INDUSTRY EXPOSÉ (MAY 3, 2018)

Grab that allergy medicine and take a break with our latest Industry Expose’! 

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. 

Click here to download our full exposé including way more contracts, our analysis (the best part!), solicitation numbers, contract values, and important dates. 



CANCELLED
CONTRACT NAME FEDERAL ENTITY SOL NO. INDUSTRY EST. VALUE ACTUAL VALUE DATE CANCELLED PULSE THOUGHTS
FY18 Bridge Preservation DOI NPS 140P2018C0023 $5,000.00 - 16-Apr-18 Cancelled because it was "set aside for a sole-source 8(a) WOSB". Cheers to that BD'er!
Control Room Electrical & Communications GSA PBS 47PF0018R0071 - - 18-Apr-18 We had to read this a few times to understand what they were trying to say, "this solicitation is being cancelled, effective 4/18/2018. The solicitation will be issued no later than 4/28/2018. The purpose of this cancellation is to allow all interested parties, classified as a small business to again compete as a result of a change in the scope of work after the original offer due date".
Yellow Ribbon NGB W912KC18Q9014 - - 18-Apr-18 This event was cancelled "due to no availability from hotels within 50 mile radius". We conducted a quick Google Maps search and found 20 hotels within the "troubled" 50 mile radius. So..this is awkward.
Office of Emergency Management II Conference Center GSA PBS GS11P17MKC0010 - - 18-Apr-18 Well - this sucks. The solicitation was released back in April 2017, had 8 modifications, and was due June 7, 2017. Almost a year later, GSA PBS announced that this was cancelled because "no award was made for this project". Ouch.
PRESERVATION OF THE FORCE HUMAN PERFORMANCE OPTIMIZATION SERVICES (HPO) USAF FA568218R0008 - - 19-Apr-18 When you add the solicitation name into the cancellation reason - it doesn't sound great. "It has been determined to be in the best interest of the government to cancel this [preservation of the force human performance optimization] solicitation".
MSCT System components and product support USAF FA873018F0175 - - 19-Apr-18 "FA873018F0175 will no longer be solicited on NETCENTS-II".
Center Hill Custodial Service USACE W912P518T0021 - - 19-Apr-18 This procurement is now being conducted as an 8(a) sole source and will no longer be open for competition in accordance with FAR 19.805-1. Again - cheers to that BD'er!
Tree Climbing to Pick Cones with Ripe Seeds USDA FS 1204U318Q0007 - - 20-Apr-18 Cancelled due to funding issues. It is probably frowned upon but we can probably offer up some friends that would do this for free. If the weather is nice, we might even do it.

PRE-SOLICITATION
CONTRACT NAME FEDERAL ENTITY SOL NO. INDUSTRY EST. VALUE ACTUAL CONTRACT VALUE INDUSTRY EST. RELEASE DATE PULSE EST. RELEASE DATE PULSE THOUGHTS
Tobacco Retail Inspections HHS FDA 18FDASOL1194474 - - - May-18 FDA intends to award contracts to various GovCon's to conduct inspections in Washington, D.C, Nevada, South Carolina and Idaho. These GovCon's will assist in inspecting retail establishments that sell cigarettes and/or smokeless tobacco products and in surveillance of other entities that fall under the scope of the Tobacco Control Act.
Beneficiary and Family Centered Care (BFCC) Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) DIQ HHS CMS 75FCMC18R0034 $1,500,000,000.00 $351,267,515.00 May-18 Nov-18 CMS wants to ensure that care provided by the Medicare Program is medically necessary, reasonable, meets professionally recognized standards of care, is provided in the appropriate setting, and complies with certain standards under the EMTALA. The purpose of the Beneficiary and Family Centered Care (BFCC) Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) contract is to improve healthcare services for Medicare beneficiaries through BFCC-QIO performance of numerous statutory review function. Currently this program is being supported by two incumbents - Ohio Keprio and Livanta. Under this IDIQ, Keprio has brought in over $202M and Livanta $148M. PoP for this IDIQ is up in May 2019 so we expect this to be an FY19 release.
