USCYBERCOM issues RFI
On April 19, the United States Cyber Command posted a request for information (Solicitation Number: HB0001-18-R-0009). Responses are due by 10:00 a.m. Eastern on May 10.
The RFI is issued to seek feedback on a Statement of Work (SOW) for an interested party to support the multiple input/out USCYBERCOM Cross Domain Solution (CDS) Guard Farm. This is a Request for Information (RFI) only. This is not a Request for Proposals (RFP). No solicitation is available at this time.
The United States Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) has a need to move data securely between USCYBERCOM, Intelligence Community (IC), Department of Defense (DoD), and commercial networks. This boundary solution, the Cyber Command Guard Farm (CCGF1) will provide robust boundary security and mediation of data and information sources. A secondary Cyber Command Guard Farm (CCGF2) solution will protect and buttress the CCGF1 at the network layer and may additionally serve as an enterprise boundary.
The Government will maintain, replicate and expand these boundary solutions for deployment in support of enterprise and mission systems. The initial CCGF1 will be designed, implemented and accredited by a partnering government agency. Once accreditation is approved, the CCGF1 will be maintained by the USCYBERCOM. Based on the architecture created by CCGF1, CCGF2 will be procured and maintained by USCYBERCOM.
The objective of the CCGF Support Services effort is to provide support services to maintain a scalable network security boundary for USCYBERCOM that is based on industry best practices, and to implement those best practices securely and adeptly. The objective is to obtain technical and management support to improve the inherent security of USCYBERCOM’s boundary through actionable engineering practices and in concert with host agency best practices. USCYBERCOM requires engineering and information technology (IT) services to support the CCGF program’s efforts. These services include but aren’t limited to network security and CDS design, testing, implementation, sustainment, lab management support, and process engineering.
