. NGA is considering a new acquisition strategy primarily focused on providing GEOINT Services for FG Modernization and not on legacy system sustainment.
Market research will continue during this time to analyze the type of anticipated services, sources, alternative contract vehicles, extent of small business participation, etc. Current planning envisions release of revised requirements documentation, a Draft Request for Proposal (RFP), and holding another Industry Day.
While the Government, after conducting a thorough analysis of all market research efforts, requirements, funding, etc., expects to issue a solicitation for the procurement of FGCMS at a future date, NGA has not committed itself to doing so. Therefore, Industry should not construe this status update as a commitment from the Government to issue a RFP. If a decision is made to release a Draft RFP or RFP for FGCMS, NGA/OCS will post a notice of proposed contract action on the FBO website directing interested parties to the Unclassified ARC website.