Network of Quality Improvement and Innovation Contractors (NQIIC) IDIQ HHS CMS 75FCMC18R0016 $25,000,000,000.00 $1,116,056,353.00 May-18 Nov-18 CMS is looking to create a consolidated, umbrella IDIQ contract to support quality improvement efforts across settings and programs to maximum impact to healthcare and value to taxpayers. This IDIQ contract will allow for the full spectrum of quality improvement work that is in operation under the current various programs including the QIN-QIO work, the ESRD Network work, the hospital focused large scale improvement work, clinician-focused technical assistance work, and other quality improvement work. The Pulse briefly reviewed the three large programs that we assume this umbrella IDIQ will be consolidating and found a few overlapping incumbents that are sure to be targeting this effort. Top performers include Health Services Advisory Group, HealthInsight, Island Peer Review Organization, Mid-South Foundation for Medic, and West Virginia Medical Institute Inc. PoP's for a majority of these contracts are up FY19 and FY20 - so we assume this will be a late FY18, early FY19 release.
USA CONTACT MULTICHANNEL CONTACT CENTER SERVICES GSA OCSIT ITC7005302017 $2,500,000,000.00 $1,011,720,122.93 May-18 Oct-18 The Pulse provided a quick analysis summary in our �Top FY18 Opportunity List Comparisons� blog in October where we anticipated the release to push pretty far right than the January industry prediction. GSA USCMCC ranked at #20 on GovWin�s Top FY18 Opportunity List and BGOV�s #16. GSA recently came out and stated that they are still considering establishing a new SIN for the CCS Program under Schedule 70 (IT-70). The Contracting Office previously announced that the incumbent contracts were extended through August 2018, but after doing a quick search on FPDS we only see GSA reported extensions for DXC Technology (now HP) and General Dynamics. However, incumbents DXC, Teletech, Convergys, General Dynamics, Lockheed Martin (now Leidos), CSC (now CSRA), and Active Network all hold active TO's with each PoP ending after FY18. The acquisition process must be exhausting since this GSA GWAC supports different FedGov Agencies such as DHS, ED, HHS, PBGC, OPM, DOE, HUD, HHS, Treasury, and CFBP - so we aren't surprised at how long this is taking to get out. We wouldn't be surprised if this ended up being an FY19 release.
Online Scheduling Tool SW VA 36C10B18Q2851 $1,778,000.00 $509,381,224.09 May-18 May-18 It looks like this will be competed under the T4NG IDIQ. The VA is looking to GovCon to continue to provide help desk and maintenance support to their VA Personnel Identity Verification (PIV) scheduling solution currently supported by incumbent By Light Professional IT Services Inc. The current solution is implemented at VA�s 210 fixed PIV credentialing sites and 80 mobile credentialing Facilities.
Enterprise Product Support Engineering III (EPES III) GSA FAS / USAF ID05170030 $99,000,000.00 $104,953,439.06 May-18 May-18 GSA is seeking GovCon's on behalf of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) Product Support Engineering Division (EZP) to provide continued product support engineering services. This re-competed single award IDIQ will continue to support projects that demonstrate enterprise technologies, alternative material solutions, and standardize process solutions to enable or accelerate sustainment technology transition across multiple weapon systems across the life cycle.
Military OneSource DOI IBC 140D0418R0013 $419,713,000.00 $257,045,585.43 May-18 Jul-18 On behalf of the Military Departments and the Guard and Reserve Components, the Department of Defense (DoD) requires a Contractor to provide services in support of the Military OneSource program, a commercial employee assistance program (EAP) for military members and their families. This program provides members of the Armed Forces and their families, about 5.4 million persons �Participants� at locations worldwide, with a broad array of information and referrals to both military and civilian resources as well as counseling services. Over the course of this contract, the DoD may also designate other categories of personnel to be Participants. There are emerging needs for this requirement; some already established - and being supported by incumbent Value Options - and others arising now and the future. It can be challenging to predict specific emerging needs; therefore, the flexibility and capacity of the GovCon to address these needs is most imperative. The current incumbent PoP is up in April 2019 so we see this as a late release, if not early 2019.
