The Missile and Space Intelligence Center (MSIC) at Redstone Arsenal in Alabama wants to award a contract to a woman-owned small business vendor that can provide access control-related security services at the MSIC.

The requirement indicates that the chosen contractor will “provide unarmed personnel to perform access control to Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) and secure areas controlled by the Missile and Space Intelligence Center (MSIC), monitor and respond as necessary to Intrusion Detection System (IDS) alarms, man Access Control Points (ACPs), perform classified waste collection/removal/destruction services, and escort uncleared personnel at the Richard C.
