NGA to host industry day for FGCMS acquisition
On April 26, the National-Geospatial Intelligence Agency posted a notice announcing an upcoming industry day.
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), Office of Contract Services (OCS) will host an Industry Day on 11 May 2016 at the Acquisition Center of Excellence (ACE) Conference Center – Main Auditorium in Chantilly, VA for the Foundation GEOINT Content Management Services (FGCMS) acquisition.
The Government anticipates executing a single contract award to provide Information Technology services in support of the modernization of NGA’s Foundation Geospatial-Intelligence (GEOINT) (FG) mission. Part of the requirements includes the modernization and sustainment of production environments used in the Foundation GEOINT (FG). These production environments included the many, varied domains of FG–aeronautical, maritime, topography, human geography, geographic names, boundaries, elevation, controlled imagery, gravity, global positioning system, and geodetic surveys. The second part of the requirements supports the development of a common dissemination environment for the sharing of content from the varied domains. FGCMS will use agile methodologies to accomplish these support services.
This Industry Day event will provide a forum for personnel (or representatives) from NGA’s IT Services Directorate, Content Services Office (TIC) and NGA’s Source Foundation Group (SF) to present an overview of the FGCMS effort. The event will also foster networking, improve collaboration, increase opportunities for competition and subcontracting, and exchange information between the Government and Industry in regards to the Government’s intent to award a competitive contract for FGCMS.
