Riddle us this - since July 4th is on a Wednesday, do we celebrate the weekend before, after, or just the whole week? Anyways, let's get to reading!

The Pulse Industry Exposé is our bread and butter. It is this kind of knowledge sharing that inspired The Pulse in the first place. We have kept our eyes open and our ears to the ground to identify the status (whether they are cancelled, pre-solicitation, or awarded) of impactful contracts across the Federal Government. We have also identified past and upcoming industry conferences and events. This information is not exhaustive, but it is contextual. We are not only telling you the what - we strive to make connections that provide you with the why.

$113,704,549.91 15-Jun-18 So something
  went down at the State Department and we think it has something to do with
  the major leadership changes. On May 24th the Government released a pre-RFP
  notice stating that they would be releasing their $113M OBO Program
  Management re-compete on or around the end of June. But on June 15th, the
  Government decided to cancel this re-compete until further notice. We covered
  this pre-solicitation in our last June expose' - read our full analysis here.

  IT Contracting Directorate, Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) canceled this
  notice of intent to award a sole source contract to Gartner, Inc. due to a
  change in acquisition strategy. IT Contracting intends to pursue a
  delivery/task order through GSA.

DISA just
  published its cloud browser strategy. What's yours? DISA, as the network
  operator for arguably the largest private network in the world, needed to
  consider solutions out of the box. The result is this RFI for a cloud-based
  browser. RFI responses are due June 29th.
Communication Technical Support Services - IV DISA 831812133 -  $                   668,001,432.56 06/2018
  is exploring its fourth iteration of its Communication Technical Support
  Services (CTSS) contract. Developed prior to September 11, 2011 - this single
  award program has grown from supporting five steady state bases (CTSS I -
  2003) to supporting Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom (CTSS II - 2007) to
  supporting Operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom, and Inherent Resolve
  (CTSS III - 2015). Lockheed Martin was the winning contractor until GDIT took
  it over in 2015. GDIT's OY2 was excercised just a few months ago in March -
  so we don't anticipate this dropping any time soon - but we did find the
  acquisition roles interesting. According to recent Industry Day slides, the
  U.S. Air Forces Central Command (AFCENT) is the end-user, DISA serves as the
  administrative authority and procuring authority....but GSA is going to serve
  as the Contracting Officer's Representative. We wonder if the addition of the
  GSA might throw a wrench in this contract - as GSA has another best-in-class
  (BIC) vehicle for these types of requirements.

  and PII. RFI responses are due July 3rd.
VET TEC VA 36C10E18Q9378 - - - TBD:
  Shaping Opportunity
  August 16, 2017, the President signed into law the Harry W. Colmery Veterans
  Educational Assistance Act of 2017, (Public Law 115-48), also known as the
  “Forever GI Bill.” This Act brings the most significant changes to Veterans
  educational benefits since the Post-9/11 GI Bill and has spawned the birth of
  the "Veteran Employment through Technology Education Courses" or
  "VET TEC". VET TEC will be a five year pilot program which is aimed
  to offer eligible Veterans an opportunity to enroll in technology programs in
  order to obtain meaningful employement. 
70FA5018R00000019  $               6,500,000.00  -   10/2018 (Est.)  TBD:
  Shaping Opportunity
  to Presidential Policy Directive 8: National Preparedness (PPD-8), the nation
  must maintain a level of preparedness for the full spectrum of hazards and
  threats which face the country. National Preparedness requires efforts to be
  made across five mission areas: prevention, protection, response, recovery,
  and mitigation. Challenges exist in executing the five mission areas against
  chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) hazards. CBRN hazards,
  therefore, pose unique problem sets requiring a dedicated team to research,
  collaborate, advise, and develop solutions for effective and prompt emergency
  management decisions to save lives, property, and the environment. GovCon,
  help FEMA solve their unique CBRN problems!

  U.S. Citizenship Immigration Services (USCIS) Office of Information
  Technology (OIT) has an ongoing requirement for Agile Testing Services (ATS).
  Previously competed under EAGLE II (Unrestricted), CAPGEMINI is the current
  incumbent supporting this program with the period of performance ending March
  2019. An interesting addition to this "pilot program" RFI is the
  requirement for Robotic Process Automation/Machine Learning.

  - this has been a long time coming. In 2011, NASA announced that it had hit a
  "milestone for institutional asset management" by finally
  delivering a path towards more sustainable infrastructure Agency-wide. Fast
  forward to 2016, NASA released their Business Services Assessment (BSA) which
  stated it was still looking to "develop an integrated Agency master
  plan" for their facility operations. And now today, in 2018, NASA has
  finally released its draft RFP to consolidate all of it’s individual A-E
  contracts under an IDIQ. This A-E Master Plan IDIQ will support the NASA
  Enterprise in its entirety. This includes their Headquarters, 10 NASA Centers
  and all field sites. For those that just like data, here is something
  interesting we found in these reports - both in 2011 and 2016, NASA stated
  that "NASA facilities are on an unsustainable cost trajectory with 80%
  of facilities beyond their design-life". We are wondering what that
  percentage would be if it wasn't cut and pasted? Gotta keep up with the times
  NASA - and your facilities - if you want to compete with #SPACEFORCE.

