POC Richard Garrison, Technical Representative (202) 231-2387
DESC: The Virginia Contracting Activity, on behalf of the Defense
  Intelligence Agency (DIA) is seeking qualified sources to provide
  the following information technology (IT) services to develop
  a source list for future possible procurement. These services
  include all tasks related to the management, operation, maintenance
  and support of DIA classified and unclassified networks. This
  procurement may consolidate a number of existing IT support
  contracts and provide for additional services not included
  in existing contracts.  The systems to be supported by this
  contract are located in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area,
  throughout the Continental United States (CONUS), U.S. Embassies
  and other locations worldwide. The successful service provider
  must be able to provide local, CONUS, and global systems services
  with a high level of expertise and responsiveness. A U.S. security
  clearance is a condition of employment. Contractor personnel
  shall be required to be United States citizens that possess
  Top Secret, Sensitive, Compartmented Intelligence (TS/SCI)
  clearances and have successfully completed a CI polygraph.
  Contractors must be able to administer classified contracts.
    This procurement will include tasks necessary to provide
  the complete range of system engineering, network engineering,
  integration, network management, configuration management,
  operations, maintenance and support services for all DIA networks.
  The vendors who are able to comply with the requirements of
  this notice will be requested to attend a more detailed briefing.
  The vendors shall provide the names and clearance information
  to the DIA facility when requested to do so. This meeting will
  provide interested vendors the opportunity to discuss in more
  detail classified issues the vendors should know about before
  identifying what levels of support they may be able to provide.
  Deliverables will include data in the form of presentation
  materials (overheads, briefing aids, etc.), reference guides,
  revisions to existing Government documents and Interface Control
  Documents (ICD), white papers, program plans and other general
  material as required (analysis, plans, schedules). Responsiveness
  and timeliness are critical factors for these tasks. While
  the majority of work is accomplished during regular duty hours
  (7:00am - 5:00pm, M-F), DIA operates 24 hours per day, 7 days
  per week, 365 days per year. There is no time when systems
  services are not required, and there must always be personnel
  available during normal duty hours and on-call to resolve IT
  systems issues. The time required to have someone on-site after
  notification can range from one to four hours, with recall
  times dependent on the problem at hand. Successful contractors
  must be able to demonstrate an integrated and automated support
  and tracking process for user assistance, troubleshooting and
  maintenance. In addition, contractors must be able to provide
  on-site and remote help desk and maintenance services to large,
  widely dispersed organizations with an extensive inventory
  of multi-vendor systems. Contractors must be thoroughly familiar
  with Department of Defense (DoD), Defense Information Systems
  Command (DISA) and Diplomatic Telecommunications Service (DTS)
  networks and must be able to manage multilevel secure worldwide
  networks using a variety of automated software management tools.
    Services that may be required include, but are not limited
  to, the following: desktop outsourcing: on-site and remote
  help desk services, on-site and on-call maintenance for multi-vendor
  systems, system upgrades and enhancements, system and network
  design, network management, network performance assessment,
  system tuning, application installation, user training on applications
  (COTS and DIA-specific intelligence applications), client optimization,
  and administration and optimization of servers and printers.
    DIA requires a contractor support cadre of highly skilled
  systems analysts, engineers, and application specialists to
  handle a myriad of issues related to the architecture, planning,
  implementation and operation of a complex and diverse set of
  systems and networks. These personnel will augment DIA staff
  to solve the most complex integrated system problems. Such
  personnel need to be experts and certified in the Microsoft
  NT operating system. While Unix (SUN Solaris 2.x) and Pentium-based
  Microsoft NT 4.0 are the most prevalent environments, DIA also
  maintains IBM S/390 systems running modern IBM operating systems
  and services; Hewlett Packard servers and user agents for the
  Defense Message System (DMS); some Digital Equipment Corporation
  Unix servers and clients (Alpha class). Our Huntsville, Alabama
  site has a host of high performance computers including Crays
  and high end SGI systems in a clustered environment. Applications
  to be supported include a variety of databases, Microsoft Office
  products, Netscape, Lotus Domino/Notes, and many other GOTS
  and COTS products. Communications services include a variety
  of encryption devices, routers, gateways, Ethernet LANs (TCI/IP),
  ATM and associated equipment/protocols.   DIA's network architecture
  will be significantly influenced by the requirement to migrate
  a number of existing secure networks into multilevel networks,
  the increasing need to share and access information across
  the intelligence community, and the requirement to be compatible
  with common DoD standards. Successful contractors must have
  a thorough understanding of DoD network architecture and security
  requirements, as well as significant experience in secure systems
  engineering. Contractors must be able to use current and future
  technology to develop the best security solutions for DIA networks.
    High level services that may be required include, but are
  not limited to, the following: secure network architecture,
  design, and engineering; secure system integration and testing;
  analysis of current systems and processes and introduction
  of appropriate new technologies; migration of a variety of
  networks to Microsoft NT and DMS compliant systems; Year 2000
  (Y2K) testing, compliance verification, and remediation; directory
  services design and development; a variety of secure network
  solutions, including the introduction of multilevel, DMS-compliant
  mail guards into existing networks as well as connectivity
  between databases on different system-high networks; INFOSEC
  assessments and training; DoD security certification and accreditation
  support; LAN/WAN configuration management; and database administration.
