DISA extends Encore II proposals deadline

The Defense Information Systems Agency said it will extend the due date for proposals on its $13 billion Encore II enterprise services contract beyond the end of this month.

Bids had been due Jan. 30, but a DISA spokesman said an internal Defense Department review will require revisions to the Encore II request for proposals, released Dec. 5, 2005.

DISA expects to release a new deadline later this week, the spokesman said, adding that the agency is working on the revisions DOD requested.

DISA plans to use Encore II to support users in the military services and defense agencies as they transition from existing systems to another important DISA project, Net-Centric Enterprise Services. Encore II will help them effectively use core NCES product lines, including collaboration and discovery tools and a planned defensewide knowledge portal, the RFP states.

Air Force Lt. Gen. Charles Croom, DISA's director, said he expects the agency to award more than nine contracts for Encore II, which has a five-year baseline and the option for another five years.
