This Industry Exposé is as crazy as the NCR weather!

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.

USACE W912P517R0004 $ 25,000,000 - 3-Apr-18 Cancelled due to lack of available funding.
Combat Training Center-Joint Readiness Training Center (JRTC),
Fort Polk, Louisiana
Contracting Command
W900KK16RJRTC1 - $ 35,833,501.43 4-Apr-18 US Army decided to fill this requirement through the Alliant contract vehicle. Here is another example of consolidation through GWACs.
Vehicle Pressure Washer NGB W91ZRU18Q5001 - - 4-Apr-18 Someone in the Contracting Office sounds a little bitter. Government reasoning for cancellation: "Solicitation has been canceled due to inability by user to properly define requirements for the pressure washer. The user's need for a vehicle pressure washer still exists, so the Government anticipates a future solicitation to fulfill this requirement. No date has been determined for issuance of an upcoming solicitation at this time."
Strong Bonds Event April 2018 NGB W912NR18Q5009 - - 5-Apr-18 Talk about cold blooded. RFP was released March 28th, due April 4th, and cancelled April 5th due to "change in mission scope". Couldn't let GovCon know a little sooner?
126th Yellow Ribbon Event NGB W91SMC18Q2603 - - 5-Apr-18 Solicitation was cancelled "due to a change in mission requirements". Bummer.
USACE W912QR17R0045 $21,000,000 - 6-Apr-18 Cancelled due to lack of available funding.
Sexual Assault Response Presentations for Security Overseas
19FS1A18Q6000 - - 10-Apr-18 Well this is disappointing. Requirement was "suspended indefinitely".
F-35 Jets Joint Program DoD - - - 11-Apr-18 The U.S. Department of Defense has stopped accepting most deliveries of F-35 jets from Lockheed Martin Corp (LMT.N) because of a dispute over who will cover costs for fixing a production error, Reuters reported. When the Pentagon stops taking delivery of F-35s, foreign customers can also be affected. So far at least two foreign governments have stopped accepting F-35s as a result of this issue, two of the sources said.
DOS 19AQMM18N0043 $225,000,000 $178,754,113.43 11-Apr-18 Interesting. Last funding action was April 12th to the tune of $11K with the PoP ending at the end of May. These services are critical to the efficient operation of the department and include Tier I IT contact handling (450,000 tickets annually), deskside Tier II IT support (over 209,000 service requests & 100,000 incidents annually), service asset and configuration management (SACM) for over 35,000 assets, and other services. We wonder if they're possibly revisiting their acquisition strategy? Your guess is as good as ours!
USPSC Senior Humanitarian Advisor (Multiple Positions) USAID 720FDA18B00052 - - 13-Apr-18 OFDA has decided to cancel this solicitation because the Place of Performance will be changed. OFDA intends to re-solicit the position with the new Place of Performance.

RCO EW AI Challenge
Contracting Command
W56JSR18S0001  -   -  Mar-18 Apr-18 The Army is developing a means of better classifying signals of interest using Artificial Intelligence (AI). The Army RCO is in pursuit of innovative solutions for fighting in an increasingly defense electromagnetic environment against adversaries with well-developed electronic warfare (EW) capabilities. The challenge event will be conducted via the website.

