Dugway Proving Ground (DPG), the nation’s major test facility base for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosives (CBRNE) defense programs, has issued a Request for Information (RFI) to identify companies capable of providing information technology (IT) support services for DPG’s West Desert Test Center.
The overall focus of the IT efforts is to support the Test Mission Management System (TMSS), an enterprise wide system that supports the acquisition, transfer, analysis, presentation, delivery, storage, protection and archival of all test data. This is accomplished with the maintenance and support of workstations, servers, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) and Government-off-the-shelf (GOTS) software administration and maintenance, full software development life-cycle projects, and full service desk functions.
According to the procurement posting, there are approximately 30 physical servers in the test center with nearly 100 virtual servers running on VMWare. Networks are Nortel and Cisco with ad-hoc wireless networks using a variety of products from Cisco, Bridgewave, Antenna Products and Persistent Systems.
There are approximately 750 workstations supported on the TMSS network, primarily running the Army Windows 7 AGM build. In-house software is developed with tools such as Visual Studio .NET, C++, and Java; data analysis programming is developed using PV-Wave and SAS. The solicitation states that many custom applications are hosted and maintained within a Microsoft Sharepoint 2010 environment.
Interested contractors should have knowledge of working with related chemical and biological equipment systems and programs. A determination on the contract type, mechanism for procuring the services, and possible set-aside will not be made by the Government until after the market research has been completed. No proposals are being requested or accepted under this synopsis.
Full details are available under Solicitation: W911S612RXXX1. The deadline for response is May 3, 2012.
