In an effort to increase Information Technology (IT) efficiencies, lower risk and increase the probability of success with the computing platform, Solution Delivery Division (SDD) has decided to migrate DISA-located systems from a “customer-owned hardware” hosting model to a “capacity services” hosting model. The result will be a virtual computing platform in a modified IaaS virtual environment suited for SDD that will support SDD business requirements, ease operational challenges and achieve the highest efficiencies possible in IT operating environments given budgetary constraints.
The objective of this Request for Information (RFI) is to seek qualified small business for technical support services in the area of program and engineering support for the ongoing migration of the SDD systems and applications from the existing operating environments and hardware to the DISA provided operating environments and hardware. Additionally, SDD is seeking to standardize and consolidate redundant IT Services and implement a High-Availability (HA) architecture as part of this initiative to increase application availability and enable contingency operations plans. This tasking aligns to the SDD Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Due to the criticality and wide variety of IT projects, the qualified small business must possess and demonstrate the ability to provide knowledgeable and experienced technical resources to support multiple concurrent projects.
G2X TAKE: This task to support the migration of the existing Solution Delivery Division applications, which include a wide-variety of COTS technologies with web-based, application tier, and database tier components, into an IaaS virtual environment will draw a lot of interest.
Do note that NikSoft Systems Corp. was awarded two consecutive 8(a) competed contracts for defense health services capacity services project management support, each valued at $4M, with the most recent scheduled to end in October of 2016.