Personnel Security Investigation Services Army
Contracting Command
W91CRB18R0010  $49,660,000.00  $ 20,964,839.90 Apr-18 Apr-18 The,U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command, Personnel Security Investigation,Center of Excellence (PSI-CoE) serves as the Army's centralized activity for,the accurate and efficient administrative validation, review and submission,of all Army (Active, Guard, and Reserve) background investigations required,for Security Clearances, Federal Employment, and Common Access Card (CAC),issuance, while providing customer service and support to Army Stakeholders,worldwide. PSI-CoE requires non-personnel services for the administrative,processing, validation, review, and call center support for personnel,security/suitability background investigations in support of the US Army,missions worldwide. The follow-on contract is looking to be a single award 8a,IDIQ - but be careful, the current incumbent is also an 8a and has been,supporting these requirements since 2014.
Quality Control of the Crash Injury Research and Engineering
Network (CIREN)
693JJ918R000050  -   $1,562,554.00 Apr-18 May-18 The,CIREN program provides insight into developing trends in motor vehicle crash,injury causation. This insight translates into emerging research topics, and,CIREN research projects frequently graduate to full research programs. This,soon-to-be re-competed contract seeks to provide the Office of Vehicle Safety,Research with a mechanism to ensure the quality, completeness, compliance,,and consistency of data collected in the CIREN program. Utilization of a,third-party quality control agent ensures NHTSA can provide the public with,timely data from the investigations of seriously injured victims of traffic,crashes. The findings of the CIREN program will broaden the knowledge of a,wide range of crash victims, crash modes, and injury mechanisms, and shall ultimately,provide a basis for improved vehicle and restraint design. The long-term,outcome of CIREN helps lead to a reduction in serious injuries and fatalities,from motor vehicle crashes. Ordering period of the current incumbent,contract, held by Trustees of Indiana University, is up in September of this,year.
Intelligence Information Reports DSS HS002118Q0003  $2,553,000.00  $2,553,274.00 May-18 May-18 The,Office of Acquisitions, Defense Security Service (DSS), Quantico, Virginia,22134 intends to award an IDIQ contract for GovCon to generate Intelligence,Information Reports (IIRs) in support of the Collection Management Branch,(CMB) at DSS. The Government is on a tight timeline because their current,contract supporting these requirements, held by Celestar Corporation, ended,in January of this year.
Contracting Command
W911QY18R0008  $249,000,000.00  $274,343,445.22 May-18 Aug-18 Last,awarded in 2012, this large Omnibus (formally known as JPEO-CBP-OPETS),currently carries 42 GovCon incumbents - including some heavy hitters like,Patricio Enterprises, TASC (Engility), Huntington Ingalls (Camber), and,Millennium Corporation just to name a few. JPE-CBD is implementing a new,acquisition strategy on this go around where they are splitting this IDIQ,into three separate MA IDIQ's (Acquisition, Logistics/Medical, and Business,Analytics). What is even more interesting is the Government is projecting,only three awardees per MA IDIQ - making this a large consolidation (and,teaming) effort. Patricio Enterprises leads the current IDIQ pack by a large,margin bringing in over $106.52M over the PoP - followed by Huntington,Ingalls at $68M and Tauri Group at $21M.,According to the November 2017 briefing slides, JPE-CBD plans for ~140,FTEs in total for the JE-OPETS-BEI MA IDIQ with about 20 different labor,categories. The slides also reference a timeline that seems to be slipping -,calling for a Contractor On-Ramp for each MA IDIQ to being early January 2019,and all FTE's/TOs to be in place by February 2019. PoP ends in June so we,anticipate this being a late summer blockbuster. Last go around got 70 proposals,submitted - any one want to wager we will see that double? Maybe triple? Keep,your eye on this one!
Advanced Training and Support for Department of Navy (DON)
Acquisition Workforce Excellence
ID11180043  -   -  - May-18 GSA is,working to determine the availability of potential SB GovCons for a tentative,requirement of Advanced Training and Support for Department of Navy,Acquisition Workforce Excellence, under the GSA 00CORP - PSS Schedule,relevant to SIN 874-1, 874-4, and 100-03.
Army Enterprise Data Center (AEDC) Army
Contracting Command
PANAPG18P0000132023  -   -  Jun-18 TBD:
Shaping Opportunity
Procrastination,is a nasty habit that we can all relate to. Back in December 2016, the,Secretary of the Army, frustrated by the Service’s poorly-executed effort to,meet its data center closure targets, issued Directive 2016-38 mandating the,Army close 60% of its roughly 1,200 data centers by the end of FY18 and 75%,by FY25. The 227 closures scheduled for the end of FY18, in addition to the,60 closures scheduled for the end of FY17 (not sure if those all happened),,means that the Army estimates it is running enterprise systems and,applications in at least 287 of its data centers. More importantly, the Army,has slowly been moving towards establishing four CONUS AEDCs to consolidate,and manage Army applications in a centralized manner - the four,being Ft. Bragg, Ft. Carson, Ft. Knox, and,Redstone Arsenal. Of these four locations, only the AEDC at Redstone begun to,take shape in Q2 of FY17, including the private commercial cloud being stood,up there by IBM in late 2016 as part of the pilot Army Private Cloud,Enterprise (ACPE) contract (Contract No.: W91QUZ12D0002). There have been,other movements as well such as using ALTESS as a "staging area",(which is also set to close), the award of the Army Cloud Computing,Enterprise Transformation (ACCENT) BOA (Sol. No.: W52P1J16R0194) in early,2017, September 30th is only a few months away - and the contract support,still isn't in place. Looks like this still has a long way to go.
USAF RFIRIKD1802  -   -  Jun-18 Jul-18 The,Air Force Research Laboratory, Information Directorate, Rome NY (AFRL/RI),,has a requirement for performing specialized software research, software,development, integration, deployment, familiarization, testing, installation,,maintenance, and lifecycle support. This effort will enable research,,enhancement, and maintenance of Multi-Level Access (MLA) data, information,,processes, and systems. MLA solutions are a type of Cross Domain (CD) system,that provides authorized users the ability to securely access data from,multiple security domains from a single client device, while protecting the,security domains from unauthorized access or malicious attack.
Automated Dynamic Malware Analysis Tools DOS 19AQMM18N0045  -   $10,682,139.99 Jun-18 May-18 The,current incumbent contract, held by International Systems Marketing, was,awarded back in 2013 with the PoP ending December 2017. We can't seem to,locate a bridge contract or notice - so we aren't sure what DOS has been,doing as a stop-gap measure, but hopefully this procurement comes sooner,rather than later.
Information Technology Services, Office, Chief Army Reserve
Contracting Command
W9124718T0005  $4,564,000.00  $4,564,249.21 Jun-18 May-18 The,United States Army Reserve (USAR) plays a critical role in defending our,nation and it is vital that the Office of the Chief Army Reserve (OCAR) G-6,receives IT services that provide technical excellence to support enterprise,level IT requirements for the Chief, Army Reserve (CAR) and a support staff,of ~700 users. A continuing need is anticipated for the services, which are,currently being fulfilled through contract W91QUZ-11-D-0011-1N01 by,NETCENTRICS. After doing some digging, it looks like the PoP for this TO was,up in February of this year, with no bridge contract. Since this is an IDIQ,,it is hard to tell if the services are continuing under another TO.