SUPPORTING THE ELECTRONIC HEALTH INFORMATION SYSTEM (e-HIS) IN ETHIOPIA TO IMPROVE HEALTH OUTCOMES USAID AID663SS1800001 - - May-18 Jul-18 You know that old saying -"those that can't do, teach. And those who can't teach, teach gym". Well since we can't figure out our own electronic health system, USAID is going to help Ethiopia.
Defense Enterprise Office Solutions (DEOS) DISA HC104718R4007 $8,200,000,000.00 - Jun-18 TBD: Shaping Opportunity Meet DISA DEOS, previously known as DISA DEOS CRM. Industry is stating that this is a response to the potential JEDI Cloud Contract sparking a DoD cloud war. But, this has actually been on DISA's mind since at least 2015 with 3 separate RFI's, a few dRFP's and some name changes. Obviously, DISA has been pretty cautious about this requirement and is looking for a solution - for the right price. Eventually, the DEOS Program will unify and modernize legacy DISA IT enterprise services such as email, portal collaboration and other disparate DoD-wide legacy capabilities. Responses to the dRFP are due May 7.
Provider Enrollment and Oversight IDIQ HHS CMS 75FCMC18R0014 $100,000,000.00 $164,765,566.27 Jun-18 Aug-18 Could this be the next big IDIQ? CMS currently relies on a network of GovCon's to carryout program integrity and provider enrollment and screening tasks in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. The strategies for these contracts are based on the specific legislative authorities that enacted the individual programs. The enrollment and screening process is constantly evolving (devolving pending your perspective) through new (or stalled out) regulations and authorities to address Medicare and Medicaid program vulnerabilities and prevent fraud, waste and abuse. In order to implement and operationalize these changes quickly and efficiently, CMS is developing their own IDIQ contracting vehicle to meet demands and ever-changing enrollment and screening landscape. One of the primary programs that will be integrated is currently held by ManTech MSM Security (owned by Innoviss Inc.) with the PoP ending in December of this year. The Pulse did a quick FPDS search and found at least 10 other programs with related scopes out of CMS all with PoP ending as early as this month and as late as 2021. A majority of these referenced individual programs were competed on a GSA Schedule so we are wondering if CMS will considering working with GSA to create a GSA GWAC (hello, category management...). Time will only tell!
DHA REFERENCE AND METADATA MANAGEMENT DHA HT0050IPNRFI20183 - - Jun-18 Jul-18 DHA seeking metadata management GovCon's to help with MHS Genesis as it considers new technology to help it manage the increase of clinical data from its ongoing electronic health record (EHR) modernization. The VA's EHR upgrade may still be on pause, but the DoD's Cerner migration is well underway. And DHA is now seeking information about ways it might best manage and migrate data for its MHS Genesis rollout.
ARCHITECT-ENGINEER SERVICES IN SUPPORT OF CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION FAA / CBP 29909 - - Jul-18 TBD: Shaping Opportunity This market survey is in support of the FAA's interagency agreement with DHS CBP. Work type may include, but is not limited to: rehabilitations, reinforcements, alterations, change in use, additions and new construction of towers, shelters, power systems, electrical systems, mechanical systems and other Customer Assets at the identified Customer Facility.
Cyber and Encryption Security National Security Space Systems and Low Earth Orbit Constellations DARPA DARPASN1850 - - Jul-18 TBD: Shaping Opportunity Here we go again with the #SpaceForce. DARPA and DoD are interested in moving toward satisfying DoD space missions with large constellations of inexpensive satellites in low earth orbit (LEO) however, DARPA wants to do one better and wants to create a "unique military utility". DARPA TTO is looking to GovCon for ideas, methodologies, and approaches to support potential new DARPA programs that will seek high-risk/high-payoff breakthroughs in all modalities of cybersecurity technologies with the identification and development of revolutionary new mission systems that will exploit them. Following the review of responses to this RFI, DARPA plans to hold a Space Cybersecurity Workshop in San Diego, CA (May 22 -24), with a subset of submitters, for the expressed purpose of further identifying technology challenges and development strategies that may lead to new and innovative space cybersecurity systems. This should be interesting.
