USMS seeks OSINT solution

On June 8, the United States Marshals Service (USMS) posted a request for information for an open source intelligence (OSINT) solution. Responses are due by 10:00 a.m. Eastern on June 16.

USMS’ commitment to protecting the federal judiciary involves resolving thousands of threats and inappropriate communications against protected persons and facilities annually with a handful of protective intelligence professionals assigned to the Office of Protective Intelligence (OPI). OPI has a limited ability to address the recent explosion of online and social media-based threats and is in desperate need of a technical solution. Currently, OPI reviews publicly available web-based content reactively regarding known high-profile judicial events, rulings, and publicly and non-publicly available web-based content relevant to ongoing investigations.

The objective of this solicitation is to acquire a tailored technical solution that will enable OPI to identify potential threats. The tailored technical solution will exponentially increase OPI’s ability to investigate and mitigate potential threats more quickly. Proactive review of web-based content associated with protected persons, facilities, and events will enable the USMS to improve its ability to assign the right level of resources.

To enhance its current capability, OPI is seeking a technical solution that will allow for comprehensive and tailorable automated alerts and searches of publicly available content online. The Contractor shall provide an Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) solution that enables OPI to achieve its operational goals. OPI is not seeking reputation management software.