  US Census Bureau’s American Community Survey Office (ACSO) does not have the
  bandwidth to support the Census Bureau’s data mission - so they need your
  help GovCon. The objectives under this contract are to perform critical
  project coordination tasks to meet deadlines for ACS custom tabulation
  releases and complex data product specification development for custom
  tabulations scheduled to be done in calendar years 2016 and 2017. In order to
  do so, the branch requires the assistance of an expert in the field of data

  was due) citing changes to the requirements and has put it back on the street
  as an RFI. RFI responses are now due June 28th. RFI solicitation number is

Jul-18 The
  purpose of this effort is to decrease procurement costs and improve
  efficiency through leveraging economies of scale.  HHS fully intends on using A.I. to
  intelligently manage all functions from the beginning to the end of the total
  acquisition process. Not only will it interact with multiple systems
  currently resident in the HHS inventory, but will also need to interact with
  an eCommerce solution.  It will be
  charged with delivering highly specialized real time reporting along the
  entire acquisition life cycle.  HHS

MDA MDA18THRFI01  $          
 $                   461,838,763.34  09/2018 (Est.)  May-19 The
  Missile Defense Agency (MDA) continues to work with Lockheed Martin (current
  incumbent) to develop, procure, and sustain the Terminal High Altitude Area
  Defense (THAAD) Weapon System for the U.S. Army. The THAAD Weapon system is
  in the Operations and Sustainment (O&S) phase of its Life Cycle. During
  this phase, the THAAD Project Office is focused on supporting the Warfighter
  by executing the sustainment strategy, monitoring the performance of the
  system, assessing the effectiveness and affordability of the product support
  strategy, and making adjustments to the product support package. Lockheed's
  period of performance is up in December 2019 so we assume the final RFP will
  be dropped sometime next year...if it isn't J&A'd in Lockheed's direction.

  General Services Administration (GSA) seeks to modernize, streamline and ease
  the use of its strategic sourcing and category management Purchasing Channel
  Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) for their Purchasing Channel customer
  agencies and industry partners, giving customers a wide array of products at
  competitive prices, with the fastest possible delivery and reliable order
  fulfillment. GSA intends to establish Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) with
  industry partners who hold Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) 51V, 73 and 75. The
  current generation of the Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) Federal
  Strategic Sourcing Initiative (FSSI) Best In Class (BIC) Purchasing Channel
  BPAs as well as Janitorial and Sanitation (JanSan) FSSI BIC Purchasing Channel
  BPAs, will be expiring soon; current expiration dates are February 2019 for
  MRO and July 2019 for JanSan. Rather than continue to establish each vehicle
  separately, GSA is combining the two solutions into one for a more efficient
  acquisition vehicle and an improved customer experience.

USAMRMC Office of Regulated Activities Support Services USAMRMC W81XWH18RFISLC1 - - 09/12/2018
Sep-18 In
  FY17, the DRAC and CSSD division were combined into ORA. This has also
  resulted in preservation of the eight (8) branches that were evident in DRAC
  and CSSD, largely diving regulatory support functions through technical
  deliverable silos. ORA is exploring ways to have sponsor responsibilities met
  via a contracting vehicle that will enhance our productivity and meet TSG
  deliverables in a timely manner. A critical aspect of this RFI is to better
  understand how GovCon would approach delivering regulatory support and
  whether functional organization around regulatory support teams (RST)
  consisting of members representing various regulatory functional areas is a
  feasible alternative and consistent with industry best-practice.

  directly supports Phase III “Achieving Culture Change” of the Army’s Sexual
  Assault Prevention strategy map by helping to change the participants’
  attitudes and decrease acceptance of rape myths, to include victim blaming.
  The winning GovCon will provide military personnel and family members with an
  interactive, scenario based SHARP intervention training with the goal of:
  decreasing their acceptance of the rape myths; discontinuing the use of
  language that focuses on victim blaming; learning the precise words and
  skills to ensure partners boundaries are respected at all times; and making a
  conscious decision to “ask first” to gain a partners consent.

  Contracts kills another one! Soraya Correa, Chief Procurement Officer at DHS,
  said she sees "the future of EAGLE III looking very different from what
  EAGLE II looks like today." Correa is working with John Zangardi, the
  DHS chief information officer, on the follow-on for EAGLE and FLASH, which
  was an innovative multi-vendor $1.5 billion small business set aside for
  agile software development services that the department canceled last spring.
  EAGLE III and FLASH will “probably be a combined procurement” that will also
  “probably be a little more uniquely tailored to DHS,” Correa said at DHS
  Industry Day that was hosted by Washington Technology. After canceling FLASH
  last year, DHS officials still said they want to be innovative in their
  approaches to IT acquisitions.
