The U.S. Interior Department has issued a request for proposals for hosting services based in cloud computing, the department’s acquisition directorate announced in a July 19 FedBizOpps notice.
DOI issued a similar RFP in February, seeking a contractor to merge seven email platforms into one cloud-based system and provide collaboration services.
The government expects to award several indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contracts through a full and open competition, according to the most recent RFP.
Vendors will be required to provide hosting services for file transfer, virtual machine, database, web hosting, development, test environment and SAP applications.
DOI intends for this contract to support the government’s 25-point information technology reform plan, data center consolidation initiatives and the cloud-first policy.
Responses are due by 2 p.m. Sept. 7 and the department plans to hold a pre-proposal conference Aug. 2.
