NGA releases EMERALD RFP
On August 28, the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency announced that the EMERALD RFP has been posted on the unclassified IC-ARC. Questions about the RFP are due no later than 12:00pm EST on September 14.
The Emerald Program has been previously referred to as the RDAS Follow-On, RDAS II and Business Management Solutions (BMS). This effort redefines the Resource, Decision, and Acquisition Support (RDAS) program approach and encompasses a similar, but not identical, scope. Furthermore, it reorganizes the approach for satisfying the government’s support needs for Lifecycle Acquisition Support activities, Strategic Financial Management Support activities, and Strategic Business Management Support activities.
The EMERALD program will support the accomplishment of the NGA mission by providing support services that enable effective program management, financial management and acquisition support of specific programs, organizations, processes and procedures. RDAS currently provides approximately 700 contractors in support of 39 Blocks of Work (equivalent to task orders). The EMERALD Program office plans to capture these requirements in new task orders and to award the task orders prior to the expiration of the RDAS contract.