DCPAS WEBBASED EMPLOYEE OCCUPATIONAL SKILLS ASSESSMENT REPORTS DHRA DCPASSourcesSought - - Jul-18 TBD: Shaping Opportunity The Defense Civilian Personnel Advisory Service (DCPAS)/Talent Development (TD) requires web-based employee occupational skills assessments/reports to be made available to the Department of Defense (DoD) workforce through the newly created Center for Talent Development web portal. This occupation-based assessment will be available to the DoD civilian workforce, but will be strongly targeted to the GS 12 and lower grades that may be looking to advance professionally in their career field or better align themselves in a new career field.
Item Purchase Descriptions (IPDs) Review GSA FAS QSDMJ6183030A - - - Jul-18 Need something to do on your Friday or Saturday nights? GSA would like to offer you the opportunity to review 118 National Stock Numbers (NSNs) anticipated to be solicited in July. We are undecided about what this is supporting - it can either be the big DLA consolidation effort, for GSA's new e-commerce site initiative, or to support further Best-In-Class consolidation efforts for GSA Schedules. What is your guess?
Integrated Electronic Security System Support Services LOC 030ADV18D0255 - - - Aug-18 In celebration of LOC's 218th Birthday, LOC is looking to upgrade their electronics! LOC is seeking to identify GovCon's that may possess the capabilities to support the Office of Security and Emergency Preparedness (OSEP) by providing full spectrum maintenance and repair services of their Integrated Electronic Security System (IESS) support services.
Geospatial Mapping of Ambient Sounds NGA HM047618R0035RFISoundscape - - Aug-18 TBD: Shaping Opportunity NGA Research Directorate�s Environment and Culture pod is seeking information on how an interested GovCon can leverage new and emerging technologies to characterize spatial-temporal patterns in sounds and develop corresponding foundational geospatial datasets. The same way technology can classify the location and characteristics of gunshots or different species of birds in a small area, NGA wants to be able to use technology to record, classify and map ambient sounds and acoustic features. The automated effort would result in accurate baseline soundscapes for locations worldwide. With an acoustic map, users could match sound data from unknown locations to potential places of origin. IT could also be used in navigation, augmented reality and accessibility applications. Other agencies have used sound mapping to describe the soundscape in particular areas: DOT's Noise Map pulls data from the FAA and the FHWA into a GIS program to show noise levels from traffic and aviation across the country; and NOAA's SoundMap depicts temporal, spatial and spectral characteristics of underwater noise created by human activity.
Factory of the Future USPS OIG 3A18A0062 - - Aug-18 TBD: Shaping Opportunity USPS seeks information for a COTS based solution to fully integrate automated industrial processing facilities (i.e., Smart Facility / Factory 4.0 / Factory of the Future, Production Control System) for operational asset and resource management, including, but not limited to, automated management of inventory flows, mail transport equipment movement, routing and scheduling. The USPS mail operation within each facility has specific time constraints for processing mail, by product type, in order to meet service commitments. The COTS solution shall include modeling, planning, and simulation features that the USPS can leverage to evaluate potential process optimization scenarios for implementation.
Employment Certification Form Database Solution ED EDFSA18ECFRFI - - Aug-18 TBD: Shaping Opportunity The College Cost Reduction and Access Act (CCRAA) of 2007 created the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program for Direct Loan borrowers who make 120 separate, on-time qualifying payments. These payments must be made after October 1, 2007 and the borrower must be employed in certain public service jobs, as defined in the regulations, during the time the payments are made and at the time forgiveness is requested and granted. Once the Government determines whether all of the requirements for eligibility have been fulfilled, the balance of principal and interest due on the borrower�s eligible Direct Loans is forgiven. Federal Student Aid (FSA) has a need for GovCon support for the implementation, operation and maintenance of an Employment Certification Form (ECF) database to track borrowers and employers in the PSLF program.
ePerformance 5.0 VA 36C77618Q9145 $2,007,000.00 $2,007,432.52 Aug-18 TBD: Shaping Opportunity Since 2010, the VA has managed the manual scanning of over 3.5 million performance appraisal forms into the Electronic Official Personnel Folder (eOPF) application. This figure represents an estimated cost of $30.25 Million, which will be avoided upon department-wide implementation of an EEPM solution. The Human Capital Systems and Services (HCSS) office is requesting a cloud hosted EEPM solution to manage the VA performance appraisal process in accordance with VA Handbook 5013 for approximately 45,000 employees. The VA has approximately 367,000 employees and the workforce is comprised of Title 5, Title 38 and Hybrid Title 38 employees. The requested web-based cloud solution shall automate the five performance forms used by VA employees, complete required workflows and automatically upload the completed performance appraisal package to the eOPF. Northrop Grumman is the current incumbent performing ePerformance 4.0 integration. RFI responses are due tomorrow by 12PM.
Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) Financial Management System (FMS) Monitoring and Improvement Initiative (MII) USACE W912DY18R0041 - $3,921,042.40 Aug-18 May-18 Lintech Global is currently supporting DSCA's requirement for Financial Management System (FMS) monitoring and improvement - but the end of their PoP is ending in June! The Contracting Office is cutting it close with RFI responses due just the other day.
INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SERVICE MANAGEMENT END USER AND SERVICE DESK SUPPORT DOS 19AQMM18N0043 $225,000,000.00 $178,754,113.43 Oct-18 Jul-18 Ah! Our guess seemed to be accurate in our latest Industry Expose' (April 19th). A new sources sought is back out on the street! Due May 25th.
COTS Project Management Program USAF BIPTCap5 - - Oct-18 TBD: Shaping Opportunity The USAF Academy (USAFA) is seeking interested sources and information concerning a Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) portfolio/project management system with the following capabilities: define, align, and integrate plans, processes, resource decisions, workforce capability, action, and results across the institution. The proposed solution must enable clear distinction of the roles and responsibilities between USAFA and HQ following four Institutional Alignment capabilities: strategic planning, ME/HQ implementation planning, operational and implementation risk, and interface directly with both USAF and USAFA Oracle PeopleSoft Campus Solution, Infosilem EnCampus, CVENT, and the USAFA Student Information System (SIS) - all while meeting the new DoD IT Security Policy.
Marine and Coastal Biosecurity ODNI IARPA IARPARFI1803 - - - TBD: Shaping Opportunity IARPA is looking to GovCon for detection approaches related to marine and coastal biosecurity. Increasing global commerce, changing climate conditions, and emerging biological technologies create vulnerabilities that the U.S. needs to be prepared to defend against. New capabilities are necessary to ensure that the U.S. can effectively protect critical economic and national resources. One key aspect of biosecurity is the purposeful or unintentional introduction of aquatic organisms to non-native areas aka Aquatic invasive species (AIS). AIS can be transported by a variety of mechanisms, including ship hulls and ballast water, which provide pathways for microbes, eggs, and small invertebrates to travel and disperse. Methods of monitoring for AIS in coastal waterways and ballast water as well as on ship hulls exist, but current approaches are limited and time consuming so they want to fix that.
Survivor Network DOS 19AQMM18N0050 - - - TBD: Shaping Opportunity DOS is looking for an experienced and qualified GovCon to create a network of consultants. These consultants will include survivors of human trafficking and subject matter experts. The GovCon will also develop a Survivor Leaders Fellowship Program to offer professional development opportunities to eligible survivor consultants. What a great opportunity to make a difference.
AF Category Management USAF FA701418RCATMNGT - - - TBD: Shaping Opportunity USAF is looking to GovCon for possible support services for the USAF Category Management program. The objective of the effort will be to assist with the execution, advancement, and adoption of the USAF Category Management program in the Program Support Office as well as for Category Managers and Category Leads. Richard Lombardi, USAF Deputy Undersecretary for Management and Deputy Chief Management Officer, has said a Category Management program will help the service save $2B and boost lethality within the force.
Suicide Prevention National Media Campaign VA 36E77618Q9139 - - - TBD: Shaping Opportunity VA has charged the Office of Mental Health and Suicide Prevention (OMHSP) with oversight authority for the strategic development, implementation, centralization, standardization, communication and evaluation of VA suicide and risk reduction programs, policies and surveillance activities to reduce the impact of suicide on Veterans and their families. VA is looking to GovCon to provide research, audience testing and promotional activity, as well as ad space (media) to increase awareness among Veterans and family members as part of a public health approach to ending suicide among Veterans. This effort requires the contractor to conduct market research, procure an advertising/communication agency to develop ad campaigns, conduct research on stakeholders and target market, procure media to run the advertising for VA on television, radio, out of home venues and more, and finally to conduct research after advertising.

