DIA issues RFP for intell analysis support

The Defense Intelligence Agency issued Sept. 14 its much-talked about solicitation to consolidate about 30 contracts into one indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity type for intelligence analysis support.

The five-year contract with a ceiling of $1 billion will provide the Defense Department's intelligence community with contractor support in 29 areas, including computer network operations, emerging and disruptive technologies, military research and development, weapons of mass destruction, and supporting infrastructure.

“Successful Solutions for Intelligence Analysis (SIA) primes will have the capability to augment the full range of enterprisewide intelligence issues,” the request for proposals states. “SIA provides greater flexibility to realign government resources by permitting consolidations when practical, improve oversight via a single effectively managed vehicle and [be] responsive to customers with a streamlined process to competitively obtain and manage contract intelligence analyst services.”

Responses to the RFP are due Oct. 16.

DIA said in the RFP that vendors should have top-secret facility clearance when submitting proposals, and each task order will specify the type of clearance needed at that time.

DIA issued a pre-RFP in late August, but it took more than a month than planned to issue the RFP.

“The intent of the SIA contract vehicle is to streamline the acquisition of contractor augmentation for the Defense Intelligence Enterprise,” the RFP states.