W911QY18R0001  $249,000,000.00  $274,343,445.22 Jun-18 Jul-18 See analysis for JE-OPETS-BEI.,According to the November 2017 briefing slides, JPE-CBD plans for ~140 FTEs,in total for the JE-OPETS-LM MA IDIQ with about 14 different labor,categories.
Contracting Command
W911QY18R0002  $ 249,000,000.00  $274,343,445.22 Jun-18 Jun-18 See analysis for JE-OPETS-BEI. This,MA IDIQ is not like the others because it will be competed as a SBSA.,According to the November 2017 briefing slides, JPE-CBD plans for ~135 FTEs,in total for the JE-OPETS-A MA IDIQ with about 9 different labor categories.,We are thinking that this one will probably be competed before the two full,and open spin offs.
DoD Ammunition Inventory Enterprise WHS HQ003418RXXXX  -   -  Jun-18 TBD:
Shaping Opportunity
Washington,Headquarters Services (WHS) is issuing notice seeking GovCons capable of,providing a Information Decision Support Tool for the DoD Ammunition,Inventory Enterprise. The DoD Reform Lead for Logistics and Supply Chain is,exploring the feasibility and benefits of an information decision support,tool to support the DoD ammunition inventory enterprise. It is envisioned,that the tool will be comprised of a munitions common operational picture,(COP) that will have specific requirements, outputs, and data elements (e.g.,a dashboard), and an artificial intelligence (AI)/machine learning (ML),capability that takes information from the COP when applied to use cases or,scenarios and provides a series of options to the DoD for decision making,purposes. The initiative would provide the first ever tool with complete,enterprise stockpile visibility, real time data-driven health and readiness,metrics, the ability to measure the impact of decisions and subsequent,cascading order of effects on readiness to meet operational plans and the,ability to evaluate alternatives, substitutions, trade-offs and associated,costs, replenishment time lines and ability to store.
FDsys/GovInfo System Administrator and Support GPO FDsysgovinfoSystemAdministrator  -   -  - Jun-18 Part 1 of 3: GPO requires the,services of GovCons to provide System Administration and IT solutions for,their Federal Digital System (FDsys)/govinfo Program. GPO launched govinfo in,February 2016 as a beta website to eventually replace its predecessor, GPO’s,Federal Digital System (FDsys). In December 2018, govinfo will replace its,predecessor site, the Federal Digital System (FDsys). It looks like Harris,Corporation has been the most involved with this program (GPO information on,FPDS is limited). The Pre-Solicitation notice says to "look out for the,solicitation!" - so we will be keeping an eye out for this.
FDsys/GovInfo Search and Web Application Development and Support GPO FDsysgovinfoSearchandWebApplication  -   -  - Jun-18 Part 2 of 3: Same thing - but now,for search and web application development and support!

