The U.S. Air Force has released a preliminary request for proposals for a follow-on procurement vehicle for information technology support services to the National Air and Space Intelligence Center.
USAF plans to accept industry feedback on the draft solicitation notice for the Communications and Enterprise IT Support Services indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract through Dec. 31.
The branch established NASIC to produce air, space and cyber intelligence data that can support national policymaking and military operations.
COMET tasks will encompass help desk, cybersecurity, accounts management, video teleconferencing, software installation and IT service management support.
A selected contractor will also provide desktop support for Red Hat Linux and Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) Windows workstations in addition to ensuring cybersecurity compliance with USAF, Department of Defense and intelligence community standards.
Contract work will take place at Wright Patterson AF Base and Springfield Air National Guard Base.
A request for information notice released in March stated that the follow-on vehicle will have an ordering period of five years.
