R--Security Business Transformation (SBT)

Department of the Army, U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command | Published July 17, 2015  -  Deadline July 30, 2015
cpvs

This effort focuses primarily on the transformation of Army security programs in support of the Army Personnel Security, Suitability and Insider Threat mission to include; 1) process improvement and process optimization; 2) evaluating new mission requirements and providing project schedule to incorporate required systems enhancements; and 3) providing technology planning and analysis, including related support tasks. Awarding this contract will ensure continuation of critical services and embedded contractor effort within the Personnel Security Investigation Center of Excellence (PSI-CoE), while satisfying increased tempo/volume of functional requirements related to the personnel security and suitability mission. The contractor shall provide full-scope project management support; Information Technology (IT) operation and maintenance support activities for the current Army Investigative Enterprise Solution (AIES) that include front end portal and back end integration with other DOD and Federal systems of record and; support to the PSI-CoE team in establishing and running its change control board (CCB) and process review board (PRB). The period of performance for this effort will be a base period of eight (8) months from 16 August 2015 to 15 April 2016. Place of Contract Performance: Government Facility - PSI-CoE #3240, Raritan Avenue, APG, MD 21005-5001 Set-aside Status. Sole Source - The Government will issue a J&A citing appropriate authority to execute a sole source award to the incumbent contractor that is a small business. The SBT system is currently undergoing an upgrade to modernize and increase efficiencies. Transition of this system to another contractor at this critical time may result in a loss of the current project momentum. Future gains in efficiency will be delayed also causing a delay in realizing potential reductions in operational costs. Contracting for continued services is essential to maintain the PSI-CoE's current production system, prevent unacceptable delays and duplication of cost to the Government in fulfilling agency requirements until the Personnel Security Investigation Portal 2.0 (PSIP 2.0) is complete and the effort can be re-competed. The PSI-CoE relies on the PSIP system to receive and process more than 120,000 PSI requests annually. If one or both components of the PSIP system were to fail or have significant downtime, customers across the Army would be impacted. The PSI-CoE relies on the Remedy database for processing all PSI requests received. When the Remedy program or associated database is non-accessible, work essentially stops at the PSI-CoE. Depending on the downtime involved, Civilian and Contractor employees are sent home until the issue is resolved. Additionally, the backlog caused by system downtime can take weeks and even months to overcome depending on the length and extent of the outage. This negatively affects Army readiness with Soldiers, Civilians, and Contractors that are unable to perform their required mission because they are unable to meet the investigation requirements. The completion timeline is projected to span the performance period of this contract. Once the current upgrade is completed, codified for transition to a Government system, and achieves full operational capability to support assumption of system operations and sustainment by the Government, any follow-on support services will be competed under existing INSCOM contract vehicles or full and open via FedBizOpps.
