The U.S. Air Force has released a draft request for proposals for a potential 10-year, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for enterprise cybersecurity support services.
The Enterprise Cyber Capabilities multi-award, IDIQ contract seeks to streamline the acquisition process for cyber services, enable warfighters to maintain information advantage over adversaries in cyberspace and reduce the Air Force’s information technology footprint, according to a presolicitation notice published Monday.
The EC2 program will have unrestricted and small business pools that could be worth $5 billion to $6 billion combined over a 10-year period.
According to a performance work statement, the EC2 contract vehicle will have a five-year base period and five option years and support the entire cyber framework, including C2, cyber planning, operations, cyber analysis, full spectrum testing, modeling and simulation, threat assessment support, software and tool development, real time operation and integration activities, vulnerability research, intrusion detection and prevention, strategic management and cyber qualification training.
The service expects to award the contract by the first quarter of fiscal year 2023.
The Air Force will accept questions on the draft RFP through May 16 and and hold a pre-solicitation conference on May 17.
