The Government is conducting market research to identify potential sources that possess the expertise, capabilities, and experience to meet qualification requirements for providing essential capabilities in support of the 16th Air Force (AF) Cyber Operations (CyO) and Information Operations (IO) Formal Training Unit (FTU). This contract provides subject matter expertise (SME) and other essential capabilities to augment and support the mission of CyO and IO Initial Qualification Training (IQT) in support of Air Combat Command (ACC), Air Force Cyber (AFCYBER), US Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM), and the US Government. The Government’s notional acquisition strategy is to award an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) five-year contract. This strategy has not been approved to date and is subject to change over the course of the acquisition.
The mission of the 39 IOS and their mission partners is to provide IQT for Airmen to plan and execute missions requiring CyO and IO capabilities. The 39 IOS, as the CyO and IO FTU, provides supplemental skills training (SST), Initial Qualification Training (IQT), and advanced training for CyO and IO.
