NGA posts visual comms RFI

On November 3, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) posted a request for information for Visual Communications Services. Responses are due by 3:00 p.m. Eastern on November 17.

This is a non-personal services contract to provide Visual Communications Services (VCS). The Government shall not exercise any supervision or control over the contract service providers performing the services herein. Such contract service providers shall be accountable solely to the Contractor who, in turn, is responsible to the Government.

The purpose of this RFI is to determine those who can satisfy the requirements for a potential RFP.  NGA is interested in feedback on the VCS RFI.  VCS is the follow-on contract to the current Visual Communications Services contract.  A draft of the VCS Performance Work Statement (PWS) is attached in SAM for industry review and comment.

The intent is for industry to share their experiences with similar efforts and to provide comments and suggestions on providing visual communication services for the NGA. The Government plans to use the information provided by industry to develop a comprehensive procurement strategy. Any information used will be on a non-attribution basis.

The Government is interested in industry ideas regarding acquisition approach, contract structure, and best practices that are conducive to today’s environments & technologies that best meet the requirements.  The government is interested in offerors’ ability to leverage industry best practices.

Full information is available here.