DARPA EPIGENETIC CHARACTERIZATION AND OBSERVATION ECHO BAA PROGRAM (ECHO) DARPA HR001118S0023 - - 03-May-18 The Epigenetic CHaracterization and Observation (ECHO) program will utilize an individual's epigenome to reveal their history of exposure to weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and WMD precursors. The program will build a field-deployable platform capable of using the epigenome to diagnose biothreat exposures and infections and support military forensics operations to counter-WMD proliferation.
END USER CENTRIC IT SUPPORT (ECIS) HHS CMS RFQ1281833 $100,000,000.00 $488,363,046.04 11-May-18 HHS CMS released their follow-on contract for End-User Centric IT Support (ECIS). Leidos (previously held by Lockheed) has served as the incumbent since 2012. Leidos has supported CMS end-users infrastructure to include ~7,000 contractor owned and operated single model laptops/desktops comprised of Windows and Macs, associated peripherals, ~1,800 government furnished mobile devices (iPhones) and ~1,700 Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD) supported by a MDM solution. The solicitation was released via GSA Alliant Full and Open on April 20th and is due May 21st.
TRANSPORTATION OF SEIZED GOODS US BORDER PATROL DHS CBP 70B03C18R00000051 $10,000,000.00 $63,750.00 11-May-18 DHS CBP Border Patrol (USBP) Tucson, Laredo, El Paso, Rio Grande, Del Rio, and Big Bend Sectors seize controlled substances to include, narcotics, pharmaceuticals and enormous amounts of marijuana each year, which create a significant manpower drain in these offices. USBP is looking to GovCon to provide fully trained, armed, and outfitted persons to load and unload large amounts of pre-packed bulk marijuana (bales weigh an average of 20 to 60 pounds each), narcotics, and other incidental controlled substances at BP Stations and law enforcement departments. Central Texas Express Metalwork provided similar services to DHS CBP back in 2016 for armed transportation of seized vehicles, but it looks like this might be a new outsourced requirement. Think before you take on this RFI GovCon - because you might get more than what you bargained for...like a tiger cub sleeping in a seized duffel bag. Marijuana, pills, and tiger cubs - oh my!
INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SUPPORT SERVICES FOR THE MIKE MONRONEY AERONAUTICAL CENTER (ITSS) Re-Compete DOT FAA 6973GH18R00092 $160,858,000.00 $170,528,215.68 14-May-18 SAIC has managed to turn this 5 year PoP contract into a 7 year contract - with some indications that their reign might not be over yet. NASA has not released a dRFP for this re-compete since 2016 and a final just dropped from the Heavens last week. So what has put some GovCon's in hell? The definition of an "established partnered team" - which requires two or more businesses to have performed together on a contract for a minimum of one year. This basically torpedoes any small or medium-sized GovCon's chances since that definition makes the very hefty demonstrated experience requirements difficult if not impossible to meet. In the previous iterations of this program, the incumbent is normally unseated. But it looks like the times might be changing.
TEAMS DEVELOPMENT IMPLEMENTATION SUSTAINMENT AND ASSESSMENT OF HUMAN RESOURCES PROCESSES PROCEDURES PLANS AND POLICIES MDA HQ014718R0006 $35,550,000.00 $8,937,243.60 16-May-18 This follow-on contract will support the development, implementation, sustainment and assessment of human resources processes, procedures, plans and policies to support the MDA workforce. This includes supporting the execution of Human Resources Operations; collection, interpretation, and presentation of human capital data; military personnel planning and support; civilian recruitment, staffing and placement support; training administration and curriculum development; and total force manpower management and planning. It also includes additional support to the Director of Equal Opportunity and Diversity Management (EO) and Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) program outreach.

As we reported one week ago on our social media #GovConTipLine: one of our Pulse subscribers passed us a note letting us know it was released. This MA IDIQ has a $18B ceiling, 10+ year PoP, and has SB and Large Tracks. Proposals are due 5/18. Sorry we were a little late to report on this, but better late than never. Keep emailing in to our GovCon Tip Line Pulse Fam!
