RFI information appears below:
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) is seeking additional information on how interested contractors could provide Information Technology (IT) services to develop Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) capabilities. NGA is soliciting market information from interested vendors to refine requirements and develop an acquisition strategy to apply agile software development methodology to modernize multiple GEOINT functions and capabilities.
The purpose of this Request For Information (RFI) is to obtain information in support of market research efforts and continue a dialogue with industry to discuss ideas and approaches to shape an overall strategy, methodology, and process for the agile software development of multiple systems, domains, applications, and data repositories spanning multiple portfolios.
NGA’s Maritime Safety Office has a need to modernize the Maritime Publication portfolio including on-line automatic updating; creating seamless worldwide coverage; expanding its content sources; improving the quality of content, history and source tracking; data sharing; flexible internet display; incorporating data into Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) platforms and NGA’s Map of the World (MOW) (Mapping API); and incorporating future international standards. Furthermore, the Maritime Publications Database will be designed in a flexible manner to align with future Maritime initiatives within Foundation GEOINT Modernization (FG MOD).