Shaping Opportunity
Looks,like VHA has the same problem as GSA PBS does. VHA lacks accurate and,complete architectural documentation across the real property portfolio to,manage and track information about its facilities. VHA is seeking responses,from GovCons with existing business knowledge and experience to determine the,best level of effort, business processes, costs, and technologies to provide,accurate, contemporary, up-to-date spatial layout and spatial data (e.g.,,room details such as Department Ownership, Net Square Footage and,Departmental Gross Square Footage, functional use) for existing facilities,under its stewardship. In addition to solution recommendations and GovCon,capabilities - VHA is also looking for timelines, pricing, etc. - so this is,a real shaping opportunity. Responses to the RFI is due April 24th by 5:00 PM,EST.
Board of Veteran Appeals (BVA) Surge Support Claims File Review
Request for Information
VA 36C10X18Q9097  -   $3,920,894.05 Jul-18 Jun-18 VA,claims file revise requirements were part of the "alternative",assigned tasks of the VA Community Care Network (CCN) IDIQ, but since that is,on hold at the moment - the VA is looking to GovCon for a stop-gap solution.,The Board of Veterans’ Appeals (Board) anticipates an increase in workload,and is seeking to obtain paralegal support for the Board related to the,administration of Veterans benefits appeals processing.,We can't seem to find one distinct program,for these types of requirements, but we did some digging on FPDS and found,the following GovCons that have recently played in this area: Maximus,(Contract No. VA74114C0009), Trauner Consulting Services (Contract No.:,VA24516F0015), Primeaux Health Strategies (Contract No.: VA644C20045),,Enterprise Technology Solutions (Contract No.: $36,795.96), BRSI L.P.,(Contract No.: VA496C11504), Triwest Healthcare Alliance Corp.

National Integrated Ballistics Information Network (NIBIN)  DOJ
RFINIBIN2018  $73,437,000.00  $82,202,841.97 Jul-18 Aug-18 The,Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is seeking to,revise, modernize and improve the National Integrated Ballistics Information,Network (NIBIN). NIBIN today links over 175 local and state law enforcement,agencies, allowing these agencies to solve crimes by comparing ballistics,data within their regions or nationally in order to generate matches and link,criminal investigative cases by the firearms used. ATF is interested in a,web-based system or networked system with high redundancy and fault tolerance,that they can use to plug and play imaging equipment that is interoperable,with any Government-furnished workstations and servers.

Media Monitoring Services DHS
RNBO1800041  -   $11,496,566.72 Jun-18 TBD:
Shaping Opportunity
Looks,like DHS NPPD is looking to re-start their Media Monitoring program. General,Dynamics was the last to provide these services to DHS NPPD back in 2015,where it looks like the services were competed Full and Open under a GSA,Schedule. Rather than re-starting a new program - could DHS use this,opportunity to work with the IC (hello - NMEC?) and maybe collab a little? Or,maybe just talk to their ICE and CBP counterparts to get in on their media,monitoring program which has gained some media attention over the past weeks.,Time will tell!
GSA Team Collaboration Tools and Services GSA RFITC04042018  -   -  Jul-18 TBD:
Shaping Opportunity
Reported,back in 2016 - GSA 18F's slack security exposed GSA data and now they are,just getting around to possibly,replacing it.
1605DC18R00021  -   $7,918,084.24 Jul-18 TBD:
Shaping Opportunity
It,looks like VA is looking to re-start it's NVTAC Homeless Veterans',Registration Program (HVRP). According to our search on FPDS, Atlas Research,was the last to provide these services to VA ending in 2015. Atlas provided,these services across 25-cities. The new scope of the RFI is more focused on,FTE counts than scope so we aren't sure how large or small this re-upped,program could be, but it is a great thing to have GovCon support.
VA Mobile Applications Platform VA 36C10B18Q2846  -   $122,107,126.75 Jul-18 TBD:
Shaping Opportunity
The,VA is looking to replace their VA Mobile Infrastructure Services (VA MIS),platform, currently hosted by Booz Allen Hamilton, Terremark, and Dell,Federal, with the VA Mobile Applications Platform (MAP) solution. Currently,there are between 20-30 mobile applications and supporting services hosted in,the VA Mobile Framework (VAMF) production environment. To make things even,more complicated, the VA MIS platform currently consists of three hosting,environments (one external, two internal) – and there are additional,operational environments currently being commissioned in the VA Enterprise,Cloud (VAEC) located in Amazon AWS GovCloud and Microsoft Azure Government,Cloud. These environments will host all new application deployments and will,eventually be utilized to host all services currently located in ECE, MAE,,and VAMF as those systems are phased out during FY18. We wish all of GovCon,good luck with this hot mess. For more details and quotes from VA leadership,regarding the VA’s lofty cloud initiatives, make sure you read Jason Miller’s,(@jmillerWFED) tweets from the #FCWCloud Event.