    All systems services must be coordinated with close precision.
  Any system change can have a dramatic impact on activities
  across the global network. Services management, therefore,
  is fundamental to this task, and successful contractors must
  be able to demonstrate the ability to provide a high degree
  of management expertise. Experience in a global U.S. intelligence
  systems support environment is highly desired. The ability
  to surge personnel from one global area to another is a requirement.
  The ability to rapidly surge resources and skills beyond the
  specific staff supporting DIA is critically important due to
  the rapidly changing nature of local and global situations.
  DIA has the requirement for flexibility, strong technical expertise
  across a broad range of skills, a deep pool of SCI-indoctrinated
  talent, exceptional management support and the willingness
  to get the job done.   It is anticipated that a significant
  effort will be required over the next few years to upgrade
  DIA's IT systems overseas. This is a requirement based in part
  on DIA's planned capital equipment replacement program. It
  is important to recognize that DIA's IT environment is a unified
  architecture; what is used in the Washington metropolitan area
  is also used at DIA sites elsewhere in CONUS, 120+ Embassies
  and other sites world wide. Changes to one component of DIA's
  IT system at any single location may have significant effects
  across the global architecture. Contractors must have facilities
  in CONUS for the staging, integration, testing and shipping
  of secure systems for overseas installation without being associated
  with the U.S. Government. Many overseas DIA networks and systems
  are based on TEMPEST hardware; therefore TEMPEST-certified
  engineers are required for the majority of overseas installation
  and maintenance visits. Due to the requirement for timely response
  to overseas network problems, contractors must be able to provide
  rapid troubleshooting and maintenance support for secure systems
  worldwide both remote and on-site  Visits to sites for upgrades,
  new installations and maintenance are a special challenge and
  must be well planned. Travelers will at times face long transits,
  the inconvenience of lesser-developed, politically unstable
  countries, and need to solve challenging technical issues without
  support from staff or resources in CONUS. Support to facilities
  demands that individuals possess strong competency in the installation
  and troubleshooting of local area networks, operating systems
  and personal computers. The ability to provide customer training
  in application use and basic troubleshooting techniques is
  an added requirement. The target environment for these overseas
  sites is Pentium processor-based systems running the Microsoft
  Windows NT 4.0 operating system. Applications include Microsoft
  Office 97 and Lotus Domino/Notes E-mail. Communication protocols
  include X.25 and TCP/IP. Bandwidth ranges from 9.6 Kbs to T1
  speed; the majority of DIA's overseas network operates at the
  19.2 Kbs to 64Kbs speed. DIA usually sends teams of two to
  four individuals (depending on the site's size and complexity)
  for one to three weeks per new site installation or upgrade;
  teams may visit more than one site before returning to CONUS.
  On occasions it is necessary to increase trip duration and/or
  divert travelers to different locations when emergency repairs
  are required.   DIA anticipates an increase in the requirement
  for a variety of Internet and Intranet support services, as
  the intelligence community migrates to web-based services and
  applications. Services that may be required include, but are
  not limited to, the following: web-based publishing; web site
  design and maintenance; web-based application development and
  integration; web-based training; and management of Intranet
  networks. Successful contractors must be able to demonstrate
  the ability to provide these services over a variety of secure
  networks and protocols.  The successful vendor will have
  the ability to work with the vendors whose hardware and software
  are procured by the Government. This includes integration and
  maintenance support of the hardware and software. Vendor must
  demonstrate the ability to maintain equipment on a worldwide
  basis.  Technicians are permanently located at the following
  location: Stuttgart, Germany; Japan; Korea; Miami, FL; Los
  Angles, CA; Hawaii and Washington, DC.  In view of the special
  security requirements for this program, the successful vendor
  will have developed and put into practice a process to handle
  all aspects of classified contracting. This includes support
  in contract administration, pricing, ordering, shipping/distribution,
  and warehousing of hardware. The successful vendor must be
  able to demonstrate the process by which classified contracts
  are handled to provide both product and services. Cleared and
  experienced individuals must be trained and in place prior
  to any contract awards to carry out this process in various
  departments within the vendor's organization.   Submissions
  should be limited to five pages and should be pertinent and
  specific to the technical areas under consideration for this
  procurement. Submissions should include the following qualifications:
  (1) Experience - an outline of previous applicable projects
  and specific work previously performed or being performed;
  (2) Personnel - name, professional qualifications and specific
  experience of personnel who will provide the services listed
  above. Knowledge gained through training may be considered.
  Include any other specific and pertinent information pertaining
  to this proposed procurement that would enhance our consideration
  and evaluation of the information submitted.   Vendors interested
  in participating in this Sources Sought announcement are requested
  to contact Mr. Richard Garrison (202) 231-2387 at the Defense
  Intelligence Agency; Attn: SYS-3/Garrison; Bldg. 6000; Bolling
