The U.S. Cyber Command has published a request for proposals on a potential five-year, $475 million contract for information technology and cybersecurity support services, Nextgov reported Friday.
Aliya Sternstein writes Cybercom could issue up to 20 task orders for vendors to help build offensive and defensive tools for the command to deter attacks on military networks.
Contractors would “assist in providing maneuver, fires and effects through the application of capabilities in and through the cyber domain, ” the command’s RFP stated.
The contract will also cover business process re-engineering, knowledge and records management, technology research and development, cyber training, logistics, intelligence and security support services.
Interested parties can submit their proposals until May 30.