Every sector of the economy from,agriculture to finance to e-commerce is largely comprised of microbusinesses.,Relatedly, these organizations may be significant users of direct mail,advertising, parcel shipping and delivery, and other postal services. The,USPS OIG is interested in determining the market and revenue potential of,microbusinesses for the USPS.
Federal Advisory Committee Support FAA 29859  -   -  - TBD:
Shaping Opportunity
FAA,is looking to industry regarding the logistical maintenance of three Federal,Advisory Committees (FACs): Drone Advisory Committee (DAC), NextGen Advisory,Committee (NAC), and Program Management Committee (PMC).

W911QX18Q0005  -   -  - TBD:
Shaping Opportunity
Teaching,really smart Engineers to write proposals. Oh, a tale as old as time. The,Vehicle Technology Directorate (VTD) of the U.S. Army Research Laboratory,(ARL) has a requirement for a Grant/Proposal Writing Training class. VTD is,the principal U.S. Army organization responsible for the pursuit of,mobility-related science and technologies leading to advanced capabilities,and improved reliability for Army air and ground vehicles.

Shaping Opportunity
USMS,is looking to consolidate fleet management, maintenance, and fuel management,activities,on the operational and,strategic level for a cost effective innovative vehicle maintenance contract,,to include major repairs and 24/7 emergency repair/towing support. Even more,interesting, USMS is looking to GovCon to provide and maintain a robust web,based Fleet Maintenance system that will enable the view of purchase orders,,alerts, maintenance expenses, reports, trends and all other associated data,derived from the vehicle maintenance services rendered. The estimated,ordering is ~4,800 vehicles annually.
Carbon-Phenolic for NASA Re-Entry Heatshields NASA 80ARC018RFICP  -   -  - TBD:
Shaping Opportunity
If,there was an award for "Most Artistic Federal Government Program/Project,Synopsis Writer" - it would be NASA. We *swoon* at each one of their,procurement postings - no matter how much we don't understand it. Here is,just an snippet: "To date,NASA has utilized carbon phenolic (CP) heatshields for its most demanding,reentry missions, Pioneer Venus (PV) and Galileo (mission to Jupiter). These,heat shields consisted of a Tape Wrapped Carbon Phenolic (TWCP) frustum and a,Chop Molded Carbon Phenolic (CMCP) spherical nose. TWCP has uses beyond NASA,thermal protection system (TPS) requirements, such as in rocket nozzles;,however, CMCP is essentially a NASA-unique CP material that has very few,other applications. It has been more than 30 years since NASA has flown a,mission requiring CMCP TPS materials and therefore industry's capability to,support CMCP fabrication now and in the future is unclear."
IT & Cyber Security Courses USMC M3300018SSG6016  -   -  - TBD:

Intelligence Community Centers of Academic Excellence (IC CAE)
National Security Analysis and Intelligence Summer Seminar
DIA HHM40218R0051 - - 23-Apr-18 This is one of those opportunities we would love to bid on! The Summer Seminar is,a two-week program, held twice a year (June and August) and is designed to,provide students from CAE-designated universities with in-depth exposure to,the intelligence field with a focus on intelligence analysis through,classroom instruction, interactive exercises, simulations, briefs, panel,discussions and agency tours. This event has been successfully delivered by,the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) since the Office of the Director of,National Intelligence (ODNI) designated the DIA as the Service of Common,Concern (SOCC) for the IC CAE Program and the NSAISS on behalf of the,Intelligence Community. DIA is looking to GovCon to assist in the,coordination and execution a simulation during one day of each seminar.
Emerging Market Bank Analysis Training OPIC OPIC18R0015 - - 25-Apr-18 OPIC’s Structured Finance and Insurance Department (“SFI”) is responsible for the,underwriting, credit approval, and loan negotiation of debt financing and the,underwriting and approval of political risk insurance for American businesses,investing overseas in less developed countries where OPIC is open. In,addition, the political risk insurance team also monitors project performance,to ensure that projects comply with the terms and conditions of the OPIC,contract.