NGA BOOSTING INNOVATIVE GEOINT BAA (BIG) NGA HM047616BAA0001 - - 21-May-18 This Boosting Innovative GEOINT Broad Agency Announcement (BIG BAA) by NGA solicits offers for the award of contracts for inventive, actionable ideas and proposals that will enhance GEOINT and welcomes all innovative ideas for path-breaking research and innovative techniques that may advance the GEOINT mission.

TRUST BENEFICIARY CALL CENTER CONTRACT DOI IBC 140D0418R0028 $11,000,000.00 $12,373,688.62 23-May-18 The Office of the Special Trustee for American Indians (OST) was established under the American Indian Trust Fund Management Reform Act of 1994. OST is charged with providing effective management of, and accountability for, the proper discharge of the Secretary of the Interior�s Indian fiduciary trust responsibilities to account beneficiaries, both individual and tribal. One beneficiary focused trust reform effort was the implementation of the Trust Beneficiary Call Center (TBCC) in December 2004. The TBCC is a nationwide, toll free call center that enables Tribes and Individual Indians to conveniently obtain information regarding their trust assets, check on the status of a trust service, request an update to their account information, or request a disbursement from their Individual Indian Money (IIM) account. To date, the TBCC receives around ~192,000 incoming calls a year which comes to about ~526 calls A DAY.
DOL OWCP RESOURCE CENTER OPERATION AND MANAGERIAL SUPPORT SERVICES DOL OASAM 1605DC18R00012 $60,652,000.00 $50,827,332.50 30-May-18 Public Law 106-398, the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000 (EEOICPA), established a program to compensate nuclear weapons program workers who suffered adverse effects from exposure to beryllium, ionizing radiation, and other hazards in the course of their nuclear weapons program-related work. The Fiscal Year 2005 National Defense Authorization Act, signed by President Bush on October 28, 2004, amended the EEOICPA by creating a new system of federal compensation called Part E. Part E is administered by the Department of Labor and affords coverage to DOE contractors and subcontractors and certain individuals potentially covered by the Radiation Exposure Compensation Act for exposures to an array of toxic substances and chemicals. DOL Office of Procurement Services (OPS), on behalf of the Office of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP) Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC), has a requirement to continue to procure nationwide operational, administrative management, and technical support services for its eleven (11) Resource Centers located across the United States which support these needs.
2018 Burning Man Event BLM Network Services & Support DOI BLM 140L3918Q0055 - $108,710.00 30-May-18 For all that don't know - Burning Man is kind of a big, weird deal for the creatives of the world. Starting approximately at 3:00 AM on Sunday, August 26th DOI BLM will be needing a GovCon to provide critical IT services to support the special event until it burns out on Monday, September 3rd. Since BLM is partially responsible for ensuring public safety, the special IT services will be critical in ensuring the law enforcement and incident network is fully functional, operational, and reliable. High Desert Internet Services has been the incumbent GovCon since 2016.
BLACKJACK PROGRAM BAA DARPA HR001118S0032 $117,500,000.00 - 06-Jun-18 Blackjack will develop and demonstrate a low earth orbit constellation that provides global persistent coverage. DARPA envisions five separate categories of contracts across multiple opportunities; commoditized bus, payload, autonomy/integration, launch, and operations. This BAA is focused on the first two categories: payloads (Track A) and commoditized buses (Track B).
DARPA DISRUPTIONEERING FOR DEFENSE SCIENCES OFFICE DARPA DARPAPA1801 $1,000,000.00 - 20-Feb-19 Being a "disruptor" was so last year. This year it is more about the verb "disruptioneering" - disruption + engineering. What is "Disruptioneering"? It's DARPA's Defense Sciences Office's new initiative to accelerate the pace of scientific discovery by streamlining the funding of innovative ideas in specific areas of interest to DARPA. This new approach enables DARPA to initiate a new investment in less than 90 days from idea inception. These Special Notices will focus on technical domains important to DSO's mission pursuing innovative research concepts that explore Frontiers in Math, Computation and Design; Limits of Sensing and Sensors; Complex Social Systems; and Anticipating Surprise.
